Congratulations for this unique brick
By the homogeneous mixture of manganese dioxide with grey-red baking Löss loam, Nelissen Brickworks obtains a red-brown brick. The brick has a surface with fine-grained sand and colours that vary from orange-brown to purple-brown brick with blue shades.
This hand-moulded facing brick is made from Limburger löss clay from the plateau of Kesselt in the valley of the Meuse and revalue with raw materials from the Volcanic Eifel.
The facade bricks (non-perforated) have five sand covered sides and one oblong groove. The structure looks rugged with fine and irregular grooves in the sandy surface. The baking process takes place in a gas-heated tunnel oven under slightly reduced atmosphere.
