Geopolymers are finding application in many industries including automobile, aviation, civil engineering, concrete manufacture, building and repairing, ground stabilisation and many others. An interesting example in civil engineering is the Toowoomba, Brisbane West Wellcamp Airport, the greenest airport in the world, where 100,000 tonnes of Geopolymer concrete was used for taxiways, hangars, aprons, turning node, culverts, barriers, road works, sewer tanks, bridge, and panels for the terminal building. Watch this video produced for the Geopolymer Institute in 2015. Geopolymers are now well proven in many fields and applications, and are the building material of the future.
Geopolymer cements and concretes for building and repairing infrastructure have very high early strength, their setting times can be entirely controlled, and they remain intact for a very long time without the need for repair.
With Geopolymer foams substrates can be strengthened, voids can be filled, slabs can be lifted/jacked, and joints can be stabilised with a minimal of disruption to or loss of production.
FCS Concrete Repairs are experienced in the use of such materials.
