How to Install TopCure® 

Protective Covers

By

TopCure is an effective, safe, and easy-to-use solution for wet curing on both large and small concrete projects. In this tutorial, we’ll show you the proper way to install TopCure to help ensure your concrete cures to its ultimate top-layer strength. 

Installation Instructions 

Step 1: Preparation 

Immediately after the final finish, start the wet cure process. 

Step 2: Flooding the Area 

Working in sections, flood the area ahead of the roll with water. Slowly unroll material on top of the water, being sure to avoid wrinkles as much as possible.

Step 3: Rolling Out TopCure 

Begin rolling out TopCure along the edge of the slab while simultaneously spraying the inner fabric layer with water. Ensure the fabric side is completely saturated. 

Step 4: Covering the Slab 

Continue unrolling and saturating the material with water. The material should “float” on the water.  

Overlap edges by at least 6 inches. 

Avoid creases in the material to prevent tiger stripes and blemishes. 

STEP 5: SECURING THE MATERIAL 

For outdoor use, weigh down the edges and seams with rebar, 2x4s, or similar weights to prevent air from getting underneath. Alternatively, or in addition, if the slab is level and flat, you can add water across the surface of the blanket to act as extra weight. 

STEP 6: REMOVAL 

After the specified curing time, remove TopCure and dispose.

Its ease of use, SAP-free composition, and ability to lay flat without rewetting make it the superior choice for concrete curing.
