Providing the highest quality lime for a range of sectors on a global scale
Tarmac is the largest manufacturer of lime products in the UK, with products distributed nationally and internationally, both directly to the customer and via a network of distributors. The result is an international reputation for professional service and quality products.
Manufactured from high-purity limestone in Buxton, Derbyshire, the Buxton Lime range includes Limbux hydrated lime and Calbux quicklime. The process involves calcining very pure processed limestone at high temperatures in modern, efficient kilns after which the lime is crushed, screened, hydrated and processed to the required quality and grading profile. Finished products are then used in a wide range of environmental and industrial applications around the world, such as water treatment and sugar refining.
Tarmac’s quality-assured products are supported by experienced technical staff, providing customer consultancy and technical advice, as well as continuous research and product development.
Limbux hydrated lime and Calbux quicklime is sold in bags of 25kg or 1 tonne, with a range of available bag and pallet types, according to customer requirements, and is typically transported internationally in 20 tonne containers. Also available in bulk or larger vessel shipments for greater volume requirements.
