CONCRETE CURING BLANKETS

Powerblanket heated concrete curing blankets offer a manageable and realistic method for curing concrete in cold and adverse weather conditions. Cold weather slows down concrete cure time and can significantly hold up construction projects. Powerblanket cures concrete 2.8 times faster than a typical insulated blanket or tarp and properly maintains moisture throughout the hydrating process. These curing blankets are easily transported and installed and maintain ACI compliance for cold-weather concreting.

Welcome to the insulated concrete blanket that is an ideal solution for maintaining optimum concrete cure time during cold winter conditions. Blankets come in various lengths and sizes, as well as custom options to meet the needs of any project.

Massman Construction & Powerblanket Concrete Blankets

While constructing Kansas City’s Christopher S. Bond Bridge, Massman Construction encountered a mid-winter dilemma. The support beam beneath the bridge, which formed the bottom of the gap in the precast concrete panels, was constantly exposed to below 0⁰F (-18⁰C). Traditional heating solutions would not work in this case. Massman turned to Powerblanket heavy duty curing blankets for consistent temperature control during the curing process.

“We didn’t have the time to wait out the winter for the temperatures to become more moderate. The Powerblanket concrete heating blankets certainly played an important role in keeping us on schedule and not having to postpone the pour on an important Kansas City bridge.”
Dale Helming
Project Manager, Massman Construction
“[Powerblanket] was the best cold-weather concrete heating and curing system we have worked with.”
Vern Adkins
Carpenter Foreman, Walsh Construction
“We gave the engineers at Powerblanket the boundary conditions we had to keep the concrete pour within — at least 46⁰F (8⁰C) at the bottom but no warmer than 82⁰F (28⁰C) at the top. IIt was awfully cold, but the blankets kept the concrete temperatures within spec. We achieved the PSI levels we had targeted, and it was a successful operation.”

Curing for Walsh Construction

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers contracted Walsh Construction, experts in heavy civil construction, to repair a portion of the Illinois Waterway, connecting Lake Michigan to the Mississippi River. This winter project proved challenging because low temps were threatening the hydration process, successful curing, and the overall concrete integrity.

The Magic Number is 50°F

Necessary chemical reactions that set and strengthen concrete slow significantly below 50 °F and are almost non-existent below 40 °F. Even when daytime temperatures are within the satisfactory range, cold nighttime temperatures create risks that could result in weak, inadequate concrete. However, if the correct measures are taken, concrete can still be successfully placed during even the coldest months of the year. Powerblanket is here to protect your pour.
