Quicklime

An essential material for a wide range of applications

Quicklime as calcium oxide (CaO) or in its slaked form as hydrate - Ca(OH)2 is the base material for various different applications. Quite often it is irreplaceable. For thousands of years people have used lime, and in doing so they have constantly created new products and applications: from paint work to the production of plaster and mortar, in agriculture, forestry and fish farming, for construction, environmental protection, steel production and for use in the paper and chemical industry.

As far as quality is concerned, clients can be reassured by the certification in accordance with EN ISO 9001. Moreover, in 2012 Märker introduced an energy management system according to  EN ISO 50001 in order to ensure the careful use of natural ressources.

Märker  operates state-of-the-art lime kilns in order to produce top quality lime while employing very efficient and eco-friendly techniques. The production range of Märker opens up a wide range of numerous applications.

Quicklime and hydrated lime from Märker are sold by its production / delivery plants Harburg (Bavaria) and Blaustein/Herrlingen (Baden-Wuerttemberg).
