The materials, processes, quality control measures, and inspections described cai this document should be tested, monitored, or performed as applicable only by individuals holding the appropriate ACI certifications or equivalent.
The action works in the other direction as well, holding in water that would normally evaporate at early ages. Concrete Cracking October 30, – ASTM C membrane-forming curing compounds were developed as adi solution to the need for a time-saving alternative to water ponding.
These alternative methods are not necessarily equal in effectiveness, cost, effect on project schedule, or impact on other aspects of the project. An important 30.1 when evaluating products for use with concrete is that Ai develops standards to generate performance numbers while ACI writes the guides and specifications that are used to put the numbers generated into practice.
Figure 4 shows the performance of treated concrete in water permeability testing in a hydrostatic pressure environment, another reason curing is often called out.
ACI 308.1-11 Specifications for Curing Concrete
This action makes SCP products an effective waterproofing agent, even under hydrostatic pressure. This document provides requirements for alternative methods for curing concrete. Because SCP products penetrate into the concrete, they do not form a surface membrane. The reaction products formed fill capillaries and aic down liquid water transmission. Figure 3 below shows the performance of treated concrete tested for drying shrinkage, another important reason curing is required, demonstrating improvements over moist-cured control samples.
Choose Product Language English. These items are not eligible for return. At least two ASTM C09 subcommittees are currently working on standards to better evaluate the performance of colloidal silica.
Additionally, SCP products become a permanent part of the concrete while membranes and water ponding are temporary. According to ACI R, when determining the duration of curing, consideration should be given to the concrete properties that are desired in addition to compressive strength development. Figure 1 above shows the percentage of strength gain associated with various curing methods.
While membranes adi over time, and water ponding methods cannot be continued indefinitely, the use of SCP products provides a continuous curing environment.
The full and complete returned product will be accepted if returned within 60 days of receipt and in salable condition. This specification addresses curing methods applied after placement of concrete and does not apply cai internal curing use of saturated lightweight aggregate or other materials to provide supplemental water or to accelerated curing heat curing.
Specification for Curing Concrete
July 30, – 2: The appropriate duration of curing will depend on the property that is the slowest to develop. The objective of curing is to allow the concrete to meet performance parameters; SCP products produce those performance parameters at a rate equal to or better than moist curing.
Errata are not included for collections or sets of documents such as the ACI Collection. Curing August zci, – 4: Concrete — Drying vs. Guide for Specifying Underground Shotcrete.

Any applicable errata are included with individual documents at the time of purchase. Figure 2 shows the performance of concrete treated with SCP products versus air and moist cured concrete.
Compressive Strength as a Function of Age for a Variety of Curing Conditions ACI R According to ACI R, when determining the duration of curing, consideration should be given to the concrete properties that are desired in addition to compressive strength development. In other words, the semi-evaporable and non-evaporable water continues to be made available for hydration until it is consumed or an equilibrium state is achieved when SCP products are used.
This specification has default settings that may or may not be applicable to a specific project. Until those standards are available, and ACI February 26, – 1: Compressive strength development is the primary reason curing of concrete is required, and SCP products help achieve even better performance that moist-cured concrete, long held as the gold standard of curing concrete.
