Proc Sulphur-81 Internat Conf on Sulphur Calgary Alberta Canada 1981 May; :22 pages
As part of a program to find uses for plentiful resources, the Bureau of Mines has developed a sulfur concrete technology in which chemically modified elemental sulfur is utilized with suitable mineral aggregates to formulate durable, corrosion-resistant materials of construction. This paper describes the chemical, physical, and mechanical characteristics of both sulfur cement and concretes, and the current state-of-the-art for the manufacture of the materials. Specialized use applications in chemical and metallurgical process environments and current performance data are described.
