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, due to its alkaline properties and its 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; building lime; USP; FCC; chemical lime (<2% insoluble matter, <3% magnesium); CP
Uses. Calcium Hydroxide is used mainly in: 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. Calcium Hydroxide is use as raw material in the production of the following 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.
