Strength and Density
Makoro Clay Bricks are exposed to temperatures of around 1350 during the two week manufacturing process. This unique process assures the high strength and density. The high density is what assures that the thermal expansion and shrinkage, of an Approved Clay Brick, is far less than any other building material, therefore greatly reducing the chances of cracks appearing in the walls.
Different colours are achieved by regulating temperatures in the kilns and coal addition to the clay (No colorants are added). Having been exposed to such high temperatures already, one can be assured that the colour of the bricks will never fade.
