It takes approximately between 6 months to a year for an asphalt project to be fully cured, however, it only takes between 48 and 72 hours on average to dry and allow traffic of people or vehicles, this in case it is treated again asphalt, asphalt maintenance can only take a few hours.

What happens while an asphalt is curing?

In this process asphalt oil plays an important role, when asphalt is placed for the first time, the color of the mix isPavement Surface, Paving Stones, Texture ​​a dark black, which begins to take on a lighter hue as the asphalt ages. This happens because due to direct contact with the sun, the new asphalt loses its oils, which is known as the oxidation process, which is a positive thing since when it is placed for the first time it has too much.

Excess oil on asphalt can be quite a negative factor, as it can cause noticeable scratches on the surface, which becomes an aesthetic problem, especially when vehicles maneuver to get from one point to another.

Appropriate climate

In addition to not rushing the surface, curing involves maintaining the correct temperature and humidity level so that the hardener crystals in the concrete react with the cement. Wait to install the path until temperatures are between 60 and 90 degrees Fahrenheit (15 and 32 degrees C). If temperatures drop below 40 degrees Fahrenheit (5 degrees C), wet concrete will not dry completely unless it is specially mixed for cold weather.

Hydration

Floor, Paving Stones, Colorful, HellOnce the road has been poured, it is important to maintain a consistent level of surface moisture. Hydration is a process in which moisture enters the concrete and encourages the growth of particles in the mix. While adding too much water creates a sand-like consistency on the surface that can peel and fall off, too little water causes a weak surface to crack and break.

Slow drying

Slow-setting concrete is easy to do. This extends the drying time of a typical concrete driveway from 5 to 8 inches (12.5 to 20 cm) thick by several days. The best way to dry slowly is to lay straw, or a breathable damp material such as tow or concrete on the surface, and lightly spray the material with a hose a few times a day to keep it moist. Plastic is also used, but it can cause staining on an exterior surface by not allowing air flow.

Standard drying times

Poured concrete develops half its strength after 10 days and full strength after 27 days. It takes about 2 days for a 4-inch (10 cm) concrete driveway to dry enough to withstand foot traffic. Drying time for a road is longer because the roads are thicker and exposed to heavier loads and daily use.
