Curing

Curing requires adequate —

  • Moisture
  • Temperature
  • Time

If any of these factors are neglected, the desiredproperties will not develop

Effect of Adequate Curing on Hardened Concrete

Increased

  • Strength
  • Watertightness
  • Abrasion resistance
  • Freeze-thaw resistance
  • Volume stability
curing methods
Curing Methods

1. Supply additional water with:

  • Ponding or immersion
  • Spraying or fogging
  • Saturated wet coverings
