About Cement Concrete : GCCA

Cement’s central use is to bind together the ingredients of concrete – sand and aggregates. Cement is a glue, acting as a hydraulic binder, meaning it hardens when water is added. Cement itself is a fine powder that is made by first crushing and then heating limestone or chalk, with a few other natural materials, including clay or shale, added.
