Description of cement

Cement is a hydraulic binder: from the chemical reaction of a finely-ground inorganic material with water an artificial mineral is created, cement stone.

The finer the cement powder, the quicker the chemical reaction occurs (hydration). Hydration is an exothermic reaction, i.e. it gives off heat.

The hardening takes place both underwater and in the air, and after hardening the product retains its strength and stability
