Concrete Curing Services in Sydney & NSW

At Impact Concrete Cutting, we specialise in the critical process of concrete curing, which is essential for ensuring the durability, strength, and longevity of concrete structures. Utilising advanced techniques, we protect fresh concrete from evaporation and temperature extremes that can adversely affect cement hydration.

What is Concrete Curing?

Concrete curing is a vital process where a chemical curing compound or other methods are applied to finished concrete. This process holds in moisture and allows the concrete to dry at an even temperature, which is crucial for the concrete’s strength and durability. It’s typically best applied within the first 24 hours after the concrete slab has been finished.

How Long Does Concrete Take to Cure?

The entire curing period for concrete takes about a month. However, concrete will be ready for use sooner, depending on factors like weather, concrete mix, and placement techniques. 

Generally:

  • In 24 to 48 hours, forms can be removed, and people can walk on the surface.
  • After 7 days, the concrete can sustain traffic from vehicles and equipment.
  • By 28 days, the concrete should be fully cured.

Our Concrete Curing Approach

Impact Concrete Cutting’s approach to concrete curing involves several methods tailored to the specific needs of each project. These include:

Water-Based Curing Compound

This approach involves applying a high-pressure spray of a water-based curing compound that conforms to AS3799 standards.

Moist Curing

Regularly wetting the concrete slab to ensure that moisture evaporates slowly, thereby preventing cracks and shrinkage.

Covering New Concrete

Using polyethylene sheeting or concrete curing insulating blankets to prevent moisture from evaporating too quickly.

We also employ various other methods depending on the site and construction method, such as formwork curing, membrane curing, and natural curing for exposed concrete.
