In other words, the semi-evaporable and non-evaporable water continues to be made available for hydration until it is consumed or an equilibrium state is achieved when SCP products are used. The materials, processes, quality control measures, and inspections described in this document should be tested, monitored, or performed as applicable only by individuals holding the appropriate ACI certifications or equivalent.
The reaction products formed fill capillaries and shut down liquid water transmission. Figure 1 above shows the percentage of strength gain qci with various curing methods.
These alternative methods are not necessarily equal in effectiveness, cost, effect on project schedule, or impact on other aspects of the project.
ACI 308.1-11 Specifications for Curing Concrete
The appropriate duration of curing will depend on the property that is the slowest to develop. Figure 4 shows the performance of treated concrete in water permeability testing in a hydrostatic pressure environment, another reason curing is often called out. Because SCP products penetrate into the concrete, they do not form a surface membrane.
Compressive strength development is the primary reason curing of concrete is required, and SCP products help achieve even better performance that moist-cured concrete, long held as the gold standard of curing concrete.

Additionally, SCP products become a permanent part of the concrete while membranes and water ponding are temporary. This action makes SCP products an effective waterproofing agent, even under hydrostatic pressure. The full and complete returned product will be accepted if returned within 60 days of receipt and in salable condition.
Compressive Strength as a Function of Age for a Variety of Curing Conditions ACI R According to ACI R, when determining the duration of curing, consideration should be given to the concrete properties that are desired in addition to compressive strength sci. February 26, – 1: Guide for Specifying Underground Shotcrete. This specification has default settings that may or may not be applicable to a specific project.
Figure 2 shows the performance of concrete treated with SCP products versus air and moist cured concrete. While membranes degrade over time, and water ponding methods cannot be continued indefinitely, the use of SCP products provides a continuous curing environment.
Concrete — Drying vs. Concrete Cracking October 30, – Choose Product Language English. Errata are not included for collections or sets of documents such as the ACI 380.1. Until those standards are available, and ACI ASTM C membrane-forming curing compounds were developed as a solution to the need for a time-saving alternative to water ponding.
This specification addresses curing methods applied zci placement of concrete and does not apply to internal curing use of saturated lightweight aggregate or other materials to provide supplemental water or to accelerated curing heat curing. At least two ASTM C09 subcommittees are currently working on standards to better evaluate the performance of colloidal silica.
July 30, – 2: Curing August 27, – 4: For a listing of and access to all product errata, visit the Errata page.
This document provides requirements for alternative methods for curing concrete. Figure 3 below shows the performance of treated concrete tested for drying shrinkage, another important reason curing is required, demonstrating improvements over moist-cured control samples.
An important consideration when evaluating products for use with concrete is that ASTM develops standards to generate performance numbers while ACI writes the guides and specifications that are used to put the numbers generated xci practice. The objective of curing is to 3081. the concrete to meet performance parameters; SCP products produce those performance parameters at a rate equal to or better than moist curing.
Any applicable errata are included with individual documents at the time of purchase.
According qci ACI R, when determining the duration of curing, consideration should be given to the concrete properties that are desired in addition to compressive strength development. The action works in the other direction as well, holding in water that would normally evaporate at early ages.
