Hot Weather Concreting: Understand the Risks

 Hot weather concreting is a risk. The combination of high temperatures, wind and low humidity create an unfavourable environment for proper curing. By placing concrete in the heat you run the risk of cracking, crazing, surface crusting and lower 28-day strengths....

Understanding Relative Humidity in Concrete

Relative humidity (RH) is often mistaken for moisture; however, these are two completely separate terms. Moisture content represents the amount of water in liquid form, while humidity levels represent the amount of water in vapor form. Relative humidity is defined as...

What Is Concrete Maturity?

Concrete maturity is an index value that represents the progression of concrete curing. It is based on an equation that takes into account concrete temperature, time, and strength gain. Concrete maturity is an accurate way to determine real-time strength values of...
