DEEP CURE is a non-membrane forming concrete curing compound that works in the concrete slab and not on the concrete surface.
The purpose of controlling the curing of concrete is to the loss of moisture during the time the concrete is gaining strength. The following are the benefits of curing concrete:
There are 4 main methods of curing concrete on site:
DEEP CURE ‘ticks’ all the boxes for being a fast, cost effective solution when curing concrete.
To the right is a sweat test done using DEEP CURE, to check the migration of water out of the concrete. Thursday – photo shows an area not sprayed with the DEEP CURE™ system. Sprayed 5.00pm after pouring the concrete slab in the morning. Friday (morning) – the darker area of the photo was covered with plastic, and left there over the weekend. Monday – this photo shows where the plastic was removed and the very dark (black) area is liquid water sitting on the surface. Water has sweated out of the untreated portion of the slab. The treated area has retained the water in the slab because the DEEP CURE™ has worked as a cure method.
|Typical use areas:||Key Features|
|1. Concrete footings and pavements 2. Precast concrete elements 3. Balconies, roads and runways 4. Buildings, bridges and infrastructure||1. Safe and easy and fast application 2. Can be walked on within 15-30 minutes 3. Cannot be damaged during the construction process 4. Does not leave a membrane that must be ground off prior to applying coatings, adhesives and toppings as required in the Flooring Code. 5. Assists in the prevention of efflorescence and concrete cancer 6. Enviro-friendly, odourless, non-toxic and waterbased 7. Assists in the adhesion of coatings and adhesives 8. Improves chemical resistance 9. Prevents moss and mildew growth|
