The advent of modern aluminosilicate binders has resulted in practical uses for fly ash, which belongs to the group of secondary mineral raw materials; this provides an interesting alternative to cementitious binders, which have a large carbon footprint. Geopolymers mineral binders with a growing range of applications in construction. Their inorganic, amorphous structure endows them with better resistance to high temperature compared to cementitious binders. In this study, the alkaline
