Current specifications call for the removal of all visible curing compound material from the pavement. New concrete appears white when the curing compound is present. When it is properly removed, the concrete appears gray or tan. If there is still evidence of the "white" curing compound, have the equipment operator run another pass over the area to see if more can come up. If the white stain resists a second attempt, the membrane is unlikely to cause a problem. Hi-Lite Airfield Services accomplishes curing compound removal and other proper surface preparation requirements through the use of our hydroblasters and shotblasting equipment.
