Abstract

There are large volumes of fly ash, slag and silica fume produced in the world. The waste disposal to the landfill is problematic and causes many environmental issues. The objective of this work is to demonstrate how fly ash, slag and silica fume can be used to produce alkali-activated cementitious composite mortar (AACCM) used for insulating walls. The combination of both polymers and alkali-activated cementitious material (AACM) made from fly ash, slag powder and silica fume enables a full composite action. The polymers include Methyl Cellulose Ether (MCE), Polyvinyl Alcohol (PA), and Calcium Formate (CF). The thermal insulating aggregates were cemented into insulating mortar under the com..
