Specifications for and Classification of Brick

Since the environmental and service conditions that brick are subjected to vary, each brick specification classi-fies brick for its specific durability. The classification is based on the severity of weather and the exposure of the brick. The classification assigned to the brick is typically based on physical properties of the brick. See Technical Note 9B for selection of the appropriate level of durability. The durability classifications for each specification
