To reach the requisite strength, curing becomes crucial for concrete. Instead of submerging or spraying concrete, we present the idea of self-curing concrete to achieve strength at an early stage. Water solvent polymers are used in concrete as self-curing compounds. The purpose of the current study is to evaluate the effects of Polyethylene glycol 400 on the compressive strength of concretes by adding it at various percentages up to 2% to the weight of cement. In this case, concrete grade M30 is utilised. It was discovered that the strength properties could be determined using 2% PEG 400 curing chemicals. The strength value slightly decreases at greater rates. The purpose is to assess how well water-soluble polymeric glycol works as a curing compound. In dry regions with insufficient access to water, the benefits of curative agents are useful
