Strengthening of reinforced concrete elements can be carried out using a variety of materials and techniques. One of such materials is textile reinforced concrete (TRC). This material consists of a matrix, usually made of mortar, and textile as reinforcement. This study aims to produce mortar that meets the characteristic of a TRC matrix with respect to an adequate bond strength. The type of mortar developed in this study was fibre reinforced polyvinyl acetate (PVA) modified mortar. The bond strength of this material to the parent concrete was tested by the slant shear method. The results indicate that the amount of PVA content affects the magnitude of the bond strength. The higher the PVA content, the higher the bond strength. The results also confirm that the relationship between the bond strengths and their corresponding compressive strengths tends to be linear.
