So its tough stuff? If you guys read the PDF the warnings and health concerns that it brings up worries me? Are these Aladin 80 brick toxic? and should not be used in a Pizza oven? or is it just a typical brick. Im sorry guys, i would really appreciate some feedback. Thanks.

I will call the Manufacture.

I looked through the data sheet and it looks nasty to me. Maybe it's a standard disclaimer but I would wait until someone in the industry chimes in.

To be honest I never looked at the spec's on the brick I used. I am not alone, there are quite a few people here that used the same product as I did. Doesn't make it right, just means we are all going out together (maybe).

Ya im not really picky but i just wanted to make sure, it may be a general disclaimer. I didnt get any answer for the manufacture, they should be closed by now. Ill try tomorrow. I hope its nothing bad.

BTW did you use Pacific Clay? Muddox?

Don't breathe the dust of any masonry product wether it be mortar or a brick being cut. Even asbestos was fairley safe until it was abraided to the dust stage. You will probably find a similar MSDS for just about any masonry product.

Like Gulf said OUCH. My bricks were similar in alumina so be prepared for going through the diamond blades. I went through 12 blades, although cheaper ebay ones, still alot of blades. One ebay you can buy in bulk for about $13 each for 10"

IMO, Alumina is not the biggest health concern but rather crytalline silica which is usually the compliment component in brick composition, IE 80 alumina/20 silica. Silica can cause silicosis which is similar to asbestos related health issues. Like Gulf say, use safety respiratory prudence when cutting and grinding the bricks when the material becomes friable. I found a similar MSDS on the quartz sand I used for my home brew. Take it for what it is worth. Good luck.
