The autoclave method of curing concrete masonry At Boehmers, freshly molded block are loaded into the autoclave kiln for processing. The kiln is sealed and steam pressure of more than 120 psi (827 kpa) is applied at 100% humidity. After curing at 350 F (170 C), the steam pressure is released creating a vacuum that returns the block to an air
Concrete curing aids in the development of strength and resistance to weathering. Proper curing also adds to the wear-resistant qualities which are essential in deck concrete. Curing is based on the idea of retaining the mixing water in the concrete as the chemical reaction takes place.
Autoclaved Lightweight Concrete (ALC). Early histo-ry of AAC is based on a series of process patents. In 1880, a German researcher, Michaelis was granted a patent on his steam curing processes. Czech Hoff-man successfully tested and patented the method of "aerating" the concrete by carbon dioxide in 1889.
After evaporation of the hydrogen and initial setting, aerated concrete is cut into required sizes and cured by steam-curing in a pressurized chamber (an autoclave) or low pressurized steam chambers. The result is a non-toxic, high strength, lightweight, airtight material that can be used for all walling applications.

Farmington Hills Mich. (July 22, 2016) - The American Concrete Institute announces the availability of two important new documents for concrete industry professionals: ACI 301-16 Specifications for Structural Concrete, and the ACI Field Reference Manual. ACI 301-16 Specifications for Structural Concrete is a reference specification that an architect or engineer can apply to any construction
specification on which he wanted to bid. The specification required the concrete compressive strength at 28 days to be a minimum of 4000 psi and a maximum of 5500 psi, based on the average strength of three standard-cure 4x8-in. cylinders. The contractor asked one possible ready-mix concrete supplier if this was possible: the supplier said no.
Aerated concrete block, also referred to as autoclaved aerated concrete or AAC, is an innovative type of concrete containing around 80 percent air. These special concrete blocks have a number of advantages: They're strong, light and provide better sound and thermal insulation than conventional blocks.

CURING General Curing is one of the most important steps in concrete construction. Proper curing increases the strength and durability of concrete, and a poor curing job can ruin an otherwise well-done project. Proper water content and temperature are essential for good curing. In near freezing temperatures the hydration process slows considerably.
Autoclaved aerated concrete (AAC), a form of cellular concrete, is a low-density cementitious product of calcium silicate hydrates in which the low density is obtained by the formation of macroscopic air bubbles, mainly by chemical reactions within the mass during the liquid or plastic phase. The air bubbles are uniformly distributed and are retained in the matrix on setting, hardening, and
