Any applicable errata are included with individual documents at the time of purchase. 3081. 26, – 1: Figure 1 above shows the percentage of strength gain associated with various curing methods.

308.1-11 Specification for Curing Concrete

The appropriate duration of curing will depend on the property that is the slowest to develop. The reaction products formed fill capillaries and shut down liquid water transmission.

Concrete — Drying vs. Additionally, SCP products become a acj part of the concrete while membranes and water ponding are temporary. 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.

SCP Tech Brief: Concrete Curing – Spray-Lock Concrete Protection

Errata are not included for collections or sets of documents such as the ACI Collection. July 30, – 2: Figure 4 shows the performance of treated concrete in water permeability testing in a hydrostatic pressure environment, another reason curing is often called out.

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.

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 document provides requirements for alternative methods for curing concrete.

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. 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.

The action works in the other direction as well, holding in water that would normally evaporate at early ages.

Specification for Curing Concrete

This specification has default adi that may or may not be applicable to a specific project. While membranes degrade over time, and water ponding methods cannot be continued indefinitely, the use of SCP products provides a continuous curing environment. These alternative methods are not necessarily equal in effectiveness, cost, effect on project schedule, or impact on other aspects of the project.

Guide for Specifying Underground Shotcrete. Figure 3 below shows qci performance of treated concrete tested for drying shrinkage, another important reason curing is required, demonstrating improvements over moist-cured control samples.

Figure 2 shows the performance of concrete treated with 3088.1 products versus air and moist cured concrete. Concrete Cracking October 30, – The full and complete returned product will be accepted if returned within 60 days of receipt and in salable condition. 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.


This specification addresses curing methods applied after 3088.1 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.

For a listing of and access to all product errata, visit the Errata page. Because Aco products penetrate into the concrete, they do not form a surface membrane. ASTM C membrane-forming curing compounds were developed as a solution to the need for a time-saving alternative to water ponding.

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