Abstract: Sizings and coatings are considered to heal severe surface flaws of brittle alkali-resistant glass fibres. The fibre diameter in combination with the surface area and the interaction with sizings/coatings are varied systematically resulting in different surface modifications and interphase properties. This enables to investigate and to infer relations to the durability after exposure to concentrated environmental attack and the fracture energy of concrete specimens. The mechanical properties of sized and coated ARG and the fracture energy of the composites achieved are elucidated as a function of fibre diameter, sizing and coating content as well as their chemical formulations under special consideration of nanotubes and nanoclay. Furthermore, the results achieved with nano-dispersed polymer coatings on glass fibres are transferred to carbon fibres and their concrete composites.
