In this paper an attempt has been made to study the permeability characteristics of waste plastic fibres reinforced concrete with the addition of different percentage waste plastic fibres like 0.25%, 0.5%, 0.75%, 1.0%, 1.25%, and 1.5% by weight of cement. Permeability tests were conducted using permeability test apparatus as per the procedure prescribed in IS: 3085-1965. During the test permeability was observed to decrease significantly with the addition of fibres and it was continued to decrease with the increase in fibre content. Considering the strength and durability criteria, it was concluded that waste plastic fibres might be added up to 1% by weight of cement to achieve improved properties.
