After an extensive preliminary investigation of the structural properties of SQAPE geopolymer, a prestressed construction has been realised for the first time. Previous tests and practical examples have already shown that this concrete can also be used for constructive applications. Hereby, taking into account the different properties that the concrete may have compared to cement concrete.
Moreover, in this construction, 100% use was made of recycled sand and granulate. Of course, the leaching of the cured product was also taken into account.
In addition to the sustainability aspect, it is important for clients that it can also be functionally equivalent to cement concrete. Besides accelerated tests, the construction will be closely monitored in the coming years.
