Some Concrete History
Concrete has existed since 300 BC. The Romans used it to create the ancient structures that modern archaeologists continue to find. The Romans used concrete exclusively from 300 BC to 476 AD, though the concrete they used was made from different materials than today. However, the original idea came from them.
The concrete the Romans used was made of quicklime, pozzolana, and an aggregate of pumice. The concrete we use today is made from a mixture of Portland cement (10-15%) and water (15-20%) to make a paste. We then mix this paste with aggregates (65-75%), such as sand, gravel, or crushed stone. When the cement and water mix, they harden, combining the different materials to create a solid substance.
When you speak of concrete, many people think of dull, gray sidewalks. However, concrete can have other colors and uses. It can also have patterns and be polished. Concrete can be used to create a one-of-a-kind fountain, a floor, an entire building, or even a pathway. This building material can be used any way you can think of. The only limit is your imagination!
