Quicklime, CaO, calcium oxide

Quicklime is produced by calcining limestone at high temperature. Depending on calcination parameters, we obtain a variety of qualities of quicklime (reactive quicklime, controlled temperature quicklime, retarded lime).

Slaked lime, hydrated lime, Ca(OH)2, calcium hydroxide

Slaked or hydrated lime is obtained by adding water to quicklime, which produces various ranges of lime (standard slaked lime, specific surface lime, etc.).

Lime for road surfaces

For road-related applications we select qualities of lime according to the type of use, and in particular we have a low-dust lime.
