It is well known that steel rebars are used to improve tensile strength of the concrete for the all type of structural application. Steel reinforced concrete posses excellent mechanical properties but lacks in chemical composition due to corrosion resistance. When the steel rebars starts corroding, the shape of the steel rebars is destabilized and results in detrimental failure of the concrete. To overcome this draw backs several approaches have been done to prevent the corrosion of the steel rebars. One of the approach is to replace the steel with non-corrosive reinforce material, namely Fiber reinforced polymers. Therefore this work is to create a new innovative researching material about rebar’s [Sisal Fiber] using chemical application. More recently these techniques have been refined by embedding the steel bars in the concrete, and by the introduction of deformed bars to improve bonding, thus producing modern reinforced concrete now a day’s. Research has been proved, to replace the iron with other materials such as sisal. fibre reinforced plastic and even galvanized iron because iron can rust easily and weaken the structure. But the sisal fiber is a natural fiber, so its free from corrosion and prevent the structure safely. In particular, the sisal fiber is one of the most investigated and being used in engineering systems.
