Abstract: Waste perlite can be reacted with alkaline solutions to form crystalline zeolite 4A and other minor crystalline phases. The fine majority fraction of the waste was fairly reactive and the coarse fraction largely acted as a filler. This geopolymer had poor compressive strength, but when perlite was used in conjunction with flyash, geopolymers of acceptable mechanical properties could be made. Perlite shows significant reaction with 10 Mol/L NaOH solution at ˜70°C, with hydroxysodalite appearing as a reaction product. © 2009, The Australian Ceramic Society
