Key Benefits of Fleximake Concrete Curing Blankets
|Type No||Thickness(mm)||Width(m)||Thermal Resistance(Approx.)|
|R-Value(SI units)(Km2/W)||R-Value(Imperial units)(°F.ft2.h/BTU)||R per Inch(Imperial units)(°F.ft2.h/BTU/in)|
If you require higher R-values, it is possible to apply multiple layers of our standard range insulated concrete curing blankets. Example: You can achieve insulation R Value (SI unit) of approx. R0.96 (or approx. (Imperial units) R5.45) by applying 3 layers of standard 12mm insulated blankets We have tested our insulated concrete curing blankets at a NATA accredited Australian testing laboratory. Type test report is available upon request.

Why you need Insulated Concrete Curing Blankets
To Shorten Concrete Curing (Setting) Time
Setting or curing of concrete is a chemical process and as in many chemical reactions the rate is temperature dependent. The lower the temperature, the slower is the process of setting of concrete. Even relatively mild cold weather can slow concrete curing. At 23°C you might be might be able to safely strip the formwork from concrete job in 4 days. But when temperature reduces down to 10°C, the same concrete job may take 8 days to reach a strength level that allows you to strip the formwork. The curing time would be much longer for temperatures below10°C. Following graphs show setting time of concrete at different temperatures for two mixes of concrete.
