Why You Need Concrete Curing Testing in Vancouver, BC

  • Won't have cracks, also referred to as crazing
  • Has the required strength
  • Has the correct water tightness
  • Is resistant to abrasion
  • Has better volume stability
  • Is resistant to freezing and thawing

In order to properly verify the above and have accurate tests, you You need to know the exact temperature and humidity under which the samples were kept. That's why we design and manufacture every concrete curing box to have a control resolution of 1°F. Other features are:

  • In-field protected storage of concrete test specimens and reliable heating
  • Comes with comfort grip no-crush handles for easy carrying

Correct Procedures for Concrete Curing Samples in the Field in Vancouver, BC

ASTM and ACI have stringent standards for how to create samples and what humidity and temperature to store them at. To ensure compliance, 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 two different samples from the middle of the concrete load.
  • The technician must record the temperature of the ambient air and the specimen.
  • You must carry out a slump test and an air test.
  • The specimens must be placed 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 keep it well-preserved in a concrete curing box until you can perform both in-field and laboratory tests in Vancouver, BC 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 sample can hold up against.
