Raw Brick Innovations

 

Recyclable And Waste Brick

ABOUT RAW BRICK

RAW brick is designed  for use in the construction industry to work in conjunction with, or eventually replace, conventional House/Engineering bricks.

The RAW Brick Prototype demonstrates how RAW brick will compare to the bricks in current use.

The photographs section shows how the design of RAW Brick is comparable to that of a standard Engineering brick in size, but with a noticable weight saving.

The advantage of RAW Brick’s design is that it is constructed using non-recyclable waste, as well as recyclable waste, reducing the need for Landfill sites.

CARL RANDLE BIO

Carl Randle (born 20 August 1969), is an Inventor, Modelmaker (BA Hons) and a Composite/GRP technician. He has 34+ years experience in Composite/GRP, Manufacturing/Designing in the Marine/Automotive/aeronautical industries.

He was inspired to create RAW Brick through his skills and expertise, along with his passion for making a contribution to help preserve and protect our planet and it’s natural resources.

There is an increasing awareness and determination to eradicate single use plastic, and Carl’s innovation is incredibly relevant to this discussion.

Carl’s goal for RAW Brick is to help contribute to the reduction of waste, reducing the need for landfill sites and easing the stresses on recycling centres already in operation.

MATERIALS

Comparisons between regular House/Engineering Brick and Raw Brick

House/Engineering Brick

Silica (Sand) – 50% to 60% by weight

Alumina (Clay) – 20% to 30% by weight

Lime – 2% to 5% by weight

Iron Oxide – 7% by weight

Magnesia – 1% by weight

RAW Brick

 Fire Retardant Gel Coat

Fire Retardant Resins

Non-recyclable/recyclable materials

The weights of House and Engineering bricks currently in use, compared against the weight of RAW Brick:

HOUSE (facing brick) = 2.20kg

CLASS B (engineering brick) = 2.33 kg

RAW BRICK HOUSE (Prototype facing brick) = 1.39kg

RAW BRICK CLASS B (Prototype engineering brick) = 1.69kg

%

LIGHTER THAN A HOUSE FACING BRICK

LIGHTER THAN A CLASS B ENGINEERING BRICK

BENEFITS OF RAW BRICK

Reduces the use of valuable minerals/materials from the earth

Uses waste destined for Landfill

Made out of Fire Retardant Materials

Water resistant/waterproof, so can be used as House Bricks and Engineering Bricks

Water resistant/waterproof, so would not need to be sealed or treated

The Prototype is lighter in weight than an Engineering brick and standard House brick

The aesthetic versatility of RAW Brick’s design means that the brick can be produced in any colour/shade and would not need to be painted
