Concrete
CONCRETE is a composite material composed of coarse aggregate bonded together with a fluid cement that hardens over time. Most concretes used are lime -based concretes such as Portland cement concrete or concretes made with other hydraulic cements , such as ciment fondu . However, asphalt concrete , which is frequently used for road surfaces , is also a type of concrete, where the cement material is bitumen , and polymer concretes are sometimes used where the cementing material is a polymer. When aggregate is mixed together with dry Portland cement and water, the mixture forms a fluid slurry that is easily poured and molded into shape. The cement reacts chemically with the water and other ingredients to form a hard matrix that binds the materials together into a durable stone-like material that has many uses
