Utilization of Secondary Sulfur in Construction Materials.
McBee WC; Sullivan TA
Proc 5th Miner Waste Util Symp Chicago Illinois, 1976 Apr; :39-52
Prompted by the continuing domestic demand for construction materials, and attendant regional shortages of cement, asphalt, and mineral aggregates, research conducted by the Bureau of Mines, U.S. Department of the Interior, has resulted in the development of alternative materials containing the potentially overabundant commodity sulfur as an extender or replacement substance. Formulation procedures are described, and the physical characteristics of the resultant sulfur-bearing construction materials are compared with those of their conventional counterparts.
