Cement

Cement

Cement is a binding agent for construction materials.

Cement is produced by burning at high temperatures in a definite mixture of calcareous, siliceous, and aluminous raw materials and crushing the resulting clinkers to a fine powder.

Cement is the costliest ingredient in concrete and is available in a variety of forms. When cement is mixed with water, a chemical reaction starts, and the powder transforms into a paste that binds all the materials with it.

The properties of cement depend on the chemical composition, manufacturing process, and degree of fineness. There are almost 16 types of cement used in construction, depending upon the type of structure. The most common types of cement used are Ordinary Portland cement (OPC) and Portland Pozzolana Cement (PPC).

Uses:
Cement is used in concrete for the construction of buildings, bridges, plastering work, dams, railway, roads, etc.
