Concrete curing CANNOT take place on a surface, if it is frozen, if it is below freezing temperature, or if it has snow, ice, or frost on it. So during those bitter cold months, there is no concrete curing without Powerblanket’s electric concrete blankets. These heat blankets have a proprietary Green Heat technology to speed up the concrete curing time, which results in a better surface hardness and improved abrasion resistance.
More Benefits of Insulated Concrete Blankets
Electric curing blankets also help to prevent concrete freezing, concrete cracking, and rapid concrete drying during a wet cure process. These concrete blankets can also help to deliver a superior finished product.
Used internationally by contractors during the wintry months, the PowerBlanket heat blankets help to extend the construction work season along with speeding up your schedule for completed jobs. Concrete insulation blankets can be used for curing bridge decks, precast foundations, and other curing needs during subzero weather. The PowerBlanket Multi-Duty concrete curing blankets can heat up to 110 degrees F, which makes them ideal for constructions sites in the winter months and the northern states.
PowerBlankets can be used for Ground Thawing, too.
In addition, a concrete curing blanket can be used for thawing frozen ground or as a snow melting mat. The Extra Hot concrete blankets can heat up to 170 degrees F.
Results can vary due to the temperature outside, the wind speed, the moisture content of the ground, and the type of ground, (i.e. soil, sand, grass, gravel, etc.), but ongoing data suggests that your Powerblanket can thaw the ground with its heated section approximately 12 inches deep in a 24 hour period. It is important to remember that snow and ice are terrible conductors of heat, so they need to be shoveled or scraped away before applying your Powerblanket to get the deepest penetration of heat beneath your frozen ground surface.
