You need to know that your concrete is curing correctly for the best outcome in your project.

  • Won't have cracks, technically referred to as crazing
  • Has the correct durability
  • Has the needed water tightness
  • Is impervious to erosion
  • Has better volume stability
  • Is impervious to freezing and thawing

In order to properly verify the above and have accurate readings, you You need to know the exact conditions under which the specimens were kept. For that reason, we design and manufacture every concrete curing box to have a control resolution of 1°F. Other features are:

  • In-field protected storage of concrete test specimens and dependable heating
  • Comes with comfort grip no-crush handles for easy carrying

How to Take Concrete Curing Samples in the Field in Austin, TX

ASTM and ACI have strict instructions for how to make samples and what humidity and temperature to store them at. To ensure you are obeying regulations, you must take the following steps:

  • The procedure must be carried out by an ACI-Certified Grade 1 Concrete Field Technician.
  • The concrete cylinder must be characteristic of the concrete put in the slab, made up of two different samples from the middle of the concrete load.

Once you have a concrete cylinder, you must maintain it in a concrete curing box until you can perform both on-site and laboratory tests in Austin, TX to measure the concrete's compressive strength:

  • On-site Test: A small device, known as a Schmidt hammer, fires a spring-loaded mass with a defined energy against the surface and reads how elastic or strong the concrete is.
  • Laboratory Test: In a lab, the concrete will be placed in a machine that places increasing amounts of pressure on each end of the concrete until it cracks or breaks.
