Why You Need Concrete Curing Testing in Montreal, QC

You need to be sure that your concrete is curing properly for the best outcome in your project. By using a Darwin Chambers concrete curing box in Montreal, QC, you can test to demonstrate that your concrete:

  • Won't have crevices, also called crazing
  • Has the appropriate strength
  • Has the needed water tightness
  • Is resistant to erosion
  • Has better volume stability
  • Is not susceptible to freezing and thawing

In order to properly verify the above and have accurate readings, you You need to know the precisely the conditions the specimens were stored at. For that reason, we design and manufacture every concrete curing box to have a control resolution of 1°F. Other features are:

  • On job site protected storage of concrete test specimens and dependable heating
  • Comes with comfort grip no-crush handles for easy carrying

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

ASTM and ACI have strict standards for how concrete samples are taken and stored in a concrete curing box. To ensure compliance, you must follow a certain procedure:

  • The procedure must be conducted by an ACI-Certified Grade 1 Concrete Field Technician.
  • The concrete cylinder must be representative of the concrete put in the slab, made up of two different samples from the middle of the concrete load.
  • The technician must record the temperature of the ambient air and the concrete.
  • You must conduct 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.

Once you have a concrete sample, you must maintain it in a concrete curing box until you can perform in-field tests and send samples to a lab in Montreal, QC to test 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 specimen can withstand.
