Bricks have been used since the dawn of time by man and are still used today in construction and our everyday lives. When we put up a wall or when we build our house we use bricks. But when we need to build our furnaces we get firebricks. Normally if someone were to build a furnace or a stove using everyday materials those materials would melt away very fast because of the heat. So that is why firebricks are used.
Victas offers some very qualitative firebricks on the market that a lot of people find to be very useful. It is a matter of safety and of quality. When in winter you turn on your stove to heat up the stove needs to be working that means its core components are not in the direct line of high temperature and protected by refractories.
But firebricks are not only about stoves and furnaces they are also about ovens. Some of the best food cooked outside in an oven was made with the heat preserved by a firebrick. Take into account another very important element they are not heavy. Some bricks are heavy but the firebricks made by Victas are about 1.75 kg so anyone can pick them up and put them to use.
We also have to make a different between dense bricks used in factories and in special machines and those bricks called insulation bricks. Dense heavy bricks have a higher temperature point and their usage is mainly industrial. Insulation bricks are lighter and their usage is more commercial.
When looking to buy refractories and bricks there are sets which will help you in making the right choice. Victas has sets of 15 bricks which can be easily put together to form the archway of your grill or pizza oven. There is also the issue of how to glue the bricks together because you need a special kind of cement for these special bricks. Victas also comes in with a special mortar to keep the bricks in place.
There are many other applications for refractories but it is worthy to mention the delicious taste of a pizza made on an oven heated by a firebrick. All the ingredients melted together so well because the heat stayed inside the oven even after it was turned off. It is truly a remarkable product and Victas makes some really good firebricks that many people go for.
Beyond their quality and components the feeling of being warm in the winter time because of properly used warm bricks and refractories in the furnace is something that someone has to experience. Also there is the fact that in a lot of places on the market they are not expensive and can be purchased with relative ease.
