Chimney Liner Brick Shapes

Chimney Liner Brick Shapes

All Belden Chemical Resistant Floor Brick are manufactured to conform to or exceed ASTM C980, and available in Type I or Typee II. Minimum requirements regarding the ASTM C980 specification standards are listed in the table below.

Note: Total Chamfer (Ct) equals 2 x Ct is available in 1/16" increments only. Dimension lines designated as 'C' can be custom manufactured to the size specified by the designer for any chimney liner diameter desired. Dimension lines designated as 'L' can be custom manufactured to the size required up to and including 8"
