These characteristics can be affected by the materials used, the composition of the mix, the degree of mechanical bond between the plaster and the supporting surface, and the quality of the work. Ferro cement is now growing demand as a building material. Ferro-cement is made from a variety of silicon and aluminum-rich components, including fly ash, rice husk ash, silica fume, metakaolin and blast furnace slag. Using ferro-cement mortar lowers pollution since less CO2 is discharged into the atmosphere. The behaviour of eco-friendly high-performance mortar (HPM), which is used to make ferrocement, will be investigated in this study. This study will examine how different percentages (0%-15%) of silica fume (SF) mortar and metakaolin (MK) mortar with natural sisal fibres (NSF) behave. It will also test-cast a cube with dimensions of 50 X 50 X 50 mm and test its compressive strength and durability. The negative impact of silica fume (SF) on workability is lessened and mechanical performance is improved when metakaolin (MK) and SF are used with cement in mortar as a partial replacement for the cement. The mortar performs best at age 28 when mixture of 5–10%SF and 10%MK is used.
