  • A Simple Guide to Concrete Cube Testing

    The cubes should be covered with a damp cloth and a plastic sheet and stored in dry environment at a temperature range of 20 ± 5 degrees. The concrete cubes are removed from the moulds between 16 to 72 hours, usually this done after 24 hours. Make sure the cube ID is transferred to the cube from the mould before placing into a curing tank.
