Clay thin brick is LOPO’s most classic architectural clay product. With more than a decade’s continuous research and innovation, LOPO has added diverse color and texture options and premium physical property to this traditional construction material that first appeared several thousand years ago.
Metallic Series and Handmade Series are two most outstanding series of LOPO’s clay tile. Metallic Series clay thin bricks radiate natural cast iron-like color on the brick surface. This color results from metal oxides being reductive during firing, and has very special visual effects. Hand-molded clay thin bricks are pressed manually in order to form natural and diverse textures to the most extent; those irregular textures make the entire exterior wall more natural and aesthetic pleasing.
