Powerblanket is the Ultimate Heating Solution for Cold Weather Concrete Curing
Those in the concrete industry know that
cold weather can have detrimental effects on the concrete curing process. In the winter, concrete cures more slowly, unless of course, the fresh concrete is protected and perhaps heated externally to create an environment for the concrete to cure faster.

Concrete hardens, gains strength, and attains desirable properties at a rate proportional to the temperature at which it is cured. The Cold Weather Concreting Committee (ACI 306) defines cold weather as 'when the air temperature has fallen to, or is expected to fall below 40 ºF (4.5 ºC)'.


Why Choose Powerblanket Concrete Curing Blankets?

Curing In-Place Concrete
What is Curing?
Curing is the maintaining of an adequate moisture content and temperature in concrete at early ages so that it can develop properties the mixture was designed to achieve. Curing begins immediately after placement and finishing so that the concrete may develop the desired strength and durability.

Temperature is an important factor in proper curing since the rate of hydration and therefore, strength development is faster at a higher temperatures. Generally, concrete temperatures should be maintained above 50 degree Fahrenheit (10 degree Celsius) for an adequate rate of strength development. Further a uniform temperature should be maintained through the concrete section while it is gaining strength to avoid thermal cracking.
