Why Alkali-Activated Materials are NOT Geopolymers ?

Why Alkali-Activated Materials are NOT Geopolymers ?

Jul 16, 2014 | No Comments

Many scientists and civil engineers are mistaking alkali activation for geopolymers, fueling confusion, using them as synonyms without understanding what they really are. In his recent keynote at the Geopolymer Camp 2014, Prof. J. Davidovits explained why Alkali-Activated-Materials are not Geopolymers, or why alkali-activation is not geopolymerization. We have selected and merged into one video […]

The European Research Project GEOASH: (2004-2007). Development of room temperature hardening for fly ash-based geopolymer cements and concretes. When compared with alkali-activated, heat-cured conventional methods, the slag/fly ash-based geopolymer cement technologies, which harden at ambient temperature, provide better properties: higher strength, safer long-term durability and lower leachates.

World-wide increase in geopolymer research

Twenty five years long, geopolymer science was studied in very few laboratories and institutions. It is only during the last ten years that we notice a strong increase in geopolymer research. The actual situation was presented by Prof. J. Davidovits in his 2010 Geopolymer Camp Keynote: State of the Geopolymer 2010. The following map shows […]
