CURING COMPOUNDS FOR CONCRETE

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/
