Benefits of Concrete Curing Testing in Toronto, ON

Based on a report from 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 keeping your samples in a Darwin Chambers concrete curing box in Toronto, ON, you can test to make sure that your concrete:

  • Won't have crevices, technically called crazing
  • Has the correct strength
  • Has the appropriate water tightness
  • Is resistant to wearing down
  • Has better volume stability
  • Is impervious to freezing and thawing

In order to properly verify the above and have accurate tests, you You need to know the precisely the conditions 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 features include:

  • On job site protected storage of concrete test specimens and reliable heating

Correct Procedures for Concrete Curing Samples in the Field in Toronto, ON

ASTM and ACI have strict standards for how concrete samples are taken and stored in a concrete curing box. To ensure compliance, you must take the following steps:

  • The procedure must be conducted by an ACI-Certified Grade 1 Concrete Field Technician.
  • The concrete cylinder must be representative of the concrete put in the slab, made up of the same concrete as it was poured.
  • The technician must record the temperature of the ambient air and the sample.
  • 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 agitated and cannot exceed 80°F or go below 60°F.

Once you have a concrete sample, you must maintain it in a concrete curing box until you can carry out both on-site and laboratory tests in Toronto, ON to measure the concrete's compressive strength:

  • On-site Test: A small device, known as a Schmidt hammer, measures the rebound of a spring-loaded mass that is shot against the surface of the concrete.
  • Laboratory Test: In a lab, the concrete will be placed in a device that places increasing amounts of pressure on each end of the concrete until it cracks or breaks.
