One solution to the search for greater rationalization and cost minimization that is being studied in civil construction is the use of burned and burned ceramic blocks (BPQ), of the male-female type. In the present work, the quality of BPQ blocks was verified, the blocks being submitted to dimensional analysis, compressive strength verification with and without the presence of water and degradation analysis in the presence of saline mist. The results indicated geometric compliance, but the strengths of the blocks decreased when they were submitted to humidity, presenting variations in the order of 25% of the design resistance, which indicates that there is a need for improvement in the block manufacturing process.
