Abstract
New uses for sulfur were developed to take advantage of a projected sulfur surplus. A spray material containing sulfur, talc, fiberglass, and dicyclopentadiene was used to construct a block building. The blocks were surface bonded together for structural stability by spraying with the mixture. Dirt-formed ponds were given an impervious lining by spraying with the material. The potential of low-cost, chemically modified sulfur as a land stabilizer was evaluated. Dicyclopentadiene, dipentene, methylcyclopentadiene, styrene, and an olefinic liquid hydrocarbon were investigated as modifiers. A spray mixture of 7 pct dicyclopentadiene, 1 pct dipentene, and 92 pct sulfur effectively stabilized tailings from wind and rain erosion.
