Membrane Curing

A process that involves either liquid sealing compound (e.g., bituminous and paraffinic emulsions, coal tar cut-backs, pigmented and non-pigmented resin suspensions, or suspensions of wax and drying oil) or non-liquid protective coating (e.g., sheet plastics or “waterproof ” paper), both of which types function as films to restrict evaporation of mixing water from the fresh concrete surface.
