Cement is a folio, utilized as fixing in the mix with sand and stone to make a composite material called cement. The three constituents all alone have no genuine quality, however, when bound together, stones interlock like a 3D jigsaw riddle and sand and concrete fills the holes. Cement pastes the stones and sand together yet the stone gives cement its shear and compressive quality, not the concrete.

How To Mix Concrete?

  • Spread a plastic sheet on the ground.
  • Measure out the materials.
  • Place the stone and sand into a heap on the sheet.
  • Place the cement over the heap of sand and stone.
  • Scoop the material in a heap to the other side, making another heap and rehash multiple times.
  • Make a profound pit in a heap and include water.
  • Crease the blend in from the sides.
  • Keep on collapsing inwards and "slash" the heap to circulate water through the blend.

Cement Mixing Ratios

A broadly useful blend reasonable for settling posts, making cement cushions, entryway steps, and floors for sheds and so on and you can call it as a C20 blend. You need to blend the materials by volume not weight.

A C20 blend comprises of:

  • 1 section concrete
  • Two sections sand
  • Four sections stone (total)

Then again a blend of sharp sand and stone, now and again called weight, and you can utilize, and you can blend this 6 to 1 with the cement.

A more grounded, harder wearing C30 blend, reasonable for more thin cement sections, for example, asphalts, comprises of:

  • 1 section cement
  • Two sections sand
  • Three sections stone (total)

Preferably stone ought to be 15 to 20 mm in size (9/16 to 13/16 inches).
