Concrete is at present arguably the most essential product to civil engineering. It is being used to stabilise edging structures for all other types of surfacing, to cast foundations for walls and buildings, protect undergound apparatus and stabilise any other sructure in need of support like for example bollards or signposts. However, concrete can also be used as a form of paving, where it is the hardest of the surfacing materials and is particularly suitable for industrial or agricultural conditions where heavy traffic is likely going to be used. This is especially true for steel or fibre reinforced concrete. This does not exclude it from domestic or leisure industry applications however. Stamped or printed concrete can be used in a decorative situation where it can be installed in place of modular surfacing like block or natural stone. A wide variety of pigmentation is available to produce concrete in a multitude of colours and shades.
