Literature Review On Geopolymer Mortar Using Agricultural Waste As Precursor

[Full Text]



Faiz Sulthan



Geopolymer, fly ash, bagasse ash, palm oil fuel ash, rice husk ash.



Alternative replacement material cement as a binder in concrete that is currently developed is the geopolymer material. Geopolymer is the result of the polymerization process material that contains silica (Si) and aluminum (Al) derived from natural materials, agricultural waste or industrial waste. Material results of agricultural wastes that can be used as precursors include rice husk ash, bagasse ash and palm oil fuel ash. Agricultural waste materials eligible to be processed into the material forming geopolymer. Chemical compounds criteria based on testing X-Ray Fluorescence (XRF) and refer to ASTM C 618 is known that industrial waste materials are feasible to be developed as a precursor. Criteria for the mechanical properties of materials such as mortar compressive strength testing also showed good results, geopolymer using 100% bagasse ash can also achieve the compressive strength of mortar at 18.34 MPa. For materials rice husk ash and palm oil fuel ash is only used by 50% and mixed with 50% fly ash, compressive strength results showed with rice husk ash of 21.50 MPa and palm oil fuel ash of 20.70 MPa.
