Neutra Lime is a pulverized calcium carbonate powder generally finer than 2mm that is primarily used to manage and neutralize acid sulphate soils during construction projects.
Neutra Lime represents a cost-effective means to address the potential issues caused by acid sulphate soils including damage to concrete and steel reinforcing that can occur in situ. When choosing Neutra Lime or other Graymont neutralizing agents, a suitably qualified professional should be consulted to establish the best product for the soil conditions present. Careful consideration should be given to chemical and physical factors including site typography, rainfall, site drainage, soil pH, other chemical characteristics of host soils, ambient moisture content, target pH values and residual alkalinity that might remain after treatment.
Neutra Lime is supplied in bulk format.
Neutra Lime is available across the East coast of Australia. Please contact our sales team to enquire about Neutra Lime.
In some situations, Quicklime or Hydrated Lime may also be used where acid sulphate soils are encountered. These highly alkaline materials should only be used under carefully controlled conditions and those using it, including, specifiers and contractors should ensure the correct material and quantity is specified after taking into account chemical and physical factors including site typography, rainfall, site drainage, soil pH, other chemical characteristics of host soils, ambient moisture content, target pH values and residual alkalinity that might remain after treatment.
Quicklime and Hydrated Lime are highly alkaline materials and users should consult the Safety Data Sheet for these products. Both materials will generate heat when exposed to water and can present environmental risk where excess alkalinity is not consumed during the process of slaking or mixing with soils.
