The Powerblanket multi-duty heating blanket cures concrete 2.8-times faster than concrete covered with a standard curing blanket, according to the manufacturer, in a test conducted at temperatures from 22.3 degrees F to 38.6 degrees F. The blankets retain moisture throughout the natural hydration process to create a wet cure environment that protects against cracking and rapid drying. The blanket thaws frozen ground and protects construction materials and machinery from freezing. The blankets are offered in several sizes ranging from 2-by-2 feet to 11-by-23 feet, and custom sizes are available upon request. Powered by 120V electricity, the blankets eliminate the need for open flames and hazardous waste.
