    1. Scope

    1.1 This specification covers materials in sheet form used for covering the surfaces of hydraulic cement concrete to inhibit moisture loss during the curing period and, in the case of the white reflective type materials, to also reduce temperature rise in concrete exposed to radiation from the sun. The following types are included:

    1.1.1 Curing Paper:

    1.1.1.1 Regular.

    1.1.1.2 White.

    1.1.2 Polyethylene Film:

    1.1.2.1 Clear.

    1.1.2.2 White Opaque.

    1.1.3 White-Burlap-Polyethylene Sheet.

    1.2 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard.

    1.3 The text of this standard references notes and footnotes which provide explanatory material. These notes and footnotes shall not be considered as requirements of the standard.
