• ### How Concrete is Made Portland Cement Association

Cement and water form a paste that coats each particle of stone and sand—the aggregates. Through a chemical reaction called hydration, the cement paste hardens and gains strength. The quality of the paste determines the character of the concrete. The strength of the paste, in turn, depends on the ratio of water to cement.
