Engobed Long Format Bricks

Engobed long format bricks have a coloured clay coating applied to the natural terracotta surface. Engobed bricks have a decorative and durable finish due to their terracotta surface and unique appearance.

Often, the Engobed effect allows the sunlight to alter it’s appearance depending on the position of the sun throughout the day. Married to the traditional appearance of a long format brick, Engobed long format bricks can be tinted with different colours to add texture, depth, and colour to buildings and walls.
