The development of the construction industry and the growing ecological awareness of society encourages us search for new solutions to improve building materials. Therefore, an attempt was made to improve building gypsum by modifying it with the addition of polyoxymethylene (POM). Polymer grains, with a particle size below and above 2 mm, were added to the samples in the amount of 1% and 2% relative to gypsum. The work contains the results of bending and compressive strength tests of prepared gypsum beams. It was shown that the compressive strength increased by 7% and the bending strength increased by 31% when compared to the reference test without the addition of polymer. All the obtained gypsum composites were characterized by a growth of strength. The best results were obtained for the sample containing gypsum composite modified with polymer in the amount of 1% and with a diameter of grains below 2 mm.
