    Cement is a finely ground powder binder, a material that sets and hardens and can bind other materials together, when mixed with water it forms a hardening paste of calcium silicate hydrates and calcium aluminates hydrates. it evokes highly diverse reactions. Cement is used in mortar (a combination of sand and roughly burnt gypsum) and concrete (bulk rock-like building material made from aggregate, sand, and water). By modifying the raw material mix and the temperatures utilized in manufacturing

    together with lime to produce hydraulic cements, whereas today natural or artificial pozzolans are usually used together with portland cement. The hydration of the calcium silicate compounds, C3S (or alite) and C2S (or belite), in portland cement produces abundant calcium hydroxide through the reactions represented by following equations (see Table.1 for cement chemistry nomenclature). 2C3S + 11H → C3S2H8 + 3CH 2C2S + 9H → C3S2H8 + CH Table 1.
