Hydrated Lime (50 lb)
Hydrated lime, sometimes called slaked lime, is quicklime to which water has been added until all the oxides of calcium and magnesium have been converted to hydroxides. The water has slaked quicklime's thirst. Hydrated lime made from pure calcium oxide will be roughly 74 percent calcium oxide and 24 percent chemically combined water. Dolomitic hydrated lime will have about 48 percent calcium oxide, 34 percent magnesium oxide and 17 percent water. Hydrated lime is white and powdery.
