Polyethylene Terephthalates (PET) is one of the most plastic containers that are normally being discarded by people, which resulted in environmental pollution. One of the best ways to reduce the environmental pollution is by recycling PET as a ringshaped PET (RPET) fiber in concrete. Therefore, it is appropriate to investigate the RPET fiber in term of pullout strength of RPET fiber concrete. A rotal of 30 cubes for the fiber pullout test were made with three embedded fiber length sizes, namely l5 mm, 20 mm, and 25 mm. The RPET-10 fiber exhibited the highest pullout load of 103.6% compared with RPET-5 fiber at l5 mm embedded length. This finding shows a similar pattern for 20 mm and 25 mnr ernbedded lengths RPET-10 fiber obtained 77.2% and l3.7% increases in pullout strength compared with RPET-S flber, at 20 to 25 mm embedded lengths. In conclusion. this result for the pullout load strength is important as new inputs to the technical properties of RPET FC- during pullout load test.
