A cement is a binder, a substance used for construction that sets, hardens, and adheres to other materials to bind them together. Cement is seldom used on its own, but rather to bind sand and gravel (aggregate) together. Cement mixed with fine aggregate produces mortar for masonry, or with sand and gravel, produces concrete. Concrete is the most widely used material in existence and is behind only water as the planet's most-consumed resource.
Clinker is a coarse-grained material consisting of a combination of baked clay and limestone during the production of cement. It can be called the previous stage of cement. It contains 30% clay and 70% limestone in its structure in cooked form. Before it is made into cement, it is mixed with gypsum at a rate of 2-6% by weight and thoroughly ground. Clinker is a very changeable material. Therefore, the appropriate specifications are used if it is used in asphalt construction.
Clinker also has a binding property on its own and freezes quickly by reacting with water. Clinker (cement), which is ground together with gypsum, freezes more slowly, which provides an opportunity to shape the concrete and place it properly in the molds.
