Modification for Better

Workability

Stabilization

    • Improved geotechnical properties for better strength & compaction
    • Short & long-term strength gains for extended pavement life
    • Permanent reduction in shrink-swell potential and soil plasticity
    • Increased bearing capacity of soil can reduce the layer thickness of base and pavement
    • Stabilized soils can act a moisture barrier

Anti-strip for Asphalt

    • Hydrate lime acts as a mineral filler, stiffening the asphalt binder and hot mix asphalt (HMA)
    • Reduces stripping to extend pavement life
    • Improves resistance to fracture growth in low temperatures
    • Improves moisture stability and durability
    • Alters oxidation chemistry in the binder to reduce age hardening
    • Alters clay fines to improve moisture stability and durability

Save time & money

    • 50% – 70% Cost Savings when comparing Chemical Stabilization Vs. Remove & Replace for Construction Applications
    • Reduced transport costs associated with off-site disposal of contaminated waste streams
    • Solutions to meet a variety of budget & application specific requirements
    • See for yourself! Check out our drying video to learn more!

Quicklime (Calcium Oxide)

Quicklime provides the fastest drying to keep projects on time and on budget. Quicklime is also highly effective at reducing soil PI to reduce shrink/swell even after freeze-thaw & wet-dry cycles. In environmental applications, quicklime will adjust the pH of the waste stream, rendering heavy metals insoluble. Quicklime is made from high quality, natural deposits of limestone and tested to ensure consistent, high-performance.

 

  • Highest available CaO for the fastest drying of wet soils, sediments and waste streams
  • Improved soil conditions via PI adjustment to reduce shrink / swell
  • Extended pavement life via short & long-term strength gains
  • pH adjustment for Hazardous & Non-hazardous waste streams rendering heavy metals insoluble
  • DOT Approved per ASTM & AASHTO Requirement, click here to see our full list of DOT approved states

Quicklime Fines

  • Sizing: Very fine powder
  • Delivery: Pneumatic Truck, supersacks, EPA-Tarp Compliant Dump Trailer

Pebble Quicklime

  • Size: Courser than quicklime fines for reduced dusting
  • Delivery: EPA-Tarp compliant dump trailer or supersacks

 

Mintek is the exclusive supplier of Calciment™ a hybrid of Portland Cement and quicklime.

  • A unique blend of CaO and pozzolans
  • Pozzolans create the cementitious properties that allow Calciment to stabilize problematic soils, sediments and waste streams
  • Available CaO accelerates the drying / dewatering process, particularly in cold and/or wet climates
  • Modifies soil by adjusting the PI of high clay soils to eliminate shrink / swell after freeze / thaw & wet / dry cycles.
  • Used on thousands of projects across the country
  • An economical alternative to traditional reagents
  • Custom blend options available to meet your specific job site requirements
  • All Calciment products are LEED-certified for pre-consumer products
  • DOT Approved, click here to see our full list of DOT approvals with more to come!
Hydrate Lime

Formed when quicklime is mixed with water, also known as the slaking process, this results in calcium hydroxide, or Ca(OH)2. Hydrate is the least dense of our products and is physically a very fine white powder.

Hydrate can be used to:

  • Stabilize subbase soils in construction applications to strengthen and modify the soil to extend the pavement life
  • As an additive in asphalt for anti-stripping while stiffening the binders in asphalt
  • Improved resistance to rutting and moisture damage
  • Better life cycle cost-benefit ratios than liquid antistrips
  • Greater Tensile Strength Ratios after repeated freeze thaw cycles when compared to untreated and liquid treated asphalts
  • DOT Approved, click here to see our full list of DOT approvals with more to come!
