GUIDE FOR MIXING AND PLACING SULFUR CONCRETE IN CONSTRUCTION
Sulfur concrete construction materials are now used in many specialized applications throughout industry and transportation. They are currently used primarily in areas where conventional materials like portland cement concrete (PCC) fail, such as acidic and saline chemical environments. These new construction materials are thermoplastic and achieve compressive strength in excess of 9000 psi within one day of casting. The materials are impervious to moisture permeation and extremely resistant to attack by mineral acids and salts. This guide includes information on historical background as well as a user's guide to sulfur concrete construction.
