Abstract: Corrosion of steel reinforcement bar embedded in geo-polymer material has been an object of study to confirm its technical viability. The available alkalinity of geo-polymer material initially was suspected to be harmful for alkali-silica reaction, but then it was found to be beneficial to maintain passivity of the steel bar in concrete. Many researchers carried out studies on the influence of corrosion on bond, generally developed on the basis of experimental tests in specimens subjected to artificial corrosion. The current density applied to accelerate the corrosion influences the bond strength. Since, natural corrosion develops in a very long time, an artificial corrosion has been provided.
