Corrosion of reinforced concrete members generates tremendous tensile stress within the concrete surroundings, thereby cutting short expected design life span of structures. This experimental work investigated the influence of corrosion inhibitors of mangifera indica steel coated bar with resins / exudates on the bond behavior of reinforced concrete cube members. Cubes of 150 mm x150 mmx150 mm of uncoated and coated with mangifera indica resins/exudates extracts of thicknesses 150µm,(ABC), 250µm (DEF) and 350µm (GHI) were embedded into concrete and exposed to harsh marine saline / corrosive environment of Sodium Chloride (NaCl) for 60days to accelerate corrosion potential process.
