Cement binds concrete material together, cement are made from lime deposit and when mixed with concrete and cured, it gives extremely strong material that can without heavy weight and loads. Cements come in four different types.
The normal cement that is commonly used in construction and most popular among cement family.
Slow-reacting, and is moderate sulfate resistant
Fast setting, with high early strength, when you need to get result in wet areas you can use this type of cement.
Type 4 cement as low heat of hydration. Its ability can be suitable in technical projects that require detailed attention.
Concrete masonry units
You can make concrete masonry units by using Portland cement, mixed with sand and gravel. Depending on the ratio of sand, and gravel, the weight of concrete masonry units varies with aggregates that are in use.
