set, warehouse (1) the partial hydration of cement stored for a time and exposed to atmospheric moisture; and (2) mechanical compaction occurring during storage. (See also cement, sticky.)

cement, sticky finished cement that develops low or zero flowability during or after storage in silos, or after transportation in bulk containers, hopper-bottom cars, etc.; may be caused by: (a) interlocking of particles; (b) mechanical compaction; (c) electrostatic attraction between particles. (See also set, warehouse.)
