Today, quicklime and hydrated lime are used in the construction industry primarily as a stabilizing aggregate or base for roads and foundations. Lime is added to low quality soils to produce a usable base and sub base. It is also used in the production of cement and concrete.
Additionally, hydrated lime is used as a valuable anti-stripping additive for asphalt pavements – it reduces age hardening, helps resist fracture growth and rutting at low temperatures, and improves moisture resistance and durability. Another notable use for in the construction industry is the production of Autoclaved Aerated Concrete Blocks.
Additionally, pulverized limestone is used as a soil conditioner to neutralize acidic soils.
