The aim of this investigation is to study the strength and durability properties of concrete using water-soluble Polyethylene Glycol as self-curing agent. The function of self-curing agent is to reduce the water evaporation from concrete, and hence they increase the water retention capacity of concrete compared to the conventionally cured concrete. The experiments are designed by adding a shrinkage admixture (POLYETHYLENE GLYCOL-400) at different percentages such as 0, 0.1, 0.5, 1, and 1.5 of cement content. In this study, compressive strength of concrete containing self-curing agent is investigated and compared with those of conventionally cured concrete. It is found through this experimental study that concrete cast with Polyethylene Glycol as self-curing agent is stronger than that obtained by sprinkler curing as well as by immersion curing. The mechanical properties like compressive strength are studied. The test results were studied at inside the lab for air curing. The optimum dosage of PEG-400 for maximum strengths was found to be 1.5 percentages.
