Topic: AF02T010
Budget: 08/23/04 - 08/23/06

Geopolymer cements (GPs) possess the ability to quickly form high-strength, thermally-stable, and near-net shape structures at room temperature. Their chemical nature enables them to bond strongly to both metal and ceramic parts acting as refractory glue. Through our work in the Phase I STTR, a detailed understanding of the basic chemistry, stru...

Phase 1 STTR

Budget: 09/09/02 - 09/09/03

Ceramic polymers or "geopolymers" are amorphous to semi-crystalline three dimensional alumino-silicate materials resulting from geochemistry. "Geopolymerisation" is the chemical reaction between various aluminosilicate oxides (Al+3 in Iv, V, or Vi fold coordination) with silicates under highly alkaline conditions, yielding polymeric Si-O-Al-O b...
