Carbon brick is made from high quality carbon containing materials and acid proof organic compound, which is shaped under high pressure and bonded by high quality bonding material, giving high mechanical strength.
Chemical Carbon bricks are used in chemical- resistant construction in exposures which cannot readily be handled by other kinds of brick.
Carbon filled materials are every- where indicated under conditions involving HF and strong alkalis. Brick made of carbon is, at this time, the only construction units which can with-stand these chemicals. The relatively high porosity of carbon brick and other units explains to a large degree their ability to withstand thermal shock and to dissipate compressive stresses better than any other types of masonry units.
Carbon brick are inherently non wetting and highly resistant to many acids, alkali, salts, and solvents and combinations of these chemicals at varying temperatures and concentrations.
