Concrete is a composite material composed of fine and coarse aggregate bonded together with a fluid cement (cement paste) that hardens over time. This material has the ability to harden when it comes into contact with water. When the cement mixes with gravel and sand it forms a malleable material that hardens and acquires a very firm consistency and is called concrete or concrete. Cement is a material that is associated with great durability and hardness but is also characterized by being malleable and allowing to create from it many different shapes.
