Scrap tyres disposal revival the environmental concern except if recycled in an eco-friendly way. The inclusion of waste tyre crumb rubber (WTCRs) as a partial replacement of natural aggregate can be possible solutions for those concern. Thus, this study investigates the effect of using WTCRs at various contents (5, 10, 20 and 30% of volume) as a replacement agent of fine or/and coarse aggregate on water absorption, carbonation depth and chloride ion penetration rubberised concrete prepared with 20% ground blast furnace slag (GBFS) as Portland cement (OPC) replacement. Twelve batches are prepared by mixing the industrial wastes of GBFS and WTCRs. The results shown that modified rubberised containing 5% WRTCs as a substitute to natural aggregate, provided high durable performance such as lower water absorption, carbonation depth and chloride ion penetration compared to control specimen of traditional concrete. However, the rubberised concrete durability performance slightly trends to decrease with increasing WRTCs content from 5% to 30%, these proposed mix designs have a high potential for a wide variety of concrete industrial applications, especially in acid and sulphate risk.
