Cement

Cement is the most important ingredient in concrete, due to its reaction with water.

Cement is made from a mixture of 80 percent limestone and 20 percent clay. These are crushed and ground to provide the "raw meal", a pale, flour-like powder.

Heated to around 1450o C (2642o F) in rotating kilns, the "meal" undergoes complex chemical changes and is transformed into clinker.

Fine-grinding the clinker together with a small quantity of gupsum produces cement.

Adding other constituents at this stage produces cements for specialized uses.
