The Klinker is one of the oldest building materials. A result of the furnace calcination of mixtures of argillaceous limestone artificially prepared with the addition of other materials, the Klinker is a baked clay brick, used since ancient times in Egypt and China, which continues to be a very important material in the construction sector. It is a material of particular durability and natural beauty, Klinker bricks are suitable for the most aggressive environments.
Its strong resistance to the effects produced by the freezing of water, makes it most suitable for cold environments, while it has the ability to withstand high static and dynamic loads in transit areas, both outdoors and indoors.
As a product, the Klinker offers an insulating system that combines elements such as modernity and economy, guaranteeing insulating qualities conditioned by its base materials, among which is the natural clay and other insulating materials with which it forms an ideal system for the construction of all kinds of modern facades.
Along with its insulation qualities, this material guarantees ease of handling and a distinguishing feature: it can be fixed to almost any substrate, which facilitates its use and diversifies its options, in the context of a material manufactured according to the more stringent quality controls.
By its insulating properties, the Klinker allows you to save up to 35% of energy in a building, which otherwise would have been used in the climate control of the property. Its design and functionality requires less labour in terms of handling, taking into account that it does not require setting, nor waiting to start the placement of finishes, etc.
It is a lightweight material, easy to manoeuvre and transport, suitable for quick and economic work due to its balanced structural behaviour and the simplicity of its construction processes.
As a material, it undergoes less degradation due to the passage of time, maintaining a more durable structure than other more common materials. Finally, its workability opens a world of possibilities at the design and project stage. As a material, it offers extensive manipulation with all kinds of tools, which makes it extremely versatile.
As a material, the Klinker maintains its durability and colour permanence over time. So much so, that it even gains beauty as it ages, being ideal for the restoration of historical environments.
Its characteristics and surface properties make its use pleasant and safe, thanks to its high slip resistance and attractive design.
Manufactured in a large variety of sizes, colours and specialist use pieces – water supply, curbs, etc.- this is an essential element in any restoration process, where its advantages include its adaptability, minimum maintenance, easy and fast use and its long and useful life.
The Klinker brings together, as a material, characteristics that give it value and differentiate it from other materials, such as its inalterable character over time, a factor determined by excellent technical characteristics, which guarantee excellent façade behaviour and avoid the degradation that may occasionally occur in facades and other exposed work environments, such as freezing and other hydrographic problems, these are very common but this material avoids them.
The Klinker material is an excellent decision for external elements, due to the particularities of the clays that compose it, special materials that when baked at high temperatures, close their porosity to the maximum which guarantees a high mechanical resistance and make it unalterable against ice and the most aggressive environmental conditions over time.
