GEOKRETE - Geopolymer
From Repair Materials
A Geopolymer is a formulated mortar comprised of aluminosilicate powder with an alkaline activator to form a monolithic mineral polymer with ceramic properties. A geopolymer is not an epoxy or a plastic blended with aggregate. GEOKRETE® Geopolymer cures through a process of polycondensation and possesses proven, high early and long-term compressive strength. Additionally, with superior bond strength, GEOKRETE® liners can be applied in layers and under multiple mobilizations. The chemical composition of GEOKRETE® Geopolymer makes it inherently resistant to the microbial induced corrosion prevalent in many sewer environments. Geopolymers contain greatly reduced concentrations of calcium hydrates, commonly found in cementitious mortars, furthering the suitability of GEOKRETE® in low PH environments.
GEOKRETE® is specially designed for ease of use with mechanical pumping, spraying and spin-casting equipment.
Leaking, corroded or compromised tunnels, pipe, manholes, wet wells and other similar structures where advanced design engineering is required.
Features and benefits
- Precision-blended and mixed material allows for high measures of quality control
- Forms a monolithic, inorganic polymer structure for much higher resistance to acids and greater surface durability
- Cures through polycondensation and bonds to itself — the liner can be applied in layers and under multiple mobilizations
- Easily navigates pipe deformities, deep pipes, pipe bends, non-round pipes, slopes and separated joints
