Compared to brickwork plastering is costlier. Then the ultimate goal (economic) of using bricks as building components will fail at this moment. 3. Hardness. Good quality bricks should be hard.

Search the world's most comprehensive index of full-text books. My library. If it’s exceeds 30 the bricks quality must be considered poor. Water Absorption test: When bricks are immersed and soaked in water for 24 hours the water absorption should be below 20%. For example: Initial weight of brick W1 = Kg. After 24 hrs immersed in water the weight of brick W2 = kg.
