Precast Concrete’s Compressive Strength - American Precast

2021-8-12  The earliest manufacturers can unmold and handle the precast concrete is when the concrete reaches 2,500 psi. With a target compressive strength of 3,000 psi, the concrete would take several days to reach that strength. For precast concrete to compete with the cast in place concrete, it needs to be much quicker than that.

What is Prestressed Concrete? Columbia Precast Products

2021-4-12  Prestressed concrete is a way to improve the tensile strength of precast concrete. Tensile strength measures concrete’s ability to withstand the pressure of being pulled apart. (Compressive strength, as the name indicates, is concrete’s ability to withstand compression.)
