HAS ANYONE USED THESE?

Postby FT10toLOS » Mon May 18, 2015 12:34 pm

I am currently in Thailand and my girlfriend casually mentions her friends sister makes bricks!!!!! TITS. "Oh really sweetheart, can we go look?
I have seen them on the net before. They are called "soil" bricks on some sites and one site describes them as a fast building technique for third world countries. (250mm long,123mm wide and 100mm high) 40 per m2.

She makes about 1,000 a day, pressed using a dry pack mix of a soil type material, fine aggregate and cement. (don't know the ratios as yet)

They are a dry stack brick, with capacity to accept vertical and horizontal rebar and allowing application of grout or mortar progressively as the wall goes up.

The term soil brick conjures an idea of a crumbly product but with the addition of cement, the product is hard and durable, similar to what I've used in Australia. With the addition of grout, this makes for a very sound STRUCTURAL wall, I imagine.

The quality appears much stronger than the 70mm "cinderblocks" I've seen. I suspect one could simply up the cement content for a more durable product as desired.

I have seen some with decorative panels.

Has anyone used these or have any information about their use?

Regards
Rod

They give you a good insight about the different blocks and how to use them.
Both websites are in Thai.
