Advantages to Concrete Curing Testing in Montreal, QC

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 will go a long way in the success of your project. By using a Darwin Chambers concrete curing box in Montreal, QC, you can test to demonstrate that your concrete:

  • Won't have cracks, technically referred to as crazing
  • Has the required strength
  • Has the appropriate water tightness
  • Is impervious to wearing down
  • Is resistant to shrinkage, which causes cracks
  • Is not susceptible to freezing and thawing

In order to properly verify the above and have accurate tests, you You need to know the precisely the temperature and humidity the specimens were stored at. That's why we design and manufacture every concrete curing box to have a control resolution of 1°F. Other specifications include:

  • On job site protected storage of concrete test specimens and reliable heating
  • Comes with comfort grip no-crush handles for easy transport
  • No need to open to see temperature reading or set point of thermostat
  • No overheating
  • Digital controls
  • Measuring resolution: 0.5°F
  • Control setpoint: 73°F
  • Ability to retain data
  • Xtreme technology uses an insulated lid and extra insulation in the walls
  • 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
  • Produced in the USA

How to Take Concrete Curing Samples in the Field in Montreal, QC

ASTM and ACI have strict standards for how to create samples and store them. To ensure you are observe regulations, 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 put in the slab, made up of at least two samples.
  • The technician must take an accurate reading of the temperature of the ambient air and the specimen.
  • The worker must carry out a slump test and an air test.
  • The cylinders must be stored in a concrete curing box where they are kept at a fixed temperature range between 60°F and 80°F.

After the slump and air tests, you must perform in-field tests and send samples to a lab in Montreal, QC to take a reading of the concrete's compressive strength:

  • On-site 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 specimen can hold up against.
