Crushed quicklime

 
 

Quicklime combines the advantages such as simple preparation, multiple uses, natural and eco-friendly and low cost.

 

Properties and Uses

• Fight soil acidity and increases the pH of acid soils (Ph<6) for agricultural land, gardens, spread lime after plowing burying slightly. Do not apply lime at the same time as manure or compost. Annual treatment. (10kg/100m2).

.

• Recalcified and greatly increases the strength of clays (Flocculation of the clay). Then increase the dosage : 20kg/100m2.

.

• Destroys foam and increases the pH. The foam grass thrives acidity and decalcification of soils. Raking the foam when dry and blackish appearance. (20kg/100m2)

.

Cleans parts water, ponds, pools and wells (1,5 kg/10 m2)

.

Absorbs moisture in the old residential houses ; half fill a container and repeat when the slaked lime (white and large).

.

Bleached tree trunks, livestock premises and other buildings thanks to its antiseptic qualities (making a whitewash).

.

Disinfects grasslands : so are avoided and eliminated many parasitic diseases of livestock (fluke, lungworm, strongylosis...)

.

Protects wood : cover the beams, planks and wooden doors with a quicklime milk.

Remove lime after drying: This operation has the distinction of blocking tannin wood and making old.

.

Restoration : classic restoration of the ancient heritage. Can be tinted. Suitable for your interior renovations but also for your exterior siding.

 

Characteristic

Transformation

Our quicklime, natural and ecological product, is the result of cooking (roasting) with coal from a limestone (about 100/120 mm and very pure - 95% CaCO3 in our quarry) at a temperature of about 1100°C for 48 hours in an oven for 10m high. It occurs a chemical reaction, the stone kept the same physical appearance but it has lost 44% of its weight in CO2, and its strength is weaker : it is quicklime rock that we grind later.

 

Carbonatation

Hardening of the lime is made by absorbing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, hence its name. It is customary to say that the lime "dryer in contact with air" .
The speed of this reaction obviously depends on the humidity of the environment. Water vapor binds with atmospheric carbon dioxide and form carbonic acid lime will then fix the carbon dioxide content in the acid : carbonation is at work, lime changes state to transform new limestone.

 

History of Lime

Lime has been used for thousands of years (about 2000 years before the Christian era). Calcined limestone blocks were embedded in the walls of some fortified places. The lime is used for its properties since antiquity, it is involved in the implementation of construction mortars, plaster and whitewash on the walls. It served also protect fruit trees or to fight against the putrefying corpses (epidemic).
