Curing Colored Concrete
Curing compounds in the matching color hardens, dust proofs, and seals the concrete. It will contribute to a consistent look throughout the project. It can also help protect against stains.
Clear curing compounds that work with colored concrete are also available.
Obtain the best results by using a curing compound on the concrete during the curing process with a pump sprayer or clean airless sprayer.
Water curing can leach out soluble salts from the concrete, which can result in efflorescence and the color lightening. Plastic or paper covers can leave marks on the concrete or cause discoloration.
