Abstract
Early in 1972, the Bureau of Mines became concerned with forecasts of surplus sulfur resulting from environmental emission collection systems and initiated a research program to develop and test new uses for sulfur to utilize this abundant material and conserve scarce or energy-intensive materials. This report surveys the present status of these newly developed sulfur uses. Utilization in construction offers the most practical approach to new, large-scale uses for sulfur. Sulfur can be used as a direct substitute for asphaltic and portland cements and for mineral aggregates. Sulfur- asphalt paving and sulfur-concrete materials are described, and their properties are compared with those of conventional construction materials. Development of sulfur foams, mortars, spray coatings, and surface-bonding materials is described. Testing of sulfur products in the field and the possible commercialization of the new product are discussed.
