Abstract:
Lime is the product obtained from the calcination of limestones. When moistened with water it evolves great heat with extension of volume, resolving into fine powder. Upon the addition of more water it assumes with similar phenomena a paste-like consistency. Lime is placed on the market either in lumps or, when hydrated, in powder form and also as slaked lime in pastry form, depending on local requirements.
