An exhaustive study should be carried on Crumb Rubber Concrete deterioration caused by sulphate attack in this paper. the crumbed tire rubber powder were used to replace fine aggregates of concrete, whose grain size is 0.28mm. The replacement levels were 5%, 10%, 15% and 20 % by volume of the fine aggregates. It is evaluated to effect of sulphate attack on appearance and compressive strength of crumb rubber concrete. The research shows that appropriate proportional fine aggregate replaced by rubber powder can improve resistance to sulphate attack of concrete, especially mixing 5% and 10% rubber powder. But too much rubber content results in decreasing its performance.
