Benefits of Concrete Curing Testing in Madison, WI

Based on a report from ACI Committee 308, curing is "the process by which hydraulic-cement concrete matures and develops hardened properties over time." The success of your project will partially be dependent on how the concrete cures and your ability to accurately test it. By using a Darwin Chambers concrete curing box in Madison, WI, you can test to demonstrate that your concrete:

  • Won't have fissures, also called crazing
  • Has the correct durability
  • Has the appropriate water tightness
  • Is resistant to erosion
  • 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 Madison, WI lab the test is sent to will be accountable for a large portion of the accuracy of the testing, their reports will mean nothing if the reliability of the sample is put at risk because of a poor concrete curing box. You need to know the exact conditions under which the samples were kept. That's why we design and manufacture every concrete curing box to have a control resolution of 1°F. Other aspects are:

  • In-field protected storage of concrete test specimens and dependable heating
  • Comes with comfort grip no-crush handles for easy transport
  • No need to open to read or set temperature
  • No overheating
  • Digital controls
  • Measuring resolution: 0.5°F
  • Control setpoint: 73°F
  • Data retention: Yes
  • 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 Madison, WI

ASTM and ACI have stringent instructions for how to make samples and what humidity and temperature to store them at. To ensure compliance, you must follow a certain procedure:

  • The procedure must be carried out by an ACI-Certified Grade 1 Concrete Field Technician.
  • The concrete cylinder must be characteristic of the concrete poured on-site, made up of at least two samples.
  • The technician must note a precise reading of the temperature of the ambient air and the specimen.
  • The worker must run a slump test and an air test.
  • The samples must be kept in a concrete curing box where they will not be perturbed and are kept within 60°F and 80°F at all times.

After the slump and air tests, you must conduct both in-field and laboratory tests in Madison, WI 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: 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 withstand.
