After drying, they are fired with an oxidizing flame at a temperature of about 900 degrees Celsius. They were originally invented by the ancient Romans and are European Classical design is very popular. As the most traditional material, red brick can also be seen in many countries. It is a popular building material.
Red brick is a typical representative of economical and practical building materials.

The biggest difference between red bricks and blue bricks is that the cooling method is different after firing. Red bricks are cooled naturally, and blue bricks are cooled by adding water (actually a kind of oxygen-deficient cooling), which is relatively troublesome to operate.
The basic mechanical characteristics of red brick are high compressive strength, low tensile strength, strong air permeability, good water absorption, maintaining air humidity, wear resistance, strong plasticity, and a wide range of uses.
The beauty of red brick is that it is unpretentious, natural, durable in texture, and has the effect of ventilation and heat dissipation because of its porousness, so it is very suitable as a wall material.
