Geopolymer cement is based on inorganic materials with a polymer structure of molecules. Geopolymer binders and concretes are high-strength and possess a range of specific properties. They are called “geopolymers” because the raw materials used for their production are mainly minerals of geological origin. Geopolymer cement is chemically inert to a range of aggressive substances, and remains sturdy in severe climates. In comparison to traditional concrete production technology based on portland cement, geopolymer is far superior in strength, durability, freeze-thaw resistance, fire resistance, heat insulation, corrosion and aggressive substance resistance, including some types of acids.
In addition, the use of Geopolymer reduces CO2 emissions by up to 80%, compared to portland cement production. Geopolymer can also be formulated to actually re-use and recycle industrial byproducts as aggregates.
