The brick units shall be available in both Grades Interior and Exterior of the following types: Type TBS (Standard), which are for general masonry use; Type TBX (Select), which are produced with higher degree of precision; and Type TBA (Architectural), which are selected to produce characteristic architectural effects resulting from nonuniformity in size and texture of the individual units. Materials shall undergo durability, and freezing and thawing tests and should adhere to physical property requirements such as maximum water absorption, maximum saturation coefficient, maximum water loss, breakage, cracking, and weathering index. Bricks should also conform to specified characteristics as to face finish, color and texture, size and dimensions, and warpage.

This standard is referenced in the 2012 International Building Code®.
