Why Insulated Concrete Curing Blankets?
ALCO Covers offers one-time usage and reusable wet concrete curing blankets depending on what you need. As endorsed by the American Concrete Institute (ACI), these products conserve ideal moisture content during the concrete curing process. Cracking, Dusting, Scaling and crazing on curing process are caused due to the absence or insufficient amount of moisture. The standards of AASHTO specification M-171 for reflection are met by all ALCO products.
The ALCO product which is not reusable also has lighter weight indoor/outdoor wet curing blanket, this product is made to hold moisture for about seven days and give steady hydration. The fact that it is not reusable makes it easy for cross-contamination between slabs to be eradicated. Insulated curing blanket constitutes an un-pigmented, non-woven polypropylene material responsible for preserving moisture. A white polyethylene membrane which takes charge to make sure heat is reduced and evaporation process are minimized. A roll of is about 8 x 200 with a weight estimated to be 54lbs.
It is the first patented concrete curing blanket. This concrete curing blanket can withhold water for long and helps to maintain moisture level during the concrete curing process. This reusable concrete is manufactured with a synthetic fabric in other to evade concrete straining that is common in other covers. The curing blanket is available for immediate shipment in different stock sizes.
What Are The Constituents Of Insulated Concrete Curing?
Abrasion-resistant vinyl adhesive and a layer of closed cell insulations are the two main constituents of an insulated concrete curing blankets. These materials are responsible for guard against water. The strength, prevention of tears and absorption of moisture in the blanket is gotten due to the heat welded of the seams during manufacturing. No matter the size of the precast steel the blanket comes in various sizes that will fit in any of the precast steel bed.
Why Tarps In Concrete Curing?
Concrete curing blankets are now built with tarps with the intentions of having a long-lasting concrete curing blankets. These tarps are built with the use of rigid woven polyethylene materials for perfect insulation and longevity. Tarps are manufactured with flexible foam which guarantees RV and is necessary for a concrete work on any job site.
- Very strong and hydrophobic
- The micro-foam guarantees more performance.
- The poly outer shell is hard and durable.
- The deep black on the peripheral provides maximum temperature gain from solar heat and to help the interior insulation layers maximize R values; they’re silver on the bottom.
Tarps offer a variety of standard sizes of concrete curing blankets, from 12-mil, 1/2-inch closed cell measuring 3 x 25 feet to 12-mil, to 1/4-inch closed cell blankets that are 12 x 25 feet. We are a custom manufacturer of covers, tarps and insulated curing blankets, we produce custom concrete curing blankets of various sizes for any project you want to delve into regardless of its difficulty.
