Advantages to Concrete Curing Testing in Toronto, ON

Based on a a definition offered by ACI Committee 308, curing is "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 Toronto, ON, you can test to establish that your concrete:

  • Won't have fissures, also referred to as crazing
  • Has the needed durability
  • Has the needed water tightness
  • Is not susceptible to abrasion
  • Is resistant to shrinkage, which causes cracks
  • Is not susceptible to freezing and thawing

While the workers who prepare the concrete test cylinders and the Toronto, ON lab the test is sent to will be accountable for a large part of the accuracy of the testing, their readings will not have any value if the reliability of the sample is put at risk because the concrete was not stored correctly. You need to know the exact temperature and humidity under which the samples were kept. For that reason, every Darwin Chambers portable concrete curing box has a control resolution of 1°F. Other specifications include:

  • In-field protected storage of concrete test specimens and dependable heating
  • Comes with comfort grip no-crush handles for easy carrying
  • 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 in the walls
  • 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 Toronto, ON

ASTM and ACI have strict instructions for how to create samples and what conditions to store them under. To ensure compliance, 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 a "representative sample," made up of two different samples from the middle of the concrete load.
  • The technician must note an accurate reading of the temperature of the ambient air and the specimen.
  • You must carry out a slump test and an air test.
  • The specimens must be kept in a concrete curing box where they are kept at a fixed temperature range between 60°F and 80°F.

In addition to the slump and air tests, you must perform both on-site and laboratory tests in Toronto, ON to test the concrete's compressive strength:

  • On-site Test: A small device, known as a Schmidt hammer, fires a spring-loaded mass with a defined energy against the surface and reads how elastic or strong the concrete is.
  • 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 concrete can withstand.
