and also poor compaction ,
well burnt bricks it should be burnt on all sides equally
good shape also all dimensions should be in proper and
As per IS:3495,the average water absorption shall not be
more than 20 persent by weight upto class 12.5 and 15
persent by weight for higher classes in 24hrs.Bricks,which
do not conform to this requirement shall be rejected.Over
or under burnt bricks are not acceptable for use in the
water absorption of bricks depends on classification of
