What is cement

Cement is a type of binder that is used in the building industry for the production of concrete or mortar mixtures . It is a powder binder which after mixing with water forms a slurry and then hardens and hardens . It is designed to connect other building materials . After hardening in the air, it hardens further under water.

The first use of cement-based binders dates back to about 200 BCE to ancient Rome. In the modern history, the patent for cement production was acquired in 1824 by John Aspdin. In Bohemia cement began to be produced in 1860, in Bohosudovo near Teplice.

Cement and water together form a strongly alkaline mixture, so there is a risk of skin burns. In particular, it is necessary to prevent the ingress of cement into the eyes and inhalation of cement dust.
