  • cement paste: A mixture of cement and water for coating, setting, and binding the aggregate particles together in a concrete or mortar mix.
  • filler: A pigmented composition in liquid or paste form, used for filling the pores or irregularities in surfaces of open-grained woods, preparatory to application of other finishes.
  • iron cement: A composition especially prepared for filling the joints, holes, and other small openings which hold water and cause oxidation. It is therefore not a cement in the usual sense, but is a paste only. The largest part of its substance is composed of iron borings or filings, which must be clean and fresh without oxidization; this powder is held together by a glutinous or adhesive paste, for which there are many formulae.
  • ormolu: Gold crushed with mercury to form a paste. 2. An article or ornamental applique of bronze, first coated with such paste, then heated to evaporate the mercury, leaving pure gold evenly and securely deposited. 3. Any metal or substitute finished to resemble mercury-gilded bronze.
