What Is Lime (Hydraulic)?
It is an important binding material used in building construction. Lime has been used as the material of construction from ancient times.
When it is mixed with sand it provides lime mortar and when mixed with sand and coarse aggregate, it forms lime concrete. Lime is a good building material for construction its use in the construction of foundations, walls, plastering, white washing is known to you.
Structures like forts monuments, please, bridges constructed years back stands today in good condition of time. The use of lime has been reduced with the introduction of cement. This is because of cement.
- Takes less timer fro setting
- Has More Strength
- Having desired Properties
- Stored for longer periods etc.
Types of Limes

- Hydraulic lime:
- Poor lime:
What Is Cement?
Cement is a commonly used binding material in the construction. The cement is obtained by burning a mixture of calcarious (calcium) and argillaceous (clay) material at a very high temperature and then grinding the clinker so produced to a fine powder.
It was first produced by a mason Joseph Aspdin in England in 1924. He patented it as portland cement.
