Compounds of lime mixed with silica and alumina are commonly used in the manufacture of Cement or Portland cement. Other materials such as silica sand, iron oxide, and bauxite are sometimes used in minute proportions to get the desired composition. Cement looks like a fine powder that is mixed with water to form a hard mass. Cement may be used alone or mixed with aggregates like sand, gravel, clay, or stone.
Cement is the basic ingredient of many other building materials such as gravel, plaster, and concrete and offers high strength and durability. The most commonly used form of cement is Portland cement that forms the basis of concrete, mortar, stucco, and grout.
