Concrete is one of the most used materials in construction, due to its great versatility and high workability and can be molded in any way besides having high compressive strength, on the other hand the resources used for its manufacture are not from renewable sources. In order to search for new materials and to help the environment, as the number of improperly discarded PET bottles is huge, non-structure concrete was produced with the addition of polyethylene terephthalate (PET) fibers in order to improve its mechanical characteristics. Due to the widespread use of concrete in the world and the improper disposal of the PET bottle polluting the environment and causing various environmental problems. From these circumstances, fiber added to the concrete was produced in the following proportions (2%, 4% and 6%) instead of Portland cement, obtaining a 7 mm Slump Test. The specimens were submitted to a curing process (3, 7, 14, 21 and 28 days) in which an improvement in the resistance can be observed during the curing process. how many for resistance gain.
