Hi, hydrogen is a cross-linked polymer which is water absorbed and holds due to its hydrophilic properties.
Nowadays, the hydrogel is used as a curing method but it is very expensive so not used worldwide. the hydrogen curing method is only used for very small and important works.
The hydrogel of type sodium acrylate co-acrylamide is basically used for curing.
This is a superior curing method gives has following advantages:
Curing of concrete with hydrogel:
Basically curing is one of the chemical processes in the field of polymer chemistry and is widely used in civil engineering to harden the cementitious material bi crosslinking of various polymer chains.
Hydrogel consists of various polymeric compounds which are capable of holding water in their three-dimensional network.
The hydrogel is a wound-healing material. Following precaution should be taken while curing,
