Keyway Curb is formed by customized equipment that compresses a high strength, fiber reinforced concrete mix through a mold having the engineers desired shape.
The low slump concrete is slip formed over a 1 inch deep by 5 inch wide “KEYWAY” and creates a continuous anchoring of the curb throughout its entirety. Control joints are placed every 5-6′ at a minimum depth of 25% of the thickness of the concrete.
We apply a white wax cure for its indicator properties as well as its UV resistance during its curing period. Twenty-eight day cylinder breaks are typically 5200-=5600 psi.
