Curing Compound

Definition - What does Curing Compound mean?

A curing compound is a liquid substance that is added as a surface coating on freshly installed concrete. Curing compounds are used to reduce the loss of water or heat in order to create ideal conditions that are favourable to the concrete formation.

Corrosionpedia explains Curing Compound

Moisture content and environmental temperature are vital to the setting of concrete. Due to cement being a hydraulic substance, water allows it to gain strength. Therefore, too much or too little water present during the setting of concrete can be detrimental. Curing compounds are used to facilitate such moisture precision levels and corresponding temperature rates.
