Abstract
Standard industrial classification and descriptions are given of the cement manufacturing industry. Hydraulic cement manufacture includes production of natural, Portland and volanic cements. Cement uses are classified as concrete block and brick, concrete products, ready mix concrete, and concrete construction. The wet and dry processes of cement manufacture are described. None of the materials involved in the process or use of cement are unusually chemically active or injurious. The free lime gives the cement mild alkaline and drying reaction. The skin and other sensitive organs may be irritated if accidentally and continually contacted. Fine dust as in the feed or product is the principal potential cause for concern involving respiratory and skin problems. Engineering control of dust is described. (Contract No 210-77-0120)
