Concrete is any material or compound that consists of a cementitious adhesive. Concrete is one of the most widely used building materials, and its main feature is cheapness and availability of raw materials. One of the most broadly used concrete products is the concrete curb, which is utilized in the field of beautification and urban planning. The concrete curb is often used as a boundary between two different environments and most of their applications are in landscaping. These curbs are produced in two ways: Dry Press and Wet Press. The concrete used in the production of the curb is usually made of cement, water and aggregates, and various types of additives are used to improve its properties. Admixture in the form of powder or liquid, as one of the components of concrete, is added shortly before mixing or during mixing. The performance and properties of concrete largely depend on the amount and dimensions of the substructures used such as C-S-H particles, cement gels, and capillaries. Some new materials, such as nanoparticles due to the properties resulting from their very small dimensions, can enhance the properties of concrete, including bending strength and abrasion resistance.
