Composition and manufacturing of concrete

Function of composition of cement

Lime forms nearly two-third (2/3) of the cement. Therefore sufficient quantity of the lime must be in the raw materials for the manufacturing of cement. Its proportion has an important effect on the cement. Sufficient quantity of lime forms di- calcium silicate and tri-calcium silicate in the manufacturing of cement. Lime in excess, causes the cement to expand and disintegrate.
