The success of your project will partially be dependent on how the concrete cures and your ability to accurately test it. By storing your samples in a Darwin Chambers concrete curing box in Los Angeles, CA, you can test to establish that your concrete: Won't degrade and have fissures, also known as crazing Has the required durability Has the required water tightness Is not susceptible to abrasion Is impervious to shrinkage, which causes cracks Is not susceptible to freezing and thawing While the workers who prepare the concrete test cylinders and the Los Angeles, CA lab the test is sent to will be accountable for a considerable part of the accuracy of the testing, their reports will not be accurate if the reliability of the sample is endangered because the concrete was not stored correctly. You need to know the exact temperature and humidity under which the samples were kept. That's why every Darwin Chambers portable concrete curing box has a control resolution of 1°F.

To ensure compliance, you must follow a certain procedure: 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 two different samples from the middle of the concrete load. The technician must take a precise reading of the temperature of the ambient air and the sample. You must carry out a slump test and an air test. The specimens must be stored in a concrete curing box where they are kept at a fixed temperature range between 60°F and 80°F. In addition to the slump and air tests, you must carry out in-field tests and send samples to a lab in Los Angeles, CA to take a reading of the concrete's compressive strength: In-Field Test: A small device, known as a Schmidt hammer, measures the rebound of a spring-loaded mass that is shot against the surface of the concrete. 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 concrete can hold up against.
