"Σκυρόδεμα" is the actual GR word for concrete, while as "τσιμέντο=cement" is a Latin origin word. They are used interchangeably in real life though. But in the phrase "reinforced concrete" one would always say "ενισχυμένο σκυρόδεμα" and never "ενισχυμένο τσιμέντο" (professional scientific jargon).
