Concrete is a mixture of several different substances; mostly, it is sand, aggregate, water, and cement. The cement is used for the base of the concrete and also to bind the other elements together. The sand and the aggregate create density and space in the concrete to determine the specific grade and consistency of the concrete. It is poured as a liquid and allowed to cool and harden. As it cools, it cures so that it will be very durable. During that process, the concrete can be patterned.
