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.
