How Do You Protect Concrete From Acids?
Concrete is a very durable material, but it is not immune to the effects of aggressive chemicals. Some acids and alkalis can harm concrete if they come into contact with it. Harm to concrete can be mitigated using quality concrete with maximum chemical resistance, followed by applying protective treatments to keep corrosive substances from contacting the concrete.
What Is The Difference Between Cement And Concrete?
Concrete is a mixture of aggregates and paste. The aggregates are sand, gravel, or crushed stone; the paste is water and portland cement. Although cement and concrete are often used interchangeably, cement is an ingredient of concrete. Cement comprises 10 to 15 percent of the concrete mix by volume. Hydrating, the cement, and water harden to bind the aggregates into a rock-like mass. This hardening process continues for years, meaning concrete gets stronger as it ages.
How Long Does It Take For Concrete To Cure?

Concrete curing time depends on various factors, including weather and other environmental conditions. If the concrete has been poured into an area where it will be kept damp, it may take longer to cure than if it is exposed to dry conditions. Generally, 28 days is sufficient curing time for concrete.
