Abstract.It has been observed by several authors that cartesian closed topological categories ensure many nice properties for any associated topological algebras. It turns out that a topological algebra can be cartesian closed without its topological component X being so. However, the algebra component A has to be cartesian closed. It is proved, under the assumptions that X is a cartesian closed well-fibred topological construct and A is a cartesian closed category of algebras with unary operations satisfying a minor condition, is cartesian closed.
