Title: Effect of Time of Application of Sealing Compund on the Quality of Concrete

Abstract:Laboratory experiments with mortar specimens indicate an advantage for applying curing compund to unformed concrete at approximately the time of set. Loss of mixing water from evaporation up to this point is shown to be beneficial to strength and brasion resistance. Subsequent loss is shown to be detremental. The benefit from loss of water before set appears to be directly related to the decrease in water-cement ratio.
