Discover the multiple functionalities of lime and minerals
Lime bonds with sand to form hydrated calcium silicates to produce strong and durable building blocks.
Hydrated lime reacts with atmospheric CO2 and hardens mortars. In contact with pozzolanic materials, lime helps solidify mortars and plasters.
When used as an aggregate, limestone forms a skeleton of concrete structures.
Lime is part of the rising process in the manufacture of aerated autoclaved concrete.
