Why You Need Concrete Curing Testing in Portland, OR

Based on 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." 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 Portland, OR, you can test to demonstrate that your concrete:

  • Won't degrade and have cracks, also known as crazing
  • Has the required strength
  • Has the correct water tightness
  • Is resistant to wearing down
  • Has better volume stability
  • Is not susceptible to freezing and thawing

While the experts who prepare the concrete test cylinders and the Portland, OR lab the test is sent to will be accountable for a large percentage of the accuracy of the testing, their work will be for naught if the reliability of the sample is put at risk because the concrete was kept at a temperature and humidity that did not adhere to regulations. 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 are:

  • On job site 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
  • Data storage
  • 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 through reduced carbon emissions
  • Made in the USA

How to Take Concrete Curing Samples in the Field in Portland, OR

ASTM and ACI have stringent standards for how concrete samples are taken and stored in a concrete curing box. To ensure you are observe guidelines, 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 characteristic of the concrete poured on-site, made up of at least two samples.
  • The technician must take an accurate reading of the temperature of the ambient air and the specimen.
  • You must perform a slump test and an air test.
  • The specimens must be stored in a concrete curing box where they will not be disturbed and never go below 60°F or above 80°F.

Once you have a concrete cylinder, you must keep it well-preserved in a concrete curing box until you can perform in-field tests and send samples to a lab in Portland, OR to take a reading of 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 cylinder can withstand.
