CEMENT

WHAT IS CEMENT
Material with adhesive and cohesive properties
Any material that binds or unites-essentially like glue.

FUNCTION OF CEMENT
To bind the sand and coarse aggregate togetherto fill voids in between sand and coarse aggregate particleto form a compact mass

PROPERTIES OF CEMENT

1.Providestrengthtomasonry.
2.Stiffensorhardenseasily.
3.Possessesgoodplasticity.
4.Easilyworkable.
5.Goodtomoistureresistant
