- HYDRATED LIME (Calcium hydroxide — Ca(OH)2)
- Reacting quicklime with water in a hydrator produces calcium hydroxide, commonly referred to as hydrated lime.
- Hydrated lime is used in a variety of industrial applications, including municipal sanitation and water treatment. It is also utilized in highway construction to stabilize expansive clay soils and in asphalt paving as an anti-stripping agent, and hydrate is used in oilfield applications.
