Dry and modify cold, wet soils with lime-based products

Weather is unpredictable and can feel like a gamble, which means your productivity and profitability can be seriously affected. Our lime-based products dry and modify cold, wet soils allowing you to keep projects on schedule even in the rainy months. Quicklime and Calciment® LKD have a high percent of free calcium oxide which means faster drying of wet, sloppy soils allowing you to finish more jobs in less time. Both quicklime and Calciment® LKD, a hybrid that delivers the benefits of quicklime and Portland cement, provide heat generation for fast drying as well as cementitious properties for strength gains. When comparing lime-based solutions to other alternative reagents or stabilization methods, such as cut and fill, Mintek’s products are extremely favorable as demonstrated by the widespread acceptance and use of Mintek’s lime-based products.
