The importance of curing concrete.
Concrete sets and hardens as a result of a chemical reaction between cementitious materials and water in a process called hydration.
Curing is the action of maintaining satisfactory temperature and moisture conditions in concrete long enough for hydration to develop the desired concrete properties. The potential strength and durability of concrete will only be fully developed if concrete is properly cured.
Increase hydration with internal curing.
Internal curing supplies water throughout freshly placed concrete using reservoirs that readily release water as needed for hydration or to replace moisture lost through evaporation.
