CEMEX is one of the largest and producers of the most-used construction material in the world: cement. When its cement is mixed with water and aggregates (sand and gravel), the resulting chemical reaction transforms this powder into solid rock that builders can shape and mold. Because of cement's favorable qualities and uses, people and institutions worldwide use CEMEX products to realize their architectural, artistic, religious and cultural visions. The company produced its first batch of cement in 1906. CEMEX s professional high-strength concrete is suited for building structures, wide spans or very high elements, from a small home to the structure of an entire building. Its professional architectural concrete brings out the beauty of each work with a variety of colors, stamping designs and textures. With a location in Odessa, Texas, CEMEX s other products include an antibacterial concrete, duramax concrete, a fire-resistant professional or light cellular concrete and its crack-resistant EXTRA-500.
