Since the steel component used in ferrocement on a specific surface area is greater compared to conventional concrete and cover thickness is quite small, it is necessary to look into the corrosion resistance properties of ferrocement. In this paper it is shown that the tolerable limit for chloride is less than 0.5% by weight of cement and addition of an inhibitor admixture was found to give efficient corrosion protection at all chloride concentrations ranging from 0.5 to 3%
