Mould-made clay block of application class Ib (= approved for load-bearing walls). Can you build load-bearing walls with clay? Yes, with the clay block 1800 NF. 30 years ago, CLAYTEC developed this block, which is unique on the market. The normal format (NF) makes it particularly suitable for small-scale repairs of historic solid clay buildings. Heavy clay masonry
Field of application
Mould-made clay blocks of application class Ib for exterior masonry that is plastered all over and exposed to weathering. Can be used for load-bearing masonry. For non-load-bearing interior and exterior walls. For repairing small areas and masonry replacement measures in historic solid clay buildings.

Work with clay blocks according to the rules of masonry. Pre-wetting the clay blocks in the horizontal masonry joints increases the masonry’s strength. We recommend heavy clay masonry mortar (CLAYTEC 05.020, 05.220) as masonry mortar. If lime plaster is planned, scrape out the joints in the fresh masonry sharply to create a recess of approx. 0.3 mm.
