This paper presents the effect of chloride ion diffusion on the corrosion activity of kaolin geopolymer paste in artificial seawater. An aluminosilicate material that rich with aluminium and silicon such as kaolin is selected as a raw material in the geopolymerization of geopolymer. Kaolin then mixed with an alkaline activator that consist mixture of sodium hydroxide (NaOH) solution with sodium silicate (Na₂SiO₃) solution. Two types of samples are used in this study, which 7 days and 14 days sample. A few testing is conducted in order to test the chloride ion diffusion on the samples such as Rapid Chloride Permeability Test, Rapid Migration Test and Salinity Test. The result shows that sample for 7 days consist the higher penetration of chloride ion compare sample of 14 days. This is proven with the result of salinity. A longer curing time of the sample cause a lesser penetration of Cl− ion.
