As we all know Curing is considered as the most important part in the construction of a building and the main drawback of curing is the surplus wastage of water in the form of run-down. In this article self-curing concrete is casted by using Polyethylene-Glycol 400 and sodium silicate as replacement of the cement. 1.5% PEG400 is added in the cement (by wt.) and sodium silicate is used as cement replacement upto 5%, 10% (by wt.). Different tests such as compressive strength test, split tensile strength test, flexural strength test are carried out at 3,7 & 28 days on samples which has 1.5% PEG400 with cement, 5% sodium silicate as cement replacement, 1.5% PEG400 and 5% sodium silicate, 1.5% PEG400 and 10% sodium silicate as cement replacement and the results are compared with the conventional concrete. The concrete mixture of cement along with PEG400 gives the promising results when compared with the test results of normal concrete.
