SUNPOLICURE W: Water-based curing compound
  • Used as a concrete or mortar curing compound
  • It eliminates/replaces the usual water-curing process
  • Conforms to ASTM C 309-74
  • Works during a shortage of normal water or salt-free water
  • Shortage of labour
  • Controls additional costs involved in curing for the full specified period
  • Wet the de-shuttered concrete thoroughly with water
  • Apply SUNPOLICURE W by brush, hand-operated or powered spray gun
  • Apply it as soon as the concrete surface turns matty
  • The film SUNPOLICURE W will gradually disappear through traffic and weathering
SUNPOLICURE I: Internal curing admixture
  • Use in concrete, shotcrete, or mortar to minimize water evaporation during curing
  • Suitable for areas with water scarcity
  • SUNPOLICURE I reduce water curing time.
  • Enhances concrete impermeability.
  • Decreases plastic shrinkage and long-term drying shrinkage.
  • Improves workability and pumpability of concrete when used with superplasticizer.
  • Prevents water evaporation from fresh concrete or mortar.
  • Enhances hydration of all cement types.
  • SUNPOLICURE I is a ready-to-use liquid added to gauging water and mixed into concrete.
  • Stir it well before use.
  • Avoid adding SUNPOLICURE I directly to dry aggregates or cement.
  • It can be added using regular admixture dispensers.
SUNPOLICURE A: Clear and pigmented acrylic curing compound
  • All general concrete applications such as RCC slabs, RCC beams, and columns
  • High-rise buildings, airport runways, roads, bridge works, etc
  • Overcomes water scarcity, salt contamination, labour shortage, and difficult-to-reach areas.
  • It enhances moisture retention and prevents rapid evaporation from concrete surfaces.
  • Light-reflective grades reduce solar temperature gain.
  • Spray application reduces labour costs and eliminates the need for other curing methods.
  • Functions as a sealer and dust-proofer.
  • Non-degrading, no removal needed.
  • Stir pigmented grades before use for even dispersion of pigment.
  • Thoroughly wet de-shuttered concrete with water.
  • Newly placed concrete should be sound, properly finished, and slightly damp for SUNPOLICURE A application.
  • Remove dirt, dust, oil, grease, asphalt, and foreign matter.
  • Ensure the entire surface is wetted to compensate for evaporation losses.
  • Apply SUNPOLICURE A using a powered spray-gun once the concrete surface turns matte.
  • A continuous film of SUNPOLICURE A will gradually form.
  • It does not need to be removed before applying another coating on the concrete surface.
What is the new technology for curing concrete?

One innovative technology for curing concrete is the use of advanced curing compounds, such as colloidal silica or graphene-based materials. These compounds provide efficient moisture retention, enhance concrete strength, and accelerate curing processes. Additionally, technologies like self-healing concrete, incorporating bacteria or capsules to repair cracks autonomously, represent cutting-edge advancements in the concrete industry.

What are the 3 methods of curing concrete?

Three common methods of curing concrete are wet curing, membrane curing, and curing compounds. Wet curing involves keeping the concrete surface consistently moist, while membrane curing uses a covering, such as wet burlap or polyethylene sheets, to retain moisture. Curing compounds are liquid formulations sprayed on the concrete, forming a protective film to prevent water evaporation. Proper curing enhances concrete strength, and durability, and reduces cracking, ensuring optimal long-term performance.

What is the maximum day of curing Concrete?

While concrete technically continues gaining strength indefinitely, for practical purposes, 28 days is considered the “maximum” or full cure period. After this, it reaches roughly 95% of its ultimate strength and is ready for most uses. However, specific curing times can vary based on factors like temperature and cement type.

How long does it take for 4 inch concrete to cure?
Though 4-inch concrete reaches basic walkability in 24-48 hours, it needs more time to truly mature. For most uses, like vehicle traffic or heavy furniture, aim for 7-10 days. For peak strength, the golden rule is 28 days – it’s like baking bread; patience yields the best results! Remember, temperature and humidity can shorten or lengthen these times, so monitor your specific project closely.
What slows concrete curing?
Several factors can slow concrete curing, including low temperatures, inadequate moisture, improper mix proportions, and the presence of certain admixtures. Insufficient curing time or premature removal of forms can also impede the curing process, leading to reduced strength and durability of the concrete.
