Geopolymer Mortar, Metakaolin


Mortar is one of the most widely used construction material; it is usually associated with Portland cement as the main binder. Portland cement production is under critical review due to high amount of carbon dioxide gas released to the atm. The use of Portland cement is still unavoidable in the future; efforts are made to reduce use of Portland cement in concrete. These efforts include utilization of supplementary materials such as fly-ash, silica flumes, granulated blast furnace slag, rice husk ash and metakaolin as alternative binders to Portland cement. In this respect, Geopolymer Technology show considerable promise for application in the concrete industry as an alternative binder to Portland cement. GEOPOLYMER MORTAR is new that doesn’t require use of Portland cement as a binder. Instead, the sources of materials such as fly-ash that are rich in silicon, aluminum, are activated by liquids to produce the binder. Hence mortar with no Portland cement. This paper covers constituents of Geopolymer mortar, casting procedure, curing methods, advantages, limitation and Economical benefits of Geopolymer mortar.
