In this study, the combined effect of different amount of graphite powder as a substitute for sand and three cure methods on the strength and durability properties of cement mortar have been investigated. The results can be concluded that graphite powder can effectively improve the strength of cement based materials. To meet the objectives, cement mortar mix is prepared with various percentage of graphite powder that is 0.1%, 0.5%, 1%, 1.5% and 2% strength and durability properties are obtained from compressive strength test, split tensile. From the results the optimum percentage of addition of graphite powder to cement motor is determined to without effecting properties of the cement motor
