Self-healing concrete

"I don't know enough about this so-called self-healing concrete - The self-healing concrete might serve as a cosmetic patch, but I can assure you it cannot be used to fix the underlying problem which is the corrosion of the reinforcing steel - It is the combination of the reinforcing steel and the concrete that gives concrete its strength - It is the corrosion of the reinforcing steel that is the problem, not the concrete - They have been doing cosmetic repairs for almost 50 years now"
