Concrete Curing

  • Solving Moisture Issues with Rapid Drying Concrete

    1 LU

    This course will discuss moisture in concrete slabs and solutions to end slab moisture issues such as flooring failures, mold, warping or curling, and excessive drying times. One solution to these moisture related problems is utilizing a rapid drying concrete. Rapid Drying Concrete is a ready-mix concrete solution for preventing moisture-related floor covering failures, an industry-wide problem that costs millions of dollars annually in damage, downtime, repair and replacement. Take the course.

  • Concrete Basics: Curing and Sealing

    1 LU LU

    There are many factors that affect the long term durability of concrete. Some of these are: mix design, environmental conditions, structural loading and design, quality of the raw materials used in the concrete and mixing, placing and curing. This presentation will explain the basics of cement hydration, and introduce the various curing methods and floor treatments available. In addition, this presentation will help the specifying agency and/or end user identify the proper materials and products needed for the project. Take the course.
