Overview

There two significant drawbacks associated with the production of conventional geopolymer concrete. Firstly, dealing with a high concentration of corrosive and viscous alkaline solutions represents one of the main barriers to commercial applications. Secondly, the need for heat curing prevents the broad application of fly ash-based geopolymer concrete since this type of concrete cannot be cured at a lower ambient temperature.

Mahya discusses various method to improve geo-polymerisation at room temperature by incorporating slag, high calcium fly ash, calcium hydroxide and OPC, as additional calcium sources in geopolymer mixes.
