About Calcium Hydroxide. Calcium Hydroxide (a.k.a. Hydrated Lime, Slaked Lime) is an inorganic compound, readily obtained from the reaction of calcium oxide with water, a process called slaking. It is a strong base that has limited water solubility and is, therefore, often used as a suspension. Calcium hydroxide presents alkaline properties and has low cost, is widely used in industrial applications, such as water and industrial waste treatment, refining of beet and sugar cane and in corn treatment.
Chemical Formula. Ca(OH)2
Commercial Grades. technical grade; chemically pure (CP) grade; United States Pharmacopeia (USP) grade; Food Chemical Codex (FCC) grade; building lime; and chemical lime ( maximum 2% of insoluble matter, maximum 3% of magnesium).
Uses. Calcium Hydroxide is used mainly in water and industrial waste treatment; refining of beet and sugarcane,;corn treatment; lime mortar; cements; ammonia gas recovery; lubricants; and pesticides. It is also employed as pH control agent; soil conditioner; filler/neutralizer/buffer in cosmetics; rubber accelerator; firming agent; and disinfectant.
- Calcium oxide (lime) + water (slacking/lime treatment).
Derivatives. bleaching powder; calcium benzoate; calcium bromide; calcium carbonate; calcium chloride; calcium formate; calcium hypochlorite; epichlorohydrin; gypsum; lithium carbonate; lithium hydroxide; propylene dichloride; and propylene oxide.
