Abstract
In cooperation with the U.S. Department of the Interior, Bureau of Mines, and the Sulphur Institute, Asarco Incorporated tested components of sulfur concrete, both precast and poured in place, in corrosive environments of sulfuric acid. Favorable endurance of these samples led to a full-scale cooperative demonstration project, which was the rehabilitation of an electrolytic zinc cellhouse basement floor of approximately 21,000 square feet. Sulfur concrete utilizing an aggregate gradation of minus 3/8-inch and minus 1/8- inch materials was produced in a portable asphalt patch mix plant. Mixing and placing operations were conducted without problems. Economics of sulfur concrete versus portland cement concrete are highly variable. Total costs were approximately 15 pct higher than for portland cement. Potential uses are electrolytic cells, holding tanks and vats, and floor and basin areas exposed to acidic environments.
