Mowbray Blue Bricks have played an important role in the building of Australia. Convicts of the first settlement hand made bricks

that would build the foundation of the nation, particularly in homesteads and farmlands. We thought it fitting to

honour the efforts of these brick making visionaries by naming our Dry Pressed bricks after some of the pioneers

of our early settlement and nation.

MortarIn order to highlight the beauty of your dry pressed bricks, PGH recommend the use of a raked or ironed mortar joint.

Colour VariationPGH™ bricks are made from clay and, as a result, have a natural variation in colour, texture, composition and size. While this produces bricks of great beauty and character, we strongly recommend that bricks with the same batch number be used on your project and that all the bricks you need are delivered in one consignment.

Blending of ProductPGH™ recommend that bricks should be carefully blended from at least four different pallets at the time of laying to provide a blended mottle of colour and texture.

Salt Attack Resistance (Exposure Grade)Bricks are most commonly classified into two categories for

Salt Attack Resistance:

1. Exposure Grade – the product is suitable for a saline or severe marine environment.

2. General Purpose – the product is suitable for general environmental

conditions but not in saline or marine environments.

A severe marine environment is defined as up to 1km from a surf

coast or up to 100m from a non-surf coast.

A marine environment is defined as from 1km to 10km from a surf coast or between 100m and 1km from a non-surf coast.

WarrantyPGH™ do not warrant that our clay products will match any sample, sample wall or brochure. The brick colours shown in this brochure are an indication only and may be different from the actual product. It is a good idea to confirm the availability and view the latest batch colours at one of our Selection Centres before making your decision, and always check the delivered packs as soon as possible. All warranty claims must be made prior to the product being laid.

Terms of SalePGH™ is unable to accept liability for costs incurred as a result of failure or delay in delivery of the product. For a complete copy of our Terms of Sale, please contact a PGH Selection Centre for terms and conditions.

PGH Bricks & Pavers™ range of architectural dry pressed bricks epitomise brick manufacturing excellence.

Dry pressed bricks are also known as “Solid Bricks” and are the traditional style of brick. They have a distinctive signature and can be seen on many buildings, both old and new. Dry pressed bricks are for the brick connoisseur, and like a fine wine, they just get more beautiful with age.

Dry pressed bricks are made by pressing clay into individual moulds at very high compression, and have a grainy yet smooth, velvety appearance. Their extremely square arris is an important component of their aesthetic appeal, as is their beautiful meld of colour.

In ancient times, bricks were made using mud and straw that were pressed into moulds and dried for weeks in the sun. Now with technology for mass production, dry pressed bricks can be made within days.

They are solid and do not have any holes through their body, rather an indent which is known as a “frog”. By contrast, extruded bricks have holes in their body made by “extruding” or forcing clay to form a column which is then cut into evenly shaped, rectangular bricks.

The PGH™ dry pressed palette is designed to match the bricks of yesteryear as much as possible. Although it will never be an absolutely perfect match, it does come pretty close considering the distance of time, the raw materials now used and the modernised process.

Dry pressed bricks should not be thought of as being a ‘renovation only’ brick used to match existing brickwork. They are used to create modern showpieces, especially in education and health projects.

Old city buildings bear the markings of brick craftsmanship using dry pressed bricks – things like archways, bond patterns and detailing that is intricate and lovely. It’s not that bricklayers can’t create such contemporary beauties, but the design must demand it of them, to inspire and encourage them to keep the skills alive.

To enable the creation of modern showpieces, a range of shapes are available. Develop your affinity for these products by creating your own architectural signature.

Built around 1810, “Gledswood”, a 92 square homestead located at Camden Valley Way on the outskirts of Sydney, has a colourful history. As does its namesake brick – the Gledswood Blend – with its mix of blue, brown and cream hues

GledswoodBlend

This wonderfully earthy brick is named after Belgenny Farm, built by convicts in 1805, and predominantly constructed of ironbark. It was part of the original land grant to John and Elizabeth Macarthur.

BelgennyBrown

Named after ‘Mowbray Park’, which was built in 1884 in the Southern Highlands, the beautiful dark blue tones of this brick are reminiscent of the first dry pressed bricks that were used to build some of the early inner city Sydney suburbs.

MowbrayBlue

John Macarthur first arrived in Sydney in 1790. His significant landholdings allowed him to develop his rural operations and he was a pioneer of agricultural exploits in Australia. Similarly, “Macarthur Mix” is a pioneer product of the range.

