Benefits of Concrete Curing Testing in Charlotte, NC

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 keeping your samples in a Darwin Chambers concrete curing box in Charlotte, NC, you can test to verify that your concrete:

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

While the experts who prepare the concrete test cylinders and the Charlotte, NC lab the test is sent to will be responsible for a substantial percentage of the accuracy of the testing, their reports will not have any value if the reliability of the sample is endangered because of a poor concrete curing box. You need to know the exact temperature and humidity 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 specifications are:

  • In-field protected storage of concrete test specimens and dependable heating
  • Comes with comfort grip no-crush handles for easy carrying
  • No need to open to read or set temperature
  • No overheating
  • Digital temperature controller
  • Measuring resolution: 0.5°F
  • Control setpoint: 73°F
  • Ability to retain data
  • Xtreme technology uses an insulated lid and extra insulation on the siding
  • EZ-Clean top wipes clean and the lead-resistant channel drain makes it easy to empty any excess water without tilting the cooler
  • Low CO2 insulation for reduced carbon emissions from foam manufacturing
  • Manufactured in the United States

Correct Procedures for Concrete Curing Samples in the Field in Charlotte, NC

ASTM and ACI have stringent regulations for how to create samples and what conditions to store them under. To ensure you are observe regulations, 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 representative of the concrete poured on-site, made up of the same concrete as it was poured.
  • The technician must note a precise reading of the temperature of the ambient air and the sample.
  • You must conduct a slump test and an air test.
  • The samples must be stored in a concrete curing box where they will not be disturbed and never go below 60°F or above 80°F.

Once you have a concrete sample, you must maintain it in a concrete curing box until you can perform both on-site and laboratory tests in Charlotte, NC to take a reading of the concrete's compressive strength:

  • On-site Test: A Schmidt hammer fires a spring-loaded mass at the concrete in order to measure the value of the rebound.
  • 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 sample can hold up against.
