Glass flakes were modified with silane coupling agent, and characterized by Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR). Then the modified glass flakes were blend with epoxy resin to prepared composite glass/epoxy paint. Further, the corrosion performance of the composite glass/epoxy coated carbon steel was assessed by means of neutral salt spray test and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS). The results show that this method can successfully modify the surface of glass flakes by increasing hydroxyl pairing, and the glass flakes have a good shielding effect on corrosive media in solution, which significantly improves the corrosion resistance of epoxy coatings. 30%(mass fraction) glass flake modified epoxy coating immersed in 3.5%NaCl solution for 648 h, the impedance modulus Z was above 107.6 Ω?cm2, which was much higher than that of ordinary epoxy coating. The diffusion coefficient D of water molecule in 30% glass flake modified coatings is 2.07×10-11 cm2/s, which is much smaller than that of ordinary epoxy coating 1.9×10-9 cm2/s.
