Concrete is a masonry product composed of cement, sand and gravel or other coarse aggregate. When water is mixed in with concrete, it activates the cement component, the element responsible for binding the mix together, to form one solid object. Concrete is often used in hardscape construction. For instance, concrete may be used to form the flooring of a patio, or concrete footings may be used to support a wooden deck.
A cement mixture containing sand and gravel which is combined by mixing with water, poured to a desired shape, and hardens as it dries.
A mix of portland cement, sand and water. The standard construction recipe calls for one part portland cement to three parts sand/rocks.
A aggregate of portland cement, sand, and gravel or crushed stone. Much stronger than a sand/cement mixture.
Concrete is composed of aggregate, water and cement. Aggregates are usually made up of fine or coarse particles, or from graded particles such as crushed stone sieved to produce the require size.
A flooring material made from a mixture of sand, gravel, Portland cement and modifying additives, which react, with water to form a hard rocklike sub-stance. Portland cement is the 'glue' which holds the other materials together. Hardening occurs through hydration of these materials.
A mixture of portland cement and any other hydraulic cement, fine aggregate, course aggregate and water. The approximate weight of cement is 150 pcf.
fresh concrete is a semi-fluid mixture of Portland cement, sand, gravel, or crushed stone and water.

the common name for "Portland Cement Concrete Pavement". A hard, compact building material formed when a mixture of cement, sand, gravel, and water dries.
A mixture of sand, stone, cement, water and additives used in construction
A hard building material made by mixing a cementing material (such as portland cement) and sand or gravel with water. Commonly used in construction of sidewalks, building foundations, and more.
made from cement binder and aggregate, it then hydrates and hardens into the stone surface. The traditional term for concrete was â€˜liquid stoneâ€™.
An artificial stone made by mixing cement and sand with gravel, broken stone, or other aggregate. These materials must be mixed with sufficient water to cause the cement to set and bind the entire mass.
A basic building and paving material made by mixing water with sand, gravel, and cement.
a structural building material which can be cast in fluid state but will set to a firm solid. It consists of sands and stones with water and a binder such as cement or hydraulic lime. This differs from mortar in containing much larger aggregate sizes.
A measure combination of cement, sand, water and aggregate that through the hydraulic properties of the cement bind together to achieve a building and architectural material with high compressive strength.
concrete is a mixture of two components, paste and aggregates which through a chemical reaction "sets up" or hardens to a predetermined strength. The paste is composed of portland cement, water and air and the aggregates are inert minerals such as sand, gravel and crushed stone. As hydration occurs, the paste binds the aggregates together into a strong, stable, solid mass
Mix of cement, ballast, water, and waterproofing agent if required. Used for foundations, patios, driveways, screeding, oversite etc.
A material (often used in building construction) comprised of sand or gravel held together with a mortar or a cement adhesive. In its thick liquid form, it can be poured into a mold and allowed to harden or "set" to produce a three-dimensional form.
a composite material consisting of aggregate particles bound together in a solid body by a cement.
A composite material that consists essentially of a binding medium within which are embedded particles or fragments of aggregate, usually a combination of fine aggregate and coarse aggregate; in portland-cement concrete, the binder is a mixture of portland cement and water
A hard stone-like material made by mixing sand, an aggregate such as crushed stone or gravel, cement and water, and allowing mixture to harden.
A mixture of Portland cement, sand, gravel, and water used in building construction for foundation walls, floor slabs, footings, etc. CONDENSATION - Drops of water formed when warm moist air is put in contact with an area having a lower temperature than that air. Drops form when air can no longer hold moisture.
A mixture in which a paste of portland cement and water binds aggregate into a rocklike mass that hardens due to the chemical action of cement and water.
Structural material comprising a mixture of fine aggregate, coarse aggregate, cement and water.
cement mixed with coarse and fine aggregate (pebbles, crushed stone, brick), sand and water in specific proportions. Available in three types: precast, reinforced, and prestressed.

Mixture of cement, sand, gravel and water that hardens into a rocklike mass.
An artifical, stonelike building material made by combining cement with aggregate and adding sufficient water to cause it to set and bind the materials together. There are various mixtures to meet specific performance requirements. It is also commonly reinforced by placing steel mesh or rods before pouring into the forms.
a mixture of sand, gravel, and pebbles in a binding material such as mortar
The conglomeration of Portland cement, sand, aggregrate, and water. When added together there is a posilonic reaction which creates heat and causes the materials to bind together and harden. Used in structural foundations, floors, sidewalks, etc.

A hard compact building material formed when a mixture of cement, sand, gravel, and water undergoes hydration.
Concrete consists of a mixture of cement, sand, aggregate and water. Concrete continues to harden over a long period of time and becomes harder and stronger with age, although it is subject to cracking under the pressure of heat, cold and water.
A strong construction material made up of pebbles, sand, gravel, stone in a mortar or cement base.
A mixture of cement, sand, and gravel.
The mixture of volatile oil, waxes and colour that is obtained after an aromatic raw material such as flower petals are extracted with a highly volatile solvent e.g. Hexane. The term refers to the fact that after the solvent is removed the mass is solid and waxy.
