Ready made suspension of calcium hydroxide in water

“Kalic” is a “milk of lime”, a suspension of calcium hydroxide. Unlike “normal” milk of lime, “Kalic” is stable in suspension and very fast reacting, making it easy to use with simple inexpensive equipment for storage & dosing.

Two grades of Kalic are available;

Kalic : 18% w/w suspension , extremely fine particle size and very reactive. Widely used in potable water treatment as it contains no chemical additives

Kalic HS : 45% w/w suspension, stable and fast reacting. Contains chemical stabiliser and viscosity additives. Kalic HS is primarly intended for effluent and waste water treatment systems. Read More
