Concrete Setting Time
Concrete setting time testing is beneficial to identify various stages of the concrete's hardening process. Measuring the concrete with set time tools determines various effects such as: temperature, mixture proportions, hardening of concrete and additions to the settings. more »

Set Time, continued
Knowing the set time will help to determine when the concrete has fully hardened. The term “initial set” is the semi-hardened, partially hydrated condition of the concrete beyond which it can no longer be worked.
