List of Import Documents from Ashur Brick

This document contains the sampling and testing method for common Iraqi bricks ( Dimension,Compressive Strength, Water Absorption, Efflorescence and more)

 

Detailed Laboratory Report by Sulaymaniyah Construction Laboratory which is part of Ministry of Construction and Housing in Kurdistan Region of Iraq which shows the compressive strength (megapascal), water absorption % and dimension tests that all have been passed successfully by Ashur Brick Load Bearing Bricks.  

Detailed Laboratory Report by the respected Engineering Consulting Bureau of Mosul University which is part of Ministry of Higher Education   of Iraq which shows the thermal conductivity (U-Value) of Ashur Brick Common Brick, Load-bearing bricks and Hollow Bricks which is very important in determining the insulation capabilities of our bricks and walls created with our bricks.  

COLOUR AND TEXTURE VARIATION

Our clay bricks are made from naturally occurring minerals that are kiln fired to lock in their colour and strength for life.
The composition of the raw materials as well as the firing process may cause each run to differ. The resulting colour and texture variation is inherent in the process and part of the appeal of our natural products.
The product images in our brochures and on this website give a general indication of colour for your preliminary selection.
We recommend you also view current product samples and look at actual finished projects before making your final selection.
