Abstract(s)This paper reports that surface treatment with CaCl2 enhances the bioactivity of a calcined kaolin geopolymer. Calcined kaolin, NaOH solution, sodium silicate solution, and heat curing were used to form geopolymer pastes. A soaked-treatment method was applied to the geopolymer samples using CaCl2 solution as the ion exchange agent. The bioactivity of the material was determined by the simulated body fluid (SBF) in vitro testing method. Scanning electron microscope images showed a dense apatite formation on the treated geopolymer surface after SBF immersion for only 3 days. The CaCl2 treatment promoted compressive strength and enhanced bioactivity by accelerating apatite precipitation and slowing down the rise in pH.
