The article presents, based on preliminary research, the possibility of using a geopolymer composite as a protective layer of engineering structures, which protects it against the impact of harmful factors of the surrounding environment as well as the effects of mechanical interactions. The most common solutions of such layers are insulations based on synthetic feeds, bitumens – products obtained in the process of processing crude oil. The ecological aspect of the implementation of geopolymer materials and the process of their production are presented. Technological problems in the application of geopolymer protective layers on an industrial scale were considered. The paper presents the results of own research on the influence of the geopolymer composite layer thickness on adhesion to concrete based on Portland cement, in which the compaction method of the composite was considered.
