Cement industry in India – additional information

One of the most commonly used building materials in the residential and non-residential construction industry is cement. Aside from its use as a binder, cement is also a basic ingredient of concrete, mortar, stucco and most non-specialty grouts. There are several different types of cement which vary in composition and their end-use purposes. Requirements given by various construction projects often determine the cement types used, based on performance or placement conditions. Quick setting cement, for example, consists of small amounts of aluminum and sulphate and is used in works that must be completed in a short period of time.
