DEVELOPMENT AND TESTING OF SUPERIOR SULFUR CONCRETES

The preparation and testing of sulfur concretes were investigated by the Bureau of Mines as one part of a sulfur utilization program. Modified sulfur concretes were developed by reacting the sulfur with unsaturated hydrocarbons before mixing the molten sulfur and hot aggregate. Physical properties of optinum mixes for both sulfur concrete and modified sulfur concretes, prepared with various aggregates, were determined and compared with Portland cement concretes. The resultant modified sulfur concretes had properties equal to or better than those of unmodified sulfur concretes and Portland cement concrete depending on the types of aggregate used.
