What is the difference between a fire brick and refractory brick?

A fire brick or refractory brick are the same thing; a block of refractory ceramic material, used in the

lining of wood fired ovens, pizza ovens, kilns, furnaces and fire places.

Why do I need to use a fire brick?

A refractory brick withstands high heat, and has low thermal conductivity to save energy. Fire

bricks are usually used where there is exposure to significant chemical, thermal or mechanical

stress. These refractory bricks are essential in these high stress situations, as an ordinary brick or

building material will break down, posing a safety threat.

Do I have to use high temperature mortar?

Pizza Over

High temperature mortar is essential where fire bricks and high temperature concretes are used.

When used with other refractory materials, the high temperature mortar ensures ultimate heat

resistance and safety, as well as damage or breakdown prevention.
