Concrete services, Orange, Los Angeles, Riverside County California
Concrete is a composite construction material composed of primarily of aggregate, cement and water. There are many formulations, which provide varied properties. The aggregate is generally a coarse gravel or crushed rocks such as limestone or granite, along with fine aggregate such as sand. The cement, commonly Portland cement, and other cementitious materials such as fly ash and slag cement, serve as a binder for the aggregate. Various chemical admixtures are also added to achieve varied properties. Water is then mixed with this dry composite, which enables it to be shaped (typically poured) and then solidified and hardened into rock-hard strength through chemical process called hydration. The water reacts with the cement, which bonds the other components together, eventually creating a robust stone-like material. Concrete has relatively high comprehensive strength, but mush lower tensile strength. For this reason it is usually reinforced with materials that are strong in tension (often steal). Concrete can be damaged by many processes, such as freezing of trapped water or chemical contamination.
