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 […]

#22 GEOASH: ambient temp. hardening of fly ash-based geopolymer cements

Aug 8, 2014 | No Comments

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.

What is a geopolymer? Introduction

updated: August 17, 2012 Geopolymers are chains or networks of mineral molecules linked with co-valent bonds. They have following basic characteristics: a) Nature of the hardened material: X-ray amorphous at ambient and medium temperatures X-ray crystalline at temperatures >500°C b) Synthesis Routes: alkaline medium (Na, K, Ca) hydroxides and alkali-silicates yielding poly(silicates) – poly(siloxo) type […]

Introduction: developments and applications in geopolymer

Materials for the Third Millennium Think Geopolymer and Geosynthesis! The last few years have seen spectacular technological progress in the development of geosynthesis and geopolymeric applications. New state-of-the-art materials designed with the help of geopolymerisation reactions are opening up new applications and procedures, and transforming ideas that have been taken for granted in inorganic and […]

Introduction: Why an archaeology section at the Geopolymer Institute?

When all the logical conjectures have been set aside, the one that remains, as improbable as it may seem, is likely to be true. At the Geopolymer Institute we use archaeology as a data bank, to validate our discoveries (see the projects GEOCISTEM and Global Warming and the Geopolymer Proceedings ). Thanks to these historical […]
