A cement is a substance used in construction that sets, hardens, and binds to other materials to form a bond. Cement is typically used to bind sand and gravel together rather than on its own. Masonry mortar is made from cement mixed with fine aggregate, while concrete is made from sand and gravel.
Cement is primarily used as a binder in concrete, which is a foundation material for all types of construction, including housing, roads, schools, hospitals, dams, and ports, as well as for decorative applications (patios, floors, staircases, driveways, pool decks) and items such as tables, sculptures, and bookcases.
Cement is made by combining calcium, silica, aluminum, iron, and other components in a well controlled chemical reaction. Limestone, shells, and chalk or marl are common cement-making materials, as are shale, clay, slate, blast furnace slag, silica sand, and iron ore.

Sand and gravel or crushed stone are the aggregates, while water and Portland cement make up the paste. Concrete becomes stronger as it ages.
