Abstract : Curing of concrete involves maintaining satisfactory moisture content during the early ages in developing the desired properties. The present research analyses the influence of hydrophobic chemical as self-curing agent (Liquid Paraffin Wax Light and Heavy) in recycled aggregate based Self Compacting Concrete (SCC). The analysis comprises of understanding the effect of self-curing compound in terms of parameters like water retention, compressive strength, porosity and sorptivity. The compressive strength of self-cured specimens closely matched those of conventional water cured specimens. The optimum dosages of light and heavy Liquid paraffin wax were found to be 0.1% by weight of cement. It has been observed that the use of self-curing chemicals in SCC facilitated better hydration and helped in enhancement of strength and durability perspectives. Keywords- Self Compacting Concrete, Recycled Aggregate, Liquid Paraffin Wax, Compressive Strength, Sorptivity, Porosity
