Advantages to Concrete Curing Testing in Oakland, CA

According to a report from ACI Committee 308, curing refers to "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 Oakland, CA, you can test to establish that your concrete:

  • Won't degrade and have crevices, also referred to as crazing
  • Has the necessary 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 exact conditions under which the samples were kept. For that reason, we design and manufacture every concrete curing box to have a control resolution of 1°F. Other features are:

  • In-field protected storage of concrete test specimens and dependable heating
  • Comes with comfort grip no-crush handles for easy transport
  • Exterior controls and readings so the box can remain closed
  • 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 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
  • Eco-friendly manufacturing because of reduced carbon emissions
  • Produced in the USA

How to Take Concrete Curing Samples in the Field in Oakland, CA

ASTM and ACI have strict standards for how to create samples and store them. 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 characteristic of the concrete put in the slab, made up of the same concrete as it was poured.
  • The technician must make not of the temperature of the ambient air and the specimen.
  • The worker must perform 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 cylinder, you must maintain it in a concrete curing box until you can carry out both in-field and laboratory tests in Oakland, CA to measure the concrete's compressive strength:

  • On-site 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.
