The best way to achieve a defect-free concrete surface is protecting the fresh concrete just after placement until it fully hardens. ACI 308R-16 Guide to External Curing of Concrete states that curing significantly influences the properties of the hardened concrete slab near its surface and at depth. Proper curing also allows the hardened concrete to achieve critical performance characteristics, such as strength, permeability, abrasion resistance, volume stability, propensity for early-age cracking and resistance to freezing and thawing, and deicing chemicals.
Fortunately for contractors, the ASCC/NRMCA Preconstruction Checklist addresses several questions regarding curing. The checklist questions address crucial curing questions such as application methods, periods of coverage, approved products and identify responsibilities for the application, inspection and removal of curing materials.
Curing is the contractor's last step opportunity to protect the quality placement when placement concrete in hot weather conditions. Adopting proper curing procedures is even more critical with the increased use of sustainable concrete mixes.
Experts will discuss the current best-practices contractors should raise during the preconstruction meeting to ensure a defect-free product when working in hot weather conditions.
If you place driveways, floors, sidewalks or roads, the information in this session will help you avoid quality issues.
Learning objectives from this webinar:
Learn the difference between curing materials and when contractors should insist on their use.
Match the proper curing method to anticipated hot weather conditions.
Contractors, architects and engineers who attend this webinar will be given a Certificate of Attendance for self-reporting certification purposes.
