    90 Minutes / 90 Degrees and Curing.

    Vital aspects at the construction site,

    often misunderstood and incorrectly applied!

     
    90 Minutes and 90 Degrees

    The ASTM specification for ready mixed concrete lists 90 minutes and 90 degrees F as limits for the delivery time and temperature.  Are these limits relics of a bygone era?  Can concrete be successfully transported, placed and finished beyond these limits?

    Tarek Khan, will discuss changes in materials and technology that affect delivery time and temperature. 

    Concrete Curing: Process or Product?

    The concept of curing concrete has become widely misunderstood or all together forgotten. Curing is the final and arguably the most important step in the placement of concrete. What is it and how does it happen? Jeffrey Mosley, of SINAK Corporation, will define curing and identify the methods to ensure it is done properly.
