preparation of geopolymer concrete using egyptian kaolin

Investigating the possibility of geopolymer to produce

Using geopolymer type of binder in wood composite manufacturing would result in a potentially important class of formaldehyde-free type of wood composites. Such material would probably be welcomed by the construction material providers, provided that similar properties as wood composites prepared with phenol, melamine, or isocyanate can be

29Si NMR Study of Structural Ordering in Aluminosilicate

A systematic series of aluminosilicate geopolymer gels was synthesized and then analyzed using 29Si magic-angle spinning nuclear magnetic resonance (MAS NMR) in combination with Gaussian peak deconvolution to characterize the short-range ordering in terms of T−O−T bonds (where T is Al or Si). The effect of nominal Na2O/(Na2O + K2O) and Si/Al ratios on short-range network ordering was

The Relationship of Na2SiO3/NaOH Ratio, Kaolin/Alkaline

The strength of geopolymer depends on the nature of source materials. For example, geopolymer produced with calcined source material such as calcined kaolin, fly ash, ground granulated blastfurnace slag (GGBS) and others produce a higher compressive strength compared to geopolymer produced with non-calcined source material such as kaolin.

Interrelationship of Kaolin, Alkaline Liquid Ratio and

Interrelationship of kaolin to alkaline liquid ratio with hardness and flexural strength was the focus of this work. Therefore kaolin geopolymer paste with varying solid to liquid ratio ranging from 0.7 to 1.1 was prepared. Geopolymer paste was coated on low grade wood substrate prior to Vickers hardness and flexural strength.
