The Institute offers the opportunity to support brick works in the development of new products. For this purpose we offer the possibilitiy for raw material studies to develop optimal mixtures. Another example are calculations of the heat transfer with respect to hole patterns, which are necessary in order to optimize the insulating of vertically perforated bricks. The IZF is able to carry out the develop of a product from laboratory formats up to original formats  – plus all related material and component tests.
