Heat Production in Standard Concrete


Slab curl due to Phase 1 Heat of Hydration in Standard Concrete

Slab Curl

Changes in slab dimensions that lead to curling are most often related to moisture and temperature gradients in the slab. The largest change comes from phase 1 heat of hydration.


Cool-Crete cures at ambient temperatures. The image below is a 33 yard, 8" slab with no saw cuts, and no cracks.
