Benefits of Concrete Curing Testing in Seattle, WA

Based on a report from ACI Committee 308, curing refers to "the process by which hydraulic-cement concrete matures and develops hardened properties over time." You need to be sure that your concrete is curing properly for the best results in your project. By using a Darwin Chambers concrete curing box in Seattle, WA, you can test to check that your concrete:

  • Won't develop crevices, technically called crazing
  • Has the necessary strength
  • Has the needed water tightness
  • Is not susceptible to erosion
  • Is not susceptible to shrinkage, which causes cracks
  • Is impervious to freezing and thawing

In order to properly verify the above and have accurate readings, you You need to know the exact temperature and humidity under which the specimens were kept. For that reason, we design and manufacture every concrete curing box to have a control resolution of 1°F. Other aspects include:

  • On job site protected storage of concrete test specimens and reliable heating
  • Comes with comfort grip no-crush handles for easy transport
  • Exterior controls and readings so the box can remain closed
  • The plate is thermally protected from overheating
  • Digital controls
  • Reading resolution: 0.5°F
  • Control setpoint: 73°F
  • Data storage
  • Xtreme technology uses an insulated lid and extra insulation on the interior
  • 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

Correct Procedures for Concrete Curing Samples in the Field in Seattle, WA

ASTM and ACI have stringent standards for how to produce samples and what conditions to store them under. To make sure you are following guidelines, you must follow a specific procedure:

  • The concrete must be made, cured, and tested by an ACI-Certified Grade 1 Concrete Field Technician.
  • The concrete cylinder must be a "representative sample," made up of the same concrete as it was poured.
  • The technician must take a precise reading of the temperature of the ambient air and the concrete.
  • The worker must conduct a slump test and an air test.
  • The specimens must be kept in a concrete curing box where they will not be disturbed and are kept within 60°F and 80°F at all times.

Once you have a concrete sample, you must maintain it in a concrete curing box until you can conduct in-field tests and send samples to a lab in Seattle, WA to take a reading of 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 hold up against.
