After lay and finish is completed, and bleed water has evaporated, cover the concrete with insulated curing blankets to stabilize at the constant optimal temperature. After about 72 hours, remove the thermal concrete blankets and allow the slats to air dry.
How Long to Leave Concrete Blankets On?
Concrete blankets are commonly used to protect freshly poured concrete from the elements. They provide insulation, keeping the concrete warm and allowing it to cure properly. But how long should they be left on? That depends on a few factors.
The most important factor is the weather. If it’s cold and wet, the blankets should be left on for a longer period of time. In general, blankets should be left on for at least a week, but they can be left on for up to a month, depending on the weather and the type of concrete used.
It’s also important to check the concrete periodically to make sure it’s curing properly. If the concrete is not curing properly, the blankets should be left on for a longer period of time.
When the concrete has cured, the blankets should be removed. If the blankets are left on for too long, they could trap moisture and cause the concrete to crack or break down.
When removing the blankets, it’s important to be careful not to damage the surface of the concrete. If the blankets are removed too quickly, they can cause the concrete to chip or crack.
If the blankets are left on for too long,
