In recently years, geopolymer or polysialate composites have been developed and applied for a variety of fields. They are known as inorganic matrices composites, which are fabricated and cured at room temperature or thermoseted in a simple autoclave. Geopolymer composites provide an excellent opportunity for achieving the goal of producing low cost high temperature resistant composite. The aim of this study is an investigation and comparing the flexural properties of geopolymer composites after reinforcements were influenced by plasma treatment with original fibre fabric. And preliminary results of the improvement in tensile strength, Young’s modulus, elongation of E-glass fibre fabric due to plasma treatment are studied in this paper. Many reinforcements and geopolymer matrices are now available, but our works are focused on geopolymer composite Q17, Q13K-1 combination with E-glass fibre fabric which was investigated, fabrication procedures together with their specific properties of these materials have been evaluated, compared and discussed.
