Description O presente artigo apresenta uma pesquisa sobre as fábricas de ladrilho hidráulico que funcionaram em Campina Grande, com foco na Fábrica Metro Materiais, a antiga “Fábrica de Mosaicos Resistência”, a primeira fundada na cidade inaugurada em 1947 e a única que existe atualmente no Estado da Paraíba. Popularmente conhecido como mosaicos, essa tipologia de revestimento foi um elemento construtivo importante na constituição histórica da arquitetura de Campina. A cidade foi palco de grande desenvolvimento em diversos setores industriais e, por isso, torna-se importante a investigação da trajetória das fábricas de ladrilhos hidráulicos que funcionaram no município. A pesquisa empenhou-se em detalhar o processo de fabricação dos ladrilhos produzidos pela fábrica Metro com o objetivo de registrar as técnicas e as ferramentas desenvolvidas empiricamente, utilizadas no fabrico do produto.
The present article presents a research on the hydraulic tile factories that worked in Campina Grande, focusing on the Metro Materiais Factory, the former "Fábrica de Mosaicos Resistência”, the first one founded in the city inaugurated in 1947 and the only one that currently exists in the state of "Paraíba". Popularly known as mosaics, this type of cladding was an important constructive element in the historical constitution of the Campina architecture. The city was a stage of great development in several industrial sectors and, therefore, it becomes important to investigate the trajectory of the hydraulic tile factories that worked in the municipality. The research focused on detailing the process of manufacturing the tiles produced by the Metro factory in order to record the techniques and tools developed empirically used in the manufacture of the product. The importance of the present study is justified because of the scarcity of literature on the subject, resulting in the preservation of history and manufacturing techniques, through the record of the industrial patrimony of Campinense addressed in the research. Thus, the contribution of the results opens the way for future research that works on the divulgation of the history and preservation of the industrial heritage from "Campina Grande".
