Why You Need Concrete Curing Testing in Denver, CO

According to a a definition offered by ACI Committee 308, curing is "the process by which hydraulic-cement concrete matures and develops hardened properties over time." You need to be confident that your concrete is curing correctly for the best outcome in your project. By keeping your samples in a Darwin Chambers concrete curing box in Denver, CO, you can test to establish that your concrete:

  • Won't have cracks, technically called crazing
  • Has the appropriate durability
  • Has the needed water tightness
  • Is resistant to erosion
  • Has better volume stability
  • Is resistant to freezing and thawing

While the people who prepare the concrete test cylinders and the Denver, CO lab the test is sent to will be responsible for a substantial percentage of the accuracy of the testing, their reports will mean nothing if the reliability of the sample is endangered because of a poor concrete curing box. You need to know the precisely the temperature and humidity the samples were stored at. For that reason, every Darwin Chambers portable concrete curing box has a control resolution of 1°F.

Correct Procedures for Concrete Curing Samples in the Field in Denver, CO

ASTM and ACI have stringent instructions for how concrete samples are taken and stored in a concrete curing box. To ensure you are following guidelines, you must follow a specific procedure:

  • The concrete must be made, cured, and tested by an ACI-Certified Grade 1 Concrete Field Technician.
  • The concrete cylinder must be a "representative sample," made up of at least two samples.
  • The technician must take a precise reading of the temperature of the ambient air and the sample.
  • You must perform a slump test and an air test.
  • The cylinders must be kept in a concrete curing box where they are kept at a fixed temperature range between 60°F and 80°F.

Once you have a concrete cylinder, you must keep it well-preserved in a concrete curing box until you can carry out both on-site and laboratory tests in Denver, CO to take a reading of the concrete's compressive strength:

  • In-Field 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 withstand.
