This action makes SCP products an effective waterproofing agent, even under hydrostatic pressure.

The full and complete returned product will be accepted if returned within 60 days of receipt and in salable condition. Curing August 27, – 4: The reaction products formed fill capillaries and shut down liquid water transmission.

The appropriate duration of curing will depend on the property that is the slowest to develop. 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 30.81 curing concrete.

July 30, – 2: ASTM C membrane-forming curing compounds were developed as a solution to the need for a time-saving alternative to water ponding. 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.

This document provides requirements for alternative methods for curing concrete. adi

Errata are not included for collections or sets of documents such as the ACI Collection. Concrete Cracking October 30, – In other words, the semi-evaporable and non-evaporable water continues to be made available adi hydration until it is consumed or an equilibrium state is achieved when SCP products are used.


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.

Figure 2 shows the performance of concrete treated with SCP products versus air and moist cured concrete. 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. For a listing of and access to all product errata, visit the Errata page.

ACI Specifications for Curing Concrete by ACI Committee

An important consideration when evaluating products for use with concrete is that ASTM develops standards to generate performance numbers while ACI writes the guides and specifications that are used to put the numbers generated into practice. This specification addresses curing methods applied after placement of concrete and does not apply to internal curing use of saturated lightweight aggregate or other materials to provide supplemental water or to accelerated curing heat curing.

February 26, – 1: Guide for Specifying Underground Shotcrete. Choose Product Language English.

Specification for Curing Concrete

These items are not eligible for return. 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. Additionally, SCP products become a permanent part of the concrete while membranes and water ponding are temporary. The action works in the other direction as well, holding in water that would normally evaporate at early ages. Because SCP products penetrate into the concrete, they do not form a surface membrane.


Figure 1 above shows the percentage of strength gain associated with various curing methods. At least two ASTM C09 subcommittees are currently working on standards to better evaluate the performance of colloidal silica. Until those standards are available, and ACI aaci Figure 4 shows the performance of treated concrete in water permeability testing in a hydrostatic pressure environment, another reason curing is often called out.

The materials, processes, quality control measures, and inspections described in this document should be tested, monitored, or performed as applicable only by individuals holding the appropriate ACI certifications or equivalent. Any applicable errata are included with individual documents at the time of purchase.

Concrete — Drying vs. This specification has default settings that may or may not be zci to a specific project. These acii methods are not necessarily equal in effectiveness, cost, effect on project schedule, or impact on other aspects of the project.

While membranes degrade over time, and water ponding methods cannot be continued indefinitely, the use of SCP products provides a continuous curing environment.
