Sulphur concrete floors
• Sulphur concrete floors comprise elemental sulphur and an inorganic aggregate, usually coarse and fine sand (see section on Sulphur).
• The sulphur concrete can either be poured in situ or precast as floor tiles of any appropriate shape.
• In situ constructions require skill, experience and speed, as the molten sulphur hardens rapidly on cooling.
• Sulphur concrete tiles can be laid in sand beds in the same way as fired clay, concrete and other floor tiles. Further information: Alvaro Ortega, Research Consultant, 3460 Peel Street, Apt. 811, Montreal P.Q., Canada; Bibl. 18.01, 18.04, 18.05, 18.06, 18.07.
