Résumé
Mineral polymerization technique has been thought in the past to be a more preferable and environmentally advantageous means of producing construction materials. Based on the technique involved, geopolymeric aluminosilicates materials of appreciable physical and chemical properties to be used as engineering materials are produced. The research here focus on acquiring these properties with more cheaper and commercially available chemicals by the double salts system approach to produce KOH which is the alkaline stabilizing chemical from the reaction of Ca(OH)2 and K2CO3. The research also focuses on the mixing procedure and other parameters such as mixing water, varying curing temperature, duration of curing, the effect of post curing on the specimens produced, weight losses upon curing, and subjecting these specimens to short term and long term durability treatment. Testing of efflorescence and continuous measurement of K+ ions leached-out from the soaked specimens were also performed.
