Removing Protective Wax from METROBRICK®


Covering the brick surface with paraffin wax is an important option to consider when using thin brick with cast in place concrete.

METROBRICK® is available waxed to reduce the likelihood of cement and other contaminants adhering to the brick face during installation. Completely removing the wax once the brick is in place exposes the clean brick surface and is part of the installation process.

The METROBRICK website includes instructions for proper removal of wax from the bricks once the panel is formed. Wax removal information includes required equipment, appropriate water temperature, water pressure range, and the importance of spray distance and direction.
