Concrete Cure and Seal
Unlike cures, cure & seals are the ‘long distance runner’. They are formulated to last longer and not break down as quickly as the cures. Different resins are used to accomplish this. Applied to the fresh concrete immediately after the disappearance of the surface water sheen.
Cold Weather "Alert"
Colder weather does not lessen the importance of proper curing techniques and materials. Cold weather requires the same, if not more, urgency for curing than in the summertime. “Even when the relative humidity of the outdoor air is high, at low temperatures this translates to very low quantities of water vapor. Cold air is therefore generally dry, even at high humidity “. Remember, it is in the cold weather that you use the lip balm to prevent chapped lips….cold weather & low humidity dries lips.
Concrete, in the cold weather and low humidity, also undergoes a loss of moisture & thus the need for proper curing techniques to prevent the loss of water that could cause distress, deterioration and esthetic problems.
