Lime is an agglomerate product/natural chemical reagent, obtained through the de-carbonation of limestone, by being subjected to high temperatures (900°C) in specific kilns for the purpose. This operation causes the following chemical reaction:
From the burning of the limestone (stonework type) in ancient kilns, quicklime forms in blocks. Blocks sized approximately 20-30 cm in diameter. The product can be sold in packages of 5 kg, 30 kg, plastic barrels and in Bulk.
This type of lime is the result of its manufacture in industrial kilns, thereby initially obtaining a size of 4-10 cm. Other sizes can be obtained in accordance with customer demands. The product can be sold in Bulk and in Big Bags.
After it leaves the kiln, granulated quicklime is sent to a milling process, so as to be reduced into particles of some microns, turning it into a fine and homogenous powder. The product can be sold in packages of 5 kg, 20 kg, 40 kg, in Bulk and in Big Bags.
