A cement is a binder, a substance used for construction that sets, hardens, and adheres to other materials to bind them together. There are two main forms of cement: Geopolymer cement and Portland Cement. Cement is seldom used on its own, but rather to bind sand and gravel (aggregate) together. Cement mixed with fine aggregate produces mortar for masonry, or with sand and gravel, produces concrete. Cement is the most widely used material in existence and is only behind water as the planet's most-consumed resource.
