The TCM 1800 texture curing machine from Wirtgen America offers high productivity curing and texturing of portland cement concrete slabs.

This self-propelled, track-mounted texture curing machine follows behind the slipform paver when placing concrete slabs, and is equipped with an automatic brooming and spraying system which adds pavement texture, and then a thin film of curing compound.

Its four-track propulsion is particularly useful on ground with low bearing capacities. The four hydraulically driven, height-adjustable and steerable track units provide optimal propulsion. Hydraulically telescoping frame elements, left and right, complement the TCM-1800’s modular design. A walk-through operator’s platform is paired with a wide working platform.

A spraying unit with three nozzles that moves back and forth automatically, and broom unit in various designs, are mounted at the transverse drive. Optimal application of the curing compound is ensured in both stop-and-go operation and continuous advance mode, for instance, when paving exposed aggregate concrete. A 211-gal. (800-L) curing compound tank with integrated agitator provides a reliable flow of material while paving.

Additional Features

Different broom patterns are available for the TCM 1800 to give concrete pavements their specified surface texture and grip. The broom unit is automatically raised at both ends to prevent the concrete edge from damage. The machine also can be equipped with a broom unit operating in longitudinal direction. If specified, a burlap or artificial turf can be dragged across fresh pavement instead of a broom finish.

The TCM 1800 is equipped with a self-loading feature. Its pivot steering system does not require any conversion to pivot track units 90 deg. from working position into transport position.

The machine’s flexible steering system enables small turning radii when in working position, and easy maneuvering is ensured also when in transport position.
