Application area up to 80°C

Sulphur concrete was tested  for compressive and tensile strength as well as  its dynamic E-module and creep (1 year). This within a range of temperature between 20 an 80°C in order to check its performance in hot environmental temperatures and its contact with fluids at high temperatures etc. The results showed that with repeated fluctuations in temperature the mechanical characteristics start decreasing above 80°C.  Within this range of temperature the performance of sulphur concrete is similar to or better than cement concrete. Incidental higher temperatures are permitted if they are of a short or fleeting nature.
