Standard Specification for Quicklime and Hydrated Lime for Soil Stabilization
|Publication Date:||1 October 2018|
|ICS Code (Cement. Gypsum. Lime. Mortar):||91.100.10|
This specification pertains to quicklime and hydrated lime, either high calcium, dolomitic, or magnesian lime, for use in stabilization of soils (see Note 2).
NOTE 1-Quicklime and hydrated lime act upon clay soils and may render such soils suitable for highway construction and for other loadbearing applications. In most cases, lime causes finely divided clay particles to agglomerate into coarser particles which improve load-bearing properties and subsequently the lime-treated soil hardens by chemical reaction.
NOTE 2-No attempt is made to present requirements for by-product lime, commercial lime slurry, and so forth. Specification requirements for these materials could be better determined on a local basis.
The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.
This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
