In a letter in the September 2000 issue of Concrete International, D. Srinivasan asked, "Will there be a self-curing concrete?" My answer to this is strongly affirmative for three reasons. First, most of the concrete that is produced and placed each year all over the world already does self-cure. Some of it wasn’t intended to have anything done to its exterior surface. But finishing did in fact take place, and yet the concrete’s ability to serve its intended purpose had not been significantly reduced.
