Gypsum plasters are related to the use of new additives that allow changing the setting time and the water content of the mixture and also the possibility of applying different aggregates in the mortars, that improve their properties. The objectives on which we have focused in this study, is one of those mechanical properties, the compressive strength, of the mixture of gypsum with graphene, in different proportions, performing the tests by standard methods. Significant results have been obtained comparing the properties of compressive strength of the gypsum plaster without addition, with the results obtained for the gypsum plasters with graphene, in different proportions. Graphene gives a 12% increase in compressive strength.
