curing and grinding compound for polished concrete surfaces

"Of all the aspects of concrete practice, curing is probably the one least understood and most poorly practiced." - Concrete Institute of Australia, Recommended Practice - Curing of Concrete, 1991.

Many concrete problems result from poor curing. Poorly cured concrete tends to have higher permeability at the exposed surface that makes it prone to deterioration.  In collaboration with the silicate industry, Concrete Collaborative Australia undertook product development and comparative testing of CC Curehard with the much maligned curing membrane compounds to develop a ready-to-use, easy to apply, low voc, non-yellowing, solvent free, colourless and odourless alternative with ASTM comparative performance.  A breakthrough, simple and economic when compared to any other method of concrete curing.

CC Curehard gives peace of mind to designers, builders, concreters, polished concrete contractors and end-users.  It enhances:

  • grinding and polishing productivity

  • concrete strength

  • crack control

  • surface hardness & durability


It is a cost effective preventative measure designed for a superior result. Put simply, it's a "no-brainer"!

For honing/polishing, densifying/hardening, use our CC Lithium Superhardener.


  1. Cost effective

  2. Easy application

  3. Improves the curing efficiency of concrete making it less prone to shrinkage and cracking

  4. Colourless and odourless

  5. Good for interior and exterior surfaces

  6. Excellent surface penetration with an invisible finish

Directions for use:

  1. Always test a small area to confirm suitability, coverage rate and desired results before beginning overall application.

  2. Use directly from container.

  3. Wear protective gloves and eye protection during work.  If contact occurs rinse immediately.

  4. For curing - After initial set (when able to walk on, usually the next morning) apply liberally with a high volume, low pressure sprayer and let cure for 5 days, preferably 10 days minimum.  Use CC Film Evaporation Retarder on the day of the pour.

  5. For grind hardening - Spray and spread with a microfibre applicator after the coarse grind.  After the medium grind, spray and spread thinly with a microfibre applicator.

  6. Application rate 5m2/l approximately.
