Descripción
The aim of this article is to analyse the water-resistant properties of gypsum compounds with plastic cable waste added in order to determine the suitability of their use as an alternative to combat moisture problems in buildings. In the experimental process, test samples were made and subjected to capillary water absorption, water vapour permeability, wet chamber, water-stove cycle and total water absorption tests, and their porosimetry was also studied using the mercury porosimetry test. The results showed a significant decrease in water absorption and retention capacity. This is due in part to the reduced pore volume of the compounds that is achieved without affecting the hygrothermal properties of the gypsum products and keeping their mechanical properties above the minimum values indicated in the regulations. Thus, the material studied could be a good alternative to the gypsums currently available on the market, to apply in the areas of buildings most exposed to water and to contribute to the reduction of environmental impact.
