This research aims to investigate the influence of anti-corrosive coating on the bond behavior of coated corroded rebar to concrete. Two different types of anti-corrosive coating materials have been considered and each is to be applied manually. The test specimens are divided into six groups. Group I contains sound or non-corroded rebar serve as control group, Group II and III are the coated sound rebar groups serve to investigate the direct effect of coating, while Group IV is the bare corroded rebar group, and the Group V and VI are the coated corroded rebar groups. The accelerated electric corrosion method is employed for the Group IV-VI with a varying target degree of corrosion ranging from 5% to 10%. After the target corrosion degree is achieved, laser scanning test is conducted to investigate the change in geometrical properties of the sound/coated and the coated corroded rebar groups. Thereafter, Group IIII are casted and Group IV-VI are re-casted into new specimens and bond-slip relationships are measured through two-end pull out test. As important findings, the anti-corrosive coating materials have a significant influence on the bond behavior. Cementitious coated exhibits a brittle bond-slip behavior and shows a better performance as compared to epoxy coated with a ductile bond-slip behavior.
