Pumice-lime / Scoria-lime — 6 Comments

  1. I found a recipe for pumice geopolymer http://www.mendeley.com/research/investigating-the-possibility-of-utilizing-pumicetype-natural-pozzonal-in-production-of-geopolymer-cement/ which uses pumice, Lye (sodium hydroxide NaOH), and Sodium Silicate (Na2SiO3) The sodium silicate is the problem here in that to make it, there is a process where it gets heated in a furnace. So although mostly this recipe is low temp, all of it is not. The pumice geopolymer however shows matching strength of portland cement after 28 days. Here is one recipe I found to make the sodium silicate….. maybe someone could come up with a better/easier recipe for it?

  2. Here where I live, I have only seen Lime Type S in a solid bag so I dont know what color or texture it is without buying it and taking my chances. It is about $10.00 US dollars for a 50lb bag
