The cement cures into concrete through a chemical process, evaporation is only a small part of that process. Additives are used in weather below freezing to speed the required curing time, a recommendation is to protect the new pour for at least the first 48 hours and preferably to place the cement on unfrozen ground. Batch plant representatives are a good source for specs and additive possibilities. Well compacted and well-drained sub straight, adding reinforcement wire, rebar and fiberglass fibers to the mix will make the material stronger. Color can be trowled in or mixed in.
