Sulfur (S)

Sulfur (S) is an element with several allotropes, the most common, S₈, appears as a yellow, odorless, and brittle crystalline solid at room temperature. It is not reflective, has a relatively low melting point, and is a good electrical insulator. Sulfur is so widely used in industrial processes that its consumption often is regarded as a reliable indicator of industrial activity.

Purity: 85% – 99.9%
Typical Applications

Most sulfur is used in the production of sulfuric acid (H₂SO₄ ), which is an important chemical product used in the production of fertilizers. Sulfur also is used in rubber vulcanization, soap making, detergents, cement, electrical insulators, plastics, explosives, bleaches, dyes, drugs, paints, paper, and petroleum refining. Sulfur has medicinal properties and is used to eliminate toxins and calm the symptoms of skin diseases.

Packaging Options

Bags, drums, bulk bags & loose bulk

Sustainable Qualities

Sulfur is considered a sustainable material due to its abundance in nature and its ability to be recycled and reused. It is a non-metallic element found in many natural deposits and produced as a byproduct of oil and gas refining. Additionally, Sulfur can be recovered from waste streams such as coal-fired power plants and used in a variety of applications, including the production of fertilizers, detergents, and pharmaceuticals. Its versatile properties and sustainable sourcing and recycling make Sulfur a valuable component of a circular economy.
