Abstract:
Geopolymers represent a family of emerging high performance binders produced by reactions between aluminosilicate solids and an alkali silicate solution. Their rapid development in recent years points to a wide range of potential engineering applications within both construction and mining sectors. However, full exploitation of Geopolymer technology depends largely on gaining clear understanding of the fundamental limits of feedstock materials in relation to synthesis chemistry and process parameters. Experimental results presented in this Paper disclose the role of silica and alkali species present in feedstock materials and their impact on engineering properties such as strength development.
