STARcrete™, a STable Acid Resistant, sulfur-based concrete, has extreme
corrosion resistance, high physical strength, high fatigue resistance
and low water permeability. It is well suited for specific applications
where its unique properties are needed.
Both the properties and extreme durability of STARcrete™
result from the incorporation of a small quantity of a proprietary
sulfur modifier called STX™. This ingredient prevents the formation of
macro sulfur crystals. The result is a concrete based on stable,
orthorhombic sulfur with greatly enhanced durability.

cement concrete, view the deterioration photo in the PROPERTIES
STARcrete™, and its predecessor, SulfurcreteŽ is the
original commercial sulfur concrete, developed by Dr. Alan H. Vroom of
Sulphur Innovations Ltd., and was first marketed in Canada in 1976.
