The production of geopolymeric materials is a great challenge when it comes to the process of dosing and mixing the materials called activators and precursors, in addition, they have great potential for incorporating waste into their constitution. The objective of this work was to evaluate the different ways of mixing the constituents of the geopolymer materials, evaluating the influence of the variations in the mixing process, molding and curing temperature of the mixtures, incorporating the glass waste as an activator of the mixture with a molar ratio of 3.5. Prismatic specimens were made and properties such as mechanical resistance to flexion, linear shrinkage and water absorption were evaluated for each condition evaluated. It can be concluded that the order of insertion of the components in the mixture, as well as the molding mode and cure temperature directly influence the technological properties of the specimens.
