Layer of water Wet blankets Fig. 11 Concrete curing. Left: flooding the concrete with water and right: place a wet blanket and sprinkle water. Most contractors prefer to apply a curing compound to the concrete. Curing compounds are liquids that seal the concrete surface and keep the water inside. After the concrete is hardened, the curing compound breaks down and the sealing effect will disappear. Curing compounds essentially act as a sealant during curing. It will not allow water to evaporate from the concrete.
