Project description:For improving thermal insulation properties of brick products are today the most commonly used different combustible pore-forming agent (wood sawdust and cellulose wastes, etc.). In applying these pore-forming agents we are able to reduce the thermal conductivity to a certain value, because their increase to the formation of so-called black core and other unwanted problems occurs. We have to conclude that to reduction in the value of the coefficient of thermal conductivity of the brick body not yet used all the available potential. In fact, based on preliminary research conducted there are still untapped possibilities. It is a secondary raw material from the chemical and food industries with specific properties. By applying this type of raw material in the form of additives it is possible significantly reduce the value of the coefficient of thermal conductivity of brick body under 0,25 W/m.K. This way of pore forming activity of brick body will significantly to reduce energy intensity of buildings.
