Concrete is a versatile building material composed of a mixture of cement, aggregates (such as sand and gravel), water, and sometimes additional additives. It is known for its strength, durability, and ability to be molded into various shapes and sizes. The cement acts as a binder that holds the aggregates together, creating a solid and rigid structure when it hardens. Concrete is widely used in construction for foundations, walls, floors, and other structural elements. It is also used for sidewalks, roads, bridges, dams, and many other infrastructure projects. The chemical reaction between cement and water, known as hydration, causes the mixture to harden and gain strength over time, making concrete a reliable and long-lasting construction material.

Don’t confuse Concrete, a complete building material comprised of a cement binder and aggregates, with Cement, which is just the binder.
