Uses of Cement


Cement is used widely across the world. Here are the list of major uses.

  1. To prepare cement mortar
  2. To prepare cement concrete
  3. To build fire proof and thermal proof structures
  4. To build hydrographic and frost resistant structures
  5. To build chemical proof structures
  6. As a grout material
  7. To construct Cement concrete roads
  8. To manufacture precast members
  9. For aesthetic concrete construction
To Prepare Cement Mortar

Cement mortar is like a paste which is prepared by adding certain quantity of water to cement and sand mixture. Cement in this case is denoted as matrix while sand is termed as adulterant.Plastering is done by cement mortar which gives smooth finish to the structure. Cement molds of different shapes can be made using cement mortar. It is also used to seal the joints of brickwork and stone work or cracks.

To Prepare Cement Concrete

The ingredients of cement concrete are cement, fine aggregate, coarse aggregate and water respectively.ordinary Portland cement is used to prepare concrete. But for special cases many types of cements like rapid hardening cement, high alumina cement etc. are discovered.

To Build Fire Proof or Heat Proof Structures

To with stand against high temperatures and to prevent fire accidents structures should be built with great fire-resistant materials like cement. High alumina cement is more suitable material to make concrete for the structures in high temperature regions.

To Build Hydrographic and Frost Resistant Structures

Most of the hydrographic structures in the world are built using concrete with cement as binding material. Many types of cements like hydrophobic cement, expanding cement, pozzolana cement, quick setting cement etc. are most suitable for constructing water retaining structures. Quick setting cement is very much useful in the case when there is limited time to construct under water structures.5. To Build Chemical Proof StructuresIn chemical industries, different chemicals are stored and they may damage the structure if proper resistance is not there. Acid resistant cement is very much useful in this case.

For Grouting

In general, ordinary Portland cements is used as grout material to which required amount of water and sand is added.To fill very fine cracks or to fill deep thin cracks micro fine cement is most suitable.

To Construct Cement Concrete Roads

Cement concrete roads are more famous as high standard roads which are stronger than all other types of roads. C.C roads have long life span even without proper maintenance. Load wise also they are much capable than all other types.

To Manufacture Precast Members

Cement concrete pipes are widely used as drains, pipes under culverts etc. Water tanks and septic tanks are generally constructed by cement concrete rings. Many other things like garden seats, flower pots, dust bins, lam posts etc. are manufactured using cement.

For Aesthetic Structures

The coloured cement makes the structure beautiful without any painting. Coloured cements generally used for floor finishing, stair treads, window sill slabs, external wall surfaces etc..
