Lightweight insulating geopolymer material based on expanded perlite
May 27-June 1, 2018
Expanded perlite, owing to its lightweight and excellent thermal insulating properties, has been extensively used in different industrial sectors to produce self-standing insulating boards bonded with various organic polymers or calcium-silicates. In order to improve the high temperature behavior and mechanical performances of such materials inorganic binders, such as geopolymers, can be regarded as a promising alternative.
