Introduction to Concrete and Cement The Korte Company

Cement and Concrete Concrete is a rocklike material produced by mixing coarse and fine aggregates (Portland cement, and water) and allowing the mixture to harden. Portland cement may also be manufactured from any number of raw materials, provided that they are combined to yield the necessary amount of lime, iron, silica, and alumina.

Feb 12, 2019  Cement is a dry powdered chemical that, when mixed with water, slowly reacts to form a new hard, solid compound. On the other hand, concrete is a mixture of cement blended with water and various sizes of aggregates. The cement and water form a paste that glues the aggregates together when it hardens. Concrete, in its freshly mixed state, is a ...

Aug 19, 2011  Introduction. A cement is any substance which binds together other materials by a combination of chemical processes known collectively as setting. 1 Cements are dry powders and should not be confused with concretes or mortars, but they are an important constituent of both of these materials, in which they act as the 'glue' that gives strength to structures.

Concrete: Introduction

Concrete is prepared by mixing cement, water, and aggregate together to make a workable paste. It is molded or placed as desired, consolidated, and then left to harden. Concrete does not need to dry out in order to harden as commonly thought. The concrete (or specifically, the cement in it) needs moisture to hydrate and cure (harden).
