Building Material Giant Cemex Launches new Building Block

posted 25.03.2014
The material giant Cemex has launches a new concrete brick which is designed to be a smaller version of the aggregate block, called Readybricks. They have been designed as a spacer or coursing brick and for use where the brick is covered by plastering or rendering, such as in-fills above doors and windows.

Cemex said the UK building industry have got behind the new size with sales of Readybricks exceeding original expectations.

The ReadyBricks come in 2 strengths, 10N and 22N in standard brick size. The new product has gone into production at sites in West Calder, West Lothian; Buxton in Derbyshire and Northfleet, Kent.

The new product includes quarry dust as one of its raw materials which makes it a great environmentally friendly product as quarry dust could potentially be sent to landfill – basically turning waste into a resource!
