Portland cement is the basic and most essential ingredient of concrete. Concrete is made when Portland cement creates a paste with water that binds with sand and rock to harden. Cement is a material like glue which can bind together all other building materials and get harden too. The cement is available in different like, 53 grades, 43 grade cement, OPC (ordinary Portland cement), PPC (Portland pozzolana cement), etc. It is most expensive construction materials

Cement Price: 4 to 5 dollar per 50 kg bag or 300 to 350 Rs. Per 50 kg bag.

Steel used in Construction

TMT bars or Thermo-Mechanically Treated bars are high-strength reinforcement bars having a tough outer core and a soft inner core. Steel is a high-strength material compared to concrete. The reinforcing steel is strong in tension as well in compression. It plays an important role in giving strength to structure in construction project.

TMT steel bars are available in Fe 500 grade, Fe 500 D grade and Fe 550 grade which signifies the strength of the steel.

TMT/TMX Price: 45 to 60 Rs. Per Kg or 0.75 to 1 $ per Kg.

Fine Aggregate or Sand

Sand is naturally-occurring material consisting of very small, loose particles of decomposed rocks, corals, or shells. Sand is used to strength, bulk and other properties to construction materials like asphalt and concrete. Sand is also used as a decorative material in landscaping. Some types of sand are used in the manufacture of glass and as a molding material for metal casting. 

Generally, sand is extracted from river bed and cleaned to be used construction. There  is also available manufactured sand also well-known as the M-sand is gaining popularity due to the recommendation from the government and its fineness and dust free quality.

Sand Price: 1500 to 3000 Rs. Per Tonne.

5. TMT Binding Wires:

Binding wires are the thin iron steel wire that used to bind or tight the TMT Steel bars and help in providing proper structure to the construction due to the stability of the TMT Steel Bars. Approximately, in 1 tone of steel work on site consumes 8 to 10 kg of binding wires.

TMT Binding Wires Price: 40 to 50 Rs. per Kg.

Construction and Building materials

6. Coarse Aggregates

Coarse Aggregates

Coarse aggregate extracted by breaking from rocks using explosives & crushed into pieces using machines & coarse aggregate sizes 6mm, 12mm, 20mm, 40mm, 60mm are divided using big sieves in machines & coarse aggregate like 6,12,20mm is used to mix in concrete for construction purposes & 40mm is used for railroads. The coarse aggregate provide main structure to concrete and load-bearing ingredient of the concrete.

Coarse Aggregates Price: 60 to 70 Rs. per Cubic Feet.

Construction and Building materials

7. Bricks/Blocks:

Bricks

Bricks and Blocks are mainly used for building walls. Bricks come in various shapes, sizes and strength based on different construction requirements. Nowadays, Light Weight Fly ash concrete block for wall, parapet and boundary wall construction. They are light in weight compared to conventional bricks.

Bricks: 6 to 10 Rs. per Piece.

Light Weight Blocks: 40 to 50 Rs. per Piece.
