  Calcium Hydroxide
Calcium Hydroxide is a chemical compound with the chemical formula Ca(OH)2.
It is a colourless crystal or white powder, and is created when calcium oxide (called lime or quicklime) is slaked with water. It can also be created by mixing an aqueous solution of calcium chloride and an aqueous solution of sodium hydroxide.
A traditional name for calcium hydroxide is slaked lime, or Hydrated Lime. If heated, calcium hydroxide decomposes into calcium oxide and water.


Because of its strong basic properties, calcium hydroxide has varied uses, such as:

As reagent:
  • In the tanning industry for neutralization of extra acid

  • In the petroleum refining industry for the manufacture of additives to oils (alkilsalicatic, sulphatic, fenatic)

  • In the chemical industry for manufacture of calcium stearate

  • In the food industry for processing water (for alcoholic and soft drinks)

  • For clearing a brine of carbonates of calcium and magnesium in the manufacture of salt for food and pharmacopoeia

As filler:
  • In the petrochemical industry for manufacturing solid oil of various marks

  • In the manufacture of brake pads

  • In the manufacture of ebonite

  • For preparation of dry mixes for painting and decorating

  • In manufacturing mixes for pesticides

  • A dressing in paste form used for anti-microbial effect during a dental root canal procedure
