Although the two words concrete and cement are used interchangeably, cement is actually one of the ingredients in concrete. It's the fine gray powder that, in combination with water, binds sand and gravel or crushed stone into the rocklike mass known as concrete. Therefore, even though cement constitutes only 10% to 15% by weight of concrete's total mass, cement is the essential binding agent in concrete.
