OPC (Ordinary Portland Cement) the cement complete used for all general functions and widely used for normal concrete works, plaster, etc. Thus PPC is the best Cement for the development of RCC Slab.

River Sand is more preferred than Robosand for plastering work. In any type of plastering the plasters used are natural sand, crushed stone sand, or gravel sand.
AAC blocks emit less heat within the atmosphere because of less use of cement, steel, and concrete whereas on the opposite hand mineral red clay bricks emit high heat in the atmosphere and also AAC blocks have less material wastage whereas red clay bricks have high material wastage. Hence AAC blocks are more preferable to red bricks.
Tiles, on the opposite hand, are far better than marble because they can be recycled, non-toxic and the process used for manufacturing is safe. Also, marbles are more expensive than tiles, hence it’s preferable to use tiles than marble.
Red bricks produce a really very little quantity of waste and turn out less environmental pollution, thus they’re eco-friendly and degrade utterly. The compressive strength of red brick is enough for any standard construction. Red bricks are extremely fire resistant and simply reusable.
AAC Blocks has an excellent Sound Transmission Class(STC), High Thermal insulation, Earthquake resistance, Floor Space area, and fire-resistant.
M sand or Robosand uses natural coarse aggregates to form and hence is having more strength compared to river sand and hence the density of Robosand is greater than river sand.
CCI is the cheaper cement brand and Vinayaka is the cheaper steel brand available in the market.

The terms cement and concrete are interchangeable, cement is one of the ingredients used in manufacturing concrete. Concrete is a mixture of aggregates and paste. The aggregates are the sand and gravel or crushed stone and the paste is water and Portland cement.
The concrete whose workability as well as durability is increased due to the presence of the air-entrained agent is called air-entrained concrete.
One of the main reasons for the cracking of the concrete is shrinkage. As soon as concrete gets harden and dries it tends to shrink which is due to the evaporation of water.
One of the main differences between crushed and gravel is that gravel is naturally made. It is formed in the natural process from large rocks that get eroded over time resulting in small rocks. Hence crushed gravel is round in shape and has a smoother texture compared to crushed stone.
An open-pit from where we get the minerals extracted is almost the same as the quarry. The one difference between them is that open-pit produce building materials while dimension stone is referred to as quarries.
Sand and gravel are utilized in making concrete, in the construction of roads, for mixing with asphalt, and in the manufacture of construction materials such as concrete blocks, bricks, and pipes.
The process concerned in creating TMT Bars are rolling, water quenching, heat treatment, cooling at totally different stages of production.
Kajaria Ceramics Ltd produces one of the best quality tiles and is the No. 1 brand in terms of quality in almost all uses.
Vitrified tiles are considered the best tiles for flooring as they are highly durable and hence can withstand heavy traffics.
