2009 marked the year in which KRAFT completed its largest curing project to date with the completion of the curing facilities for the manufacturing of the cement-coated natural gas supply submarine pipeline in the Baltic Sea, now operating and known as Nord Stream.
In 2013 KRAFT again advanced the area of concrete curing in two ways. First, the introduction of the QUADRIX® II concrete curing system at BAUMA provides the most consistent curing environment available in the industry today while concurrently reducing air velocity in the curing environment. Second, the introduction of a DIY air circulation system in order to provide an economically attainable air circulation for higher quality concrete in regions around the World that are currently developing markets for decorative concrete products.
2013 also saw KRAFT CURING SYSTEMS expand its scope of supply by incorporating a line of flexible retractable curing enclosures for precast, prestress concrete elements and concrete pipe as well as its own line of curing racks for the storage of concrete blocks, pavers and curbs during the curing process. The addition of these products allowed KRAFT to better control the design, quality, supply and installation aspects of these product lines. KRAFT CURING's design approach of both the retractable curing enclosures and curing racks incorporated successful features of existing designs with experience gained on the curing process side while eliminating complexity and unnecessary cost.
