 for Concreting
From The Collaborative International Dictionary of English v.0.48 :

  Concrete \Con*crete"\, v. i. [imp. & p. p. Concreted; p. pr &
     vb. n. Concreting.]
     To unite or coalesce, as separate particles, into a mass or
     solid body.
     [1913 Webster]
     Note: Applied to some substances, it is equivalent to
           indurate; as, metallic matter concretes into a hard
           body; applied to others, it is equivalent to congeal,
           thicken, inspissate, coagulate, as in the concretion of
           blood. "The blood of some who died of the plague could
           not be made to concrete." --Arbuthnot.
           [1913 Webster]
