Lime has always been a product extensively used in construction. In fact lime mortar is the only material used in architectural structures which has demonstrated durability for centuries or millenniums. Examples of these are medieval cathedrals as well as Roman constructions.
Nowadays Hydrated Lime (Calcium Hydroxide) continues exercising a fundamental role in numerous building materials such as ready-made mortars, interior and exterior plaster mixes, pavings, coatings, etc.
Calcium Oxide is used for soil stabilization, especially clay soils, during the construction of highways and other civil engineering infrastructures. It has also been demonstrated that the addition of Calcium Hydroxide in asphalt mixes for the use in road building leads to a reduction of its maintenance.
Precipitated Calcium Carbonate (Calprec PR) is integrated into construction sealants and flooring because of its rheological and finishing properties.
