Curing concrete is critical to concrete’s long-term durability. Without proper curing, concrete will only reach a fraction of its potential design strength.
- Cement, the active ingredient in concrete requires constant moisture to gain strength
- If the concrete is kept moist for the seven-day period, it will not only gain strength, but will also shrink less and produce fewer cracks
The above video is from the Fundamentals of Concrete Seminar with an audience of over 70 concrete producers who paid to attend and learn from our experts and answers what is curing as well as a few other facts about curing such as how long should you cure for.
