Internal Curing with Lightweight Aggregate

Sep 14, 2016The addition of lightweight aggregate to a mix for internal curing will reduce the density of the concrete, but that is not the main goal. However, for precast products, weight reduction is an important benefit. Any concrete mixture that contains lightweight aggregate provides internal curing if the aggregate has been prewetted prior to batching.
