Advantages to Concrete Curing Testing in Buffalo, NY

According to a guidelines set out by ACI Committee 308, curing refers to "the process by which hydraulic-cement concrete matures and develops hardened properties over time." How the concrete cures and the accuracy of the tests is vital to the success of your project. By storing your samples in a Darwin Chambers concrete curing box in Buffalo, NY, you can test to verify that your concrete:

  • Won't have fissures, technically called crazing
  • Has the correct durability
  • Has the appropriate water tightness
  • Is resistant to abrasion
  • Is not susceptible to shrinkage, which causes cracks
  • Is impervious to freezing and thawing

While the people who prepare the concrete test cylinders and the Buffalo, NY lab the test is sent to will be responsible for a substantial percentage of the accuracy of the testing, their readings will not have any value if the reliability of the sample is put at risk because of a poor concrete curing box. You need to know the precisely the conditions the specimens were stored at. For that reason, every Darwin Chambers portable concrete curing box has a control resolution of 1°F. Other features are:

How to Take Concrete Curing Samples in the Field in Buffalo, NY

ASTM and ACI have strict instructions for how concrete samples are taken and stored in a concrete curing box. To ensure compliance, you must take the following steps:

  • The concrete must be made, cured, and tested 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 at least two samples.
  • The technician must make not of the temperature of the ambient air and the sample.
  • The worker must perform a slump test and an air test.
  • The samples must be kept in a concrete curing box where they will not be perturbed and never go below 60°F or above 80°F.

In addition to the slump and air tests, you must carry out in-field tests and send samples to a lab in Buffalo, NY to take a reading of 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: A compressive strength lab test will apply force to each end of the cylinder until it breaks to see how much pressure the cylinder can hold up against.
