Fresh concrete

Aug 24, 2013· Fresh concrete 1 Definition of fresh concrete: Introduction: The potential strength and durability of concrete of a given mix proportion is very dependent on the degree of its compaction It is vital, therefore, that the consistency of the mix be such that the concrete can be transported, placed, and finished sufficiently early enough to attain the expected strength and durability...

What Happens When Concrete Freezes?

If concrete freezes while it is still fresh or before it has developed sufficient strength to resist the expansive forces associated with the freezing water, ice formation results in the disruption of the cement paste matrix causing an irreparable loss in strength Early freezing can result in a reduction of up to 50 percent in the ultimate ....

Allow Proper Time to Water Cure

After concrete is placed, the concrete increases in strength very quickly for a period of 3-7 days Concrete which is moist cured for 7 days is about 50% stronger than uncured concrete Read about properly curing concrete slabs Water curing can be done after the slab pour by building dams with soil around the house and flooding the slab...
