How the concrete cures and the accuracy of the tests is vital to the success of your project.

  • Won't have cracks, also called crazing
  • Has the necessary strength

  • Is impervious to abrasion
  • Has better volume stability
  • Is impervious 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 samples were stored at. For that reason, 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
