For Use In Cement, Lime & Sand Mortars
Rugby® Hydrated Lime is a non-hydraulic hydrated lime which complies with the high calcium classification of BS EN 459-1 CL 90-S.
It is used extensively in agricultural/horticultural applications, and building construction.
Rugby® Hydrated Lime is manufactured by calcining a high calcium limestone in carefully controlled conditions.
The quicklime produced is then crushed and hydrated to produce a fine powder with a loose bulk density of 600 kg/m3 (typical neutralising value 74% CaO).
Delivery & Storage
Delivered by road in a curtain-sided vehicle, the standard load size is 28 - 30 tonnes. All CEMEX drivers are fully trained and experienced in the safe delivery and unloading of our vehicles, but please do all you can to ensure your site is accessible with no obstructions.
Rugby® Hydrated Lime is available in paper sacks delivered as shrink-hooded, 1.5 tonne modules on non-chargeable pallets, or in smaller quantities as required. Rugby® Hydrated Lime should be stored off the ground, in clean, dry conditions and covered with a plastic sheet. Bags should be used in strict rotation to minimise risk of air setting due to excessive storage times
Health & Safety
Rugby® Hydrated Lime is an alkaline substance which can cause burns and should therefore be used and handled with care. Safety instructions can be found in our Health and Safety Data Sheets (available on request) and also on the back of each bag. These instructions should be brought to the attention of anyone who handles or uses our products.