The first land was taken up in the Megalong Valley in about 1838. Preserving the ways of the old days, “Megalong Valley Farm” gives the public a chance to experience how the first settlers lived and worked the land.

Governor Arthur Phillip explored the Hawkesbury area in search of agricultural land in 1789. Construction commenced on the Hawkesbury Farm precinct not long afterwards and it is now the home of the fully restored “Rose Cottage”.

The red richness of this brick exudes strength and intelligence, and is dedicated to the achievements of John McGarvie Smith, who is best known for creating his own institute to manufacture and distribute his ‘secret’ anthrax vaccine.

Originally built in the late 1800s, “Grantham State Poultry Farm” served as a soldier settlement at the end of the First World War to provide an adequate living for families of ex-servicemen. In later years it has been occupied by the Blacktown City Council.

Note: This product is made to order only. Contact PGH on 13 15 79 for MOQ details.

Named after the cattle property ‘Wolverton Farm’, which is located in Camden, this uniquely coloured cream brick would suit any modern day homestead building with its authenticity and honesty.

The gold tones of this brick are inspired by barley and wheat crops grown on the 5,000 hectare property near Moree. “Livingston Farm” is now a commercial crop-growing venture and earns income for the KSH Livingston Cancer Research Fund.

The following tips for cleaning PGH dry pressed bricks should be done in conjunction with the instructions of Think Brick’s “Cleaning Masonry” resource.

CleaningInformation

Brick cleaning is a specialist trade, and should only be undertaken by a professional

to decrease the potential for damage to the face of your beautiful bricks.

Brick cleaning is an aggressive trade – the chemicals and high water pressures used

can easily damage the product if not done correctly.

To reduce the need for brick cleaning, and as a matter of good brick laying practice, PGH Bricks & Pavers™ recommend the following be done on each work site to reduce the potential for damage to brickwork:

• Lay the bricks as clean as possible

• Lay bricks with industry specification mortar

• Cover brickwork

• Reduce mortar splatter hitting the wall (which turns into

mortar dags) from the mortar board/tray by placing an extra

plank on its edge against the wall

• Bricks should be cleaned within 3 to 14 days of laying

Not all bricks from all manufacturers are the same due to different raw materials

being used and different processes to make them.

To prevent any issues in the future it is a good idea to ensure no active acid has

been left on the wall which may react with galvanised downpipes, fascia, brass taps

or fittings like letterbox slots. Bricks with high iron content can also react with acid

residue allowing iron stains to form over time. Water will not render acid inert it will

only dilute it. When the water evaporates the acid will remain. Bricks should be

neutralised by the application of a bicarbonate solution.

A Neutraliser formula is 10 grams of washing soda or 50 grams of bicarbonate of

soda per litre of water (Ref. Think Brick Australia, “Industry Reference Guide”,

Pg 31).

Dry pressed bricks should be cleaned by hand, not by high pressure water jets.

For more detailed information, ask for a copy of the “Brick Cleaning Supplement”

from PGH Bricks & Pavers™.

NOTE: The use of “General Purpose (GP)” is recommended, not “General Blended

(GB)” cement. General blended cements can contain fly ash, kiln slag and other

materials which may potentially stain brickwork.

1 Scrape as much of the excess mortar from the face of the brick as possible without damaging the brick face. High pressure water cleaning is NOT recommended for this type of brick.

2 Remove any vanadium staining that may appear in the brick before acid washing. This can be more evident in light coloured bricks.

3 Ensure bricks are fully saturated with water before applying any acid. Do NOT let the wall dry out during cleaning.

4 To test the effectiveness of using the acid cleaning method, sample a small area first before using a full work area.

5 Apply the acid to the wall with a brush or spray.

6 Allow the solution to remain on the wall for sufficient time for the reaction to take place. This could take up to 3 to 6 minutes.

7 Keep the work area to a small area, say no larger than 9 square metres.

8 It is recommended to use a neutraliser especially after cleaning light coloured products.

SafetyrequirementsAll acids and proprietary cleaners are dangerous. Users are required by law to:

• Obtain a copy of the manufacturer’s Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) for every chemical used in the conduct of their work and to only use the product in accordance with the instructions in the MSDS. In particular, you are reminded that hydrochloric acid is classified as a corrosive S6 poison. All steps should be taken to comply with the requirements for its use in the MSDS.

• To avoid personal injury users should always wear all necessary safety equipment detailed in the MSDS including but not limited to goggles or face mask, gloves, and protective clothing as advised.
