AbstractNew types of composites have been produced by the recently developed technique of impregnating porous materials with polymer and sulphur. Physical properties have been found to increase by several hundred per cent and large improvements in water impermeability and resistance to corrosion have been achieved. For wide-spread practical applications, however, more understanding of these types of systems is needed as well as assurances on their long-term durability. This paper presents the results of sulphur impregnation of a variety of portland cement-based porous systems and porous glass. A high degree of impregnation was achieved and thus bodies approximating non-porous uniformly impregnated specimens were obtained; an attempt is made here to correlate Young's modulus and microhardness with basic properties of the impregnated body.
