Use Of Quicklime

Quicklime is a widely used chemical compound used in a variety of markets that surround our everyday life such as construction, environmental, oil and gas and industrial processes. 

In the construction market, quicklime is highly effective at reducing soil plasticity index, reducing the shrink/swell potential and resisting potentially harmful freeze-thaw and wet-dry cycles. 

In environmental applications, quicklime will adjust the pH of waste streams, reducing heavy metals solubility. 

In the industrial markets, quicklime makes the air we breathe cleaner, removes impurities in steelmaking processes, and makes the water we drink safer.
