Curing of concrete

Curing of concrete

The maintenance of an appropriate humidity and temperature in freshly placed concrete to ensure the satisfactory hydration of the cement, and proper hardening of the concrete. In cold weather it may be necessary to provide a source of heat, such as a salamander or electric heater.
