From the early days of supplying a small amount of firebrick to a small group of customers, Claypave's refractory business now supplies kiln car furniture to some of the major companies within the clay industry. Products made from refractory material have the ability to retain their physical shape and chemical identity when subjected to high temperatures. Claypave prides itself on its ability to manufacture a superior refractory brick, using high quality local and imported raw material.

Claypave's commitment to quality has been the hallmark of our success.

 We also manufacture shiplaps, deck blocks and kiln car furniture. Then if you need something to put it all together, try our Rylbond Mortar. We also stock a range of fireclays and grog in different grades.
As you can see, we can meet almost any Refractory need you may have.

 Rylbond Mortar
This is a pre-mixed mortar used to bond the bricks together. It is an air set product and only needs to be applied at no more than 2 mm thick. If applied any thicker it may not cure entirely, leaving a faulty joint. Approx 48 hours drying time is required and then the heat can be turned up slowly to get the maximum hardness.
