This paper presents test results of the physical and mechanical properties of geopolymers based on conventional fly ash activated at increased temperature with sodium hydroxide, containing glass powder obtained from the recycling of waste glass.
Tests were performed on mortars of a geopolymer binder containing glass powder of various levels of fineness, at quantities ranging from 5 to 95% of the mass of the conventional fly ash. The properties of the geopolymer binder with and without the content of glass powder were determined on the basis of the heat of hydration. The suitability of the application of glass powder in geopolymers was confirmed by results of testing the following parameters using a scanning electron microscope (SEM) and analysis of micro areas (EDS) in geopolymer materials: particle size distribution, density, porosity, X-ray diffraction (XRD). Testing of the compressive strength of the geopolymer mortars was performed after: 1, 7, 14 and 28 days of curing in air-dry conditions. Results of microstructure tests confirm that the glass powder coming from recycled waste glass in presence of the geopolymer binder undergoes reactions of alkaline activation at increased temperature, the products of which are zeolite minerals and sodium silicate gel. On the basis of test results of physical and mechanical properties of the geopolymers, it was proven that the content of glass powder had a beneficial effect on the utility parameters of the obtained material. The aforementioned research confirms the possibility of using waste glass for the production of geopolymer materials applied in the construction industry.
