The mechanical properties of cement-based composites reinforced with glass textile are strongly affected by the low ability of the inorganic matrix to penetrate within the single filaments, and by the low durability of the fibers in an alkaline environment. Over the last decades, different studies have investigated the possibility to improve the mechanical properties and the durability of this class of composites by modifying the surface of the reinforcement, mainly using different types of organic or inorganic coatings. Although different solutions have been proposed, the feasibility of applying these techniques strictly depend on the final application of the composite. This review aims to give an overview of the different methods that have been proposed in the literature and to highlight advantages and drawbacks.
