Benefits Of Cement In Hertfordshire

Cement Hertfordshire companies will usually produce concrete, mortar, and/or grout as these are the most common uses of cement. Cement and concrete are words which are usually used interchangeably or even confused for one another; however cement and concrete are two very different things. Cement is the “glue” which holds the aggregate components of concrete, mortar, and grout together as a hardened solid and has been used for construction purposes since the ancient times, first by the Ancient Macedonians and then later by the Ancient Romans.

Cement Hertfordshire companies can either make or just distribute cement. Cement can be made several different ways which can have different uses as well; the most common way to make cement is to make Portland cement. Ordinary Portland Cement, OPC, is made from combining quicklime and gypsum, other types of Portland cement are made along the same lines as OPC but with slightly different formulas and ingredients. Some of the variations on Ordinary Portland Cement are meant to be more economic, harder, quicker to set, and other differences in usage. These variations include Portland blastfurnace cement, Portland pozzolan cement, Portland silica fume cement, masonry cements, white blended cements, expansive cements, colored cements, and finely ground cements. There are also several different kinds of non-Portland cements which also use different recipes but most commonly use lime instead of quicklime.

Cement Hertfordshire companies will have the expertise to help you determine which kind of cement is best suited for your needs and may even help you mix it with an aggregate to form concrete, mortar, grout, or other materials which you require for your cement project. Since cement is the substance which binds together the aggregate in concrete and other materials it is usually thought of as a type of glue and some other types of glue are referred to as cement; also, the word “cement” has a meaning very close to something that binds things together and to cement something means to glue together and/or harden. Cement hardens when water is added to the components in a certain ratio; however hydraulic cement can harden regardless of whether or not there is an excess of water around it, if it is under water or in the rain for example. Non-hydraulic cement must be kept dry in order to harden, or cure, and so is not used as often as it’s hydraulic counterpart but still has it’s own unique uses.
