Binders. Although Portland cement is the most commonly used binder, pozzolans may be substituted. Pozzolans are materials that, in addition to undergoing primary hydration, undergo a secondary hydration, producing a gel that fills tiny voids between cement particles, making concrete less porous and less likely to absorb moisture or chemical solutions that can …

Concrete: Scientific Principles

Aggregate is the solid particles that are bound together by the cement paste to create the synthetic rock known as concrete. Aggregates can be fine, such as sand, or coarse, such as gravel. The relative amounts of each type and the sizes of each type of aggregate determines the physical properties of the concrete.

How Concrete is Made - Portland Cement Association

How Concrete is Made. In its simplest form, concrete is a mixture of paste and aggregates, or rocks. The paste, composed of portland cement and water, coats the surface of the fine (small) and coarse (larger) aggregates. Through a chemical reaction called hydration, the paste hardens and gains strength to form the rock-like mass known as concrete.

The use of pozzolans in concrete - Concrete Countertop ...

Pozzolans as Cement Replacements. Typically pozzolans are used as cement replacements rather than cement additions. Adding pozzolans to an existing concrete mix without removing an equivalent amount of cement increases the paste content and decreases the water/cement ratio. In other words, adding more pozzolans to a mix changes the mix proportions.

Aggregates - Portland Cement Association

Rough-textured, angular, and elongated particles require more water to produce workable concrete than smooth, rounded compact aggregate. Consequently, the cement content must also be increased to maintain the water-cement ratio. Generally, flat and elongated particles are avoided or are limited to about 15 percent by weight of the total aggregate.
