LOPO Thin Clay Brick
Thin brick serves as a lightweight and versatile brick siding material that place no additional burden on the building's structure. LOPO thin brick is an extruded kiln-fired brick veneer made from natural clay, which gives the appearance of full-face brick. Hard firing in kilns provide thin brick with durability and high performance that make them suitable for exterior and interior applications in any climate. LOPO thin brick, adheres to strict production standards, can be used in different construction types and applications (include precast). We offer customized service for specific project including wax coating, cutting and grinding.
As we started from a clay thin brick manufacturer, this is our most classic architectural clay product. With decades' continuous research and innovation, LOPO thin brick is available in a wide variety of textures, colors, sizes and shapes options. Metallic Series and Handmade Series are two most outstanding LOPO brick tiles series. Metallic Series radiate natural cast iron-like color on the brick surface. This color results from metal oxides being reductive during firing and has very special visual effects. Hand-molded thin brick is pressed manually to form unique and diverse textures; those irregular textures make the entire exterior wall more natural and aesthetic pleasing.

Thin Clay Brick Tiles Surfaces and Textures
- Metallic Surface
Clay thin brick with metallic sheen surface is created by using metal oxide in the reduction firing process,which offer a unique design elements for the building facade.
- Handmade Texture
The texture of hand-molded brick slip is completely created by hands. Each piece is unique and aesthetic.
- Matta Texture
The surface of Matta Texture series contains fine grains of sand and irregular marks. The surface of the clay tiles adds a bit of rough texture, which can create unique facade grades for various public buildings and private houses.
- Natural Flat
LOPO Natural Flat series is one of most classic clay thin brick series. The surface highlights the natural beauty of clay, and the color of tile is mild and gentle. It renders an enduring sense and stands well to the test of time.
- Restored Texture
LOPO creates unique flashing surfaces of restored series by adopting special reductive firing technique. The brick surface presents several different shades. The color transition is natural and through different combinations which can render a variety of different facades.
- Frosted Texture
Frosted Texture series applies special technique to sand the clay tile’s surface. Its roughly sandblasted surface brings you to the past and its color renders a nostalgic sense. Rock surface, sand surface, weathering surface and other rough surface texture can be achieved.
- Zephyr Texture
Zephyr Texture series is tailor-made terracotta thin brick with special surface treatment manufactured by LOPO for Japanese designers and Japanese architecture. The surface has treated with multiple processes, showcasing various textures, such as wood grain surface, water erosion surface and clay surface.
- Linear Texture
Linear Texture series clay cladding tiles cover a wide range of thickness with regular or irregular, horizontal or vertical line texture. They can be used for facade to achieve special visual effects by extending the silhouette horizontally or vertically.
- Special Shape
Special Shape series are tailor-made clay thin bricks by LOPO for certain architectural projects. LOPO can customize the products in terms of their shapes, colors, sizes and surface textures as required, helping architects complete each project in a unique way.
Thin Brick Colors
The color of the thin bricks is carefully adjusted by our engineers through different formulations and carefully configured temperature of the tunnel kilns, making it natural and long lasting. The thin brick color palette is available in white, yellow, red, brown, grey etc. It can be fine-tuned to create an infinite offering of color ranges. In addition to single tone and blends, we can also provide flashing surfaces, which give each brick a unique color distribution. Given samples from our customers, we can also match to produce products with similar colors.
Thin Terracotta Brick Features and Benefits
1. Our bricks are extruded thin bricks. Unlike cutting thin bricks from the full bricks, our products are eco-friendly, resource-saving, and more economical than full bricks.
2. Thin bricks feature an easier installation process and a lower installation cost than full bricks. They can be used anywhere indoors or outdoors.
3. Thin bricks are made of natural clay. Fired at high temperature, they have good physical properties and weather resistance, making it more durable and easier to maintain than other decorative materials.
4. Our bricks come in a wide range of tones and surface textures, making it possible to render a classic all-brick look for both commercial and residential projects.
