The key to achieving a strong, durable concrete lies in knowing the correct ratio for mixing cement and water. Under the process of concrete curing, the concrete is protected from loss of moisture and is kept within a specific temperature range, resulting in increased strength and decreased porousness. These methods, however, end up consuming a lot of water and are labour-intensive, where the curing requires round-the-clock monitoring or the effort goes down the drain.
Cure It, a green venture founded by Abhishek Mandaliya in 2016, employs a unique method known as drip curing, where a limited amount of water is dripped slowly at regular intervals for curing concrete. The method takes inspiration from the drip irrigation system that is used for agricultural purposes. The flow of water is controlled so that only the necessary amount of water is used, hence saving large quantities of water. The innovation includes multi-layered sheets comprising water pockets, gunny bags (made from jute), and PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride) films that are tightly bound to each other. Through the PVC film, only the required water trickles down the concrete, while the jute in the sheet helps in maintaining the cool temperature.
