This research evaluates the effect of melt spinning ultra-draw HDPE fiber using as the reinforced material in cement mortar. A whole set of experimental data were created reference to the efficiency of using HDPE fiber reinforced on the tensile and flexural properties of cement mortar with different high drawn ratio of HDPE fibers. The fiber with the different drawn ratio10x (d10 with E xx), 25x (d25 with E xx), and 35x (d35 with E xx) were used and the stress – strain displacement relationship behavior of HDPE short fiber reinforced cement mortar were investigated. It was found that the high drawn ratio of HDPE fiber show more improved in tensile strength and toughness than the low drawn ratio of HDPE fiber when reinforced in cement mortar.
