Potassium silicate is widely used in 3D printing technology.
Noble Alchem provides Potassium Silicate powder for various industries like for geopolymer.
According to Prof. Joseph Davidovits, when the silicate is mixed with fly ash or other aluminosilicate material, it forms a cement-like strong building material. It’s called “geopolymer” and can be made using industry by-products together with alkali silicates. It is used as an activator for high volume fly ash material. Geopolymer has been used in many other applications such as coating, spraying, plastering and more recently in 3D concrete printing.
