Abstract: From decades it has been recognized that Geopolymer will considerably replace the role of cement in the construction industry. In general, Geopolymer exhibits the property of the peak compressive strength, minimal creep and shrinkage. In this current research paper, Geopolymer mortar is prepared by using GGBS and Fly ash. The mix proportions are of (100-60)%GGBS with Fly ash by 10% replacement. The alkali activators Na0H and Na2Sio3 are used in the study for two different molarities of 4&8. The ratio to Sodium silicates to sodium hydroxide is maintained from 1.5, 2, 2.5 & 3 were used. Mortars are prepared and studied the effect of molarities of alkali activators in their setting times and strengths.
Keywords: Geo polymer, Alkali Activators, Molarities, Compressive Strength.
