Abstract:There is a growing interest in rapid-setting and high-strength materials of construction that can also reduce the rising costs of maintenance and improve productivity. The Sulphur Institute, in cooperation with the Bureau of Mines and a small group of dedicated construction contractors, has encouraged research and development activities to devise new and advanced sulfur construction materials. Sulfur polymer cement concrete (SC) is used in hostile chemical environments where corrosion due to acid and/or salt exposure results in failure of such conventional materials as portland cement concrete. SC is also finding valuable uses in other applications. SC is gaining recognition in the increasing market for corrosion-resistant materials. Examples of construction and maintenance projects utilizing SC are described for chemical environments encountered during production of sulfuric acid, ammonium sulfate, phosphoric acid, potash, and other fertilizer materials, and compared with the performance of conventional construction materials. SC materials show no signs of deterioration due to acid and salt corrosion after approximately 9 years of industrial testing. New and expanding applications for SC are also explored. In addition to the summary of industrial projects, newly developed construction equipment, SC precast production, and other new and innovative applications are presented. 140-393
