The leaflet discusses the importance of the effective curing of concrete to obtain maximum development of strength during the early hardening period. Three methods are used to promote curing; covering the concrete surface with a polythene sheet, keeping the surface moist, and the use of curing compounds. This last method includes four main classes of compound; wax based, chlorinated-rubber based, resin based, and pva based. The use of these types of compound and methods utilized for testing their effectiveness are described. /TRRL/
