Gouda Refractories manufactures around 50 to 60 different types of bricks in all kind of shapes at its plant in Gouda - The Netherlands.


At the end of 2013 Gouda Refractories commissioned its third tunnel kiln and increased its annual brick manufacturing capacity to 75.000 metric tonnes.


In the highly automated plant high purity raw materials from all over the world are used. Bricks can be fired up to 1.700 °C ensuring dimensional and chemical stability, depending on the quality and the requirements. 


High Alumina Fireclay Bricks

High alumina fire clay bricks made from selected raw materials calcined at high temperatures.   The high density and very low amount of bonding clay give the bricks a low porosity, excellent mec...



Silimanite Bricks

Silimanite bricks, on account of their characteristics, have an own place in the range of refractories.   High refractoriness, very good resistance to spalling and to alkaline slags make these m...



Bauxite Bricks

Bauxite bricks are made from typical selected bauxite raw materials. The quality is generally very abrasion resistant and often used in the cement industry. For application to 1.550°C.   Specia...



Corundum Bricks

Corundum bricks are extremely high-classified high-quality bricks. These qualities combine very low creep, very good thermal resistance and excellent hot properties. The quality is used in high fir...



(Ultra) Low Porosity Bricks

LP and ULP brick series comprise super dense high alumina refractory bricks with an extremely low porosity as every 2% lower porosity reduces chemical ingression by 40 - 50%.   LP and ULP brick...



Chromium Bricks

Chromium oxide corundum bricks with chromium oxide contents of 5 % to 20 % are made with additives that positively influence the elasticity of the brick. Low porosity bricks are also available in ...
