How Best To Protect Concrete

Due to the complexity of concrete, there are some really important factors to consider when choosing protection:


1. How soon after pour do you need to protect, and for how long?

2. What is the finish of the slab and will it be completely finished at the stage when protection is required to be installed? Or, will you be finishing off (final grind etc) the slab after the protection has been removed?

3. What do you need to protect the slab from ie. machinery vs. foot traffic?

4. What has been added to the slab prior to protecting e.g curing agents, densifiers, guards and sealers?


Furthermore, any concrete protection system needs to be able to allow the slab to continue to breathe over time - and in addition, the protection should allow the slab to breath evenly. This means the protection product is able to be placed evenly (flat) and consistently, and must be breathable, in order to avoid the chances of curing lines or tiger strips. This is particularly important when protection is required for extended periods.


The good news is there are a number of options available for protection and depending on the process used for laying the slab, i.e. budget and site traffic etc, there is more than likely a solution that will meet your requirements.​​
