This study aims to determine whether the surface durability of high volume fly ash (HVFA)concrete can be improved by applying alkali solution on its hardened surface. Concentrations of alkali solution and methods of application were studied on several w/cm ratios and replacement percentage of fly ash in concrete mixture proportion to investigate the durability performance. Durability tests conducted were accelerated sulfuric acid attack and ion chloride penetration to investigate the improved durability of HVFA concrete. From the results, it was shown that applying alkali solution on the surface of HVFA concrete can increase its durability performance. The different w/cm ratio and the percentage of fly ash used affect the increase in durability performance. The optimum alkali solution concentration and method of application need further research to determine their effectivity.
