Curing Compounds

Water is one of the most important elements in concrete – without it, concrete would be a pile of aggregate and cement – too much water and the concrete will end up weak and unstable. Maintaining the correct water cement ratio is critical to achieving final strength and reducing shrinkage cracking. There are many products to assist with curing including; Evaporation Retarders, Curing compounds and Curing Blankets.

Curing compounds are applied once the concrete has been finished and forms an impervious film over the concrete preventing evaporation and maintaining correct cement hydration.
