Look: Observe whether the brick surface is fine and uniform, and whether there are visible defects such as speckles and holes.

Knock: Use a thin stick to lightly tap (or tap with your fingers) a suspended tile. The sound is clear, indicating that the tile has no cracks, good sintering, low water absorption, and high strength. If the sound is hoar, it indicates that the tile may have cracks. ; The sound is "sulking", indicating that the sintering of the tile is not good, the water absorption is high, and the strength is low.

Dripping: Apply a few drops of colored liquid on the local surface, wipe it with a damp cloth after a few seconds, and observe whether there are residual color spots on the surface. If there are more color spots, it means that there are more pinholes, easy to be dirty, and the glaze quality is not high; It cannot be scrubbed, indicating that the water absorption of the brick is large and the antifouling ability is poor.
