The advent of modern aluminosilicate binders has resulted in practical uses for fly ash, which belongs to the group of secondary mineral raw materials; this provides an interesting alternative to cementitious binders, which have a large carbon footprint. Geopolymers mineral binders with a growing range of applications in construction. Their inorganic, amorphous structure endows them with better resistance to high temperature compared to cementitious binders. In this study, the alkaline activation of aluminosilicate Połaniec Fly Ash made it possible to obtain noncementitious material with compressive strength of 18.5 MPa. The article presents the results of a comparison of characteristics of geopolymer mortar and Portland cement mortar after thermal exposure.
