Dimensionally stable anodes have been widely used to cathodically protect the metallic materials in corrosive environments including concrete structure as the insoluble anode. Lifespan of the anode for concrete construction can be determined by NACE TM0294-94 method. Lifespan of conductive oxide electrode would be affected by thermal treatment condition in the process of sol-gel coatings. This work aims to evaluate the effect of thermal treatment temperature on the lifespan of the RuO2 electrode. 450℃ treated conductive oxide electrode showed the excellent properties and its lifespan was evaluated to be over 88 years in 3% NaCl, 4% NaOH, and simulated pore water. This behavior was related to the formation of RuO2.
