    Experience to date shows sulfur concrete to have many advantages over hydraulic cement concrete for sewer pipe. Its durability, high corrosion-resistance, impermeability and high mechanical strength, combined with its high volume production capability, make it an economical, long-lasting material. Other properties include high abrasion resistance and extremely high resistance to fatigue.

    Sulfur concrete sewer pipe can be dry-cast, wet-cast or spun using conventional concrete pipe molds. The hot mix develops its strength simply on cooling, no curing being required.

    Details of mix design and preparation are described. Examples of commercial-scale production of pipes and tanks are presented.

    The need for modified ASTM Standards for such pipe and related products is discussed.
