curing

[′kyu̇r·iŋ]
(chemical engineering)
A process in which polymers or oligomers are chemically cross-linked to form polymer networks.
(civil engineering)
A process for bringing freshly placed concrete to required strength and quality by maintaining the humidity and temperature at specified levels for a given period of time. Also known as seasoning.
(science and technology)
Any one of various processes whereby a product is preserved, perfected, or readied for use.

curing

Maintaining the humidity and temperature of freshly placed concrete during some definite period following placing, casting, or finishing to assure satisfactory hydration of the cementitious materials and proper hardening of the concrete.

The compositions give good solvent- and water-resistance, are waterborne- and solventborne-modified polyolefin compositions containing unsaturated pendant groups, such as reaction product of functionalized polyolefins with ethylenically unsaturated compounds having functional groups reactive with functional groups of polyolefins, and also contain photoinitiator and optionally, other ethylenically unsaturated crosslinking agents, for UV and EB curing.
It is recognized that EB curing has great advantages in comparison with UV curing for formulating materials without using photoinitiators.
