Drying & Curing Time

Drying and curing is a two-stage process. First ECOBASE™ SS dries and then it cures. Newly installed ECOBASE™ SS can be used as intended as soon as the surface dries.

Drying Time cannot be predicted with absolute accuracy because drying is an evaporative process that depends on the weather. ECOBASE™ SS does not set like concrete through a purely chemical process. On a hot sunny day, the treated soil will dry within a few hours. But on a cool cloudy day, it could take a full day or more for the treated soil to dry. When planning a ECOBASE™ SS installation, ample time should be allowed for the treated soil to dry and it is better to plan on the weather being unfavorable than to plan on favorable weather.

Curing Time is longer. ECOBASE™ SS has maximum resistance to water infiltration after it cures. The complete curing process takes approximately 28 days, depending on weather and traffic patterns. If flooding or total submersion occurs before the ECOBASE™ SS has cured, the pavement will not have maximum resistance to water invasion that comes from below and laterally.
