Bricklaying – A Skill Unlike Any Other

Deno Biondillo, Project Manager for HWI’s Value Added Services (VAS) group, joins High Temperature Times™ this month to share tips and tricks from his 40 years of experience in bricklaying. Bricklaying is a skill that is unlike any other. From the consistency required across laying thousands of brick, to the measuring and cutting to transform dimensions, to the precision and accuracy required to achieve high performance, the process of becoming a master bricklayer is a long one. So if you’re a regular consumer of refractory brick, or lay them yourself, grab a pew and listen in. If you’d like to learn more about HWI’s brick product line or how to get Deno out to your shop for some hands-on education, contact our technical marketing group.
