Abstract:
In recent years, sulphur concrete has proven to be capable of withstanding attack by some of the most aggressive chemicals used in industry. This fast setting, acid and salt resistant concrete is well suited for use in the mineral processing and fertilizer production industries. This paper briefly describes the properties, production, application and performance of this new construction material, with references to actual commercial installations and reviews the long term durability of these projects in harsh chemical environments.
