Chapter 4 - Producing Silica-Fume Concrete

Previous Next
Here, curing compound is being applied to silica-fume concrete in a parking structure shortly after brooming. In many cases, the use of curing compound is the preliminary curing method; it is intended to protect the concrete until it gains enough strength to allow placing wet curing materials on the deck without marring the surface. On this particular project, wet burlap and plastic sheeting were used for the final curing.
