Concrete Curing

Concrete curing means controlling the rate and extent of moisture loss from concrete during the first twelve hours so that the concrete can achieve its potential strength and durability.

Concrete that dries out too quickly may not retain enough water for the hardening process, a chemical reaction called hydration. Temperature greatly affects hydration. While hot weather and wind can make concrete harden and gain strength faster, it ultimately leads to weaker concrete than one that's been cured with a membrane and gains strength slowly.

There are many considerations we take into account before selecting the right curing method for a given job.

The most common methods to cure fresh concrete is through:

  • Covering the concrete with an impermeable membrane
  • Applying a suitable curing agent
  • Water curing
