Whitewash is a natural product made of calcium hydroxide and water. It's a finely dispersed suspension that remains in solution.
- a natural product
- made of calcium hydroxide (Ca(OH)₂) + water (H₂O)
- a finely disperes suspension
Our facility in Balve produces whitewash from calcium hydroxide and water on two production lines. The limestone (calcium carbonate) is burned at high temperatures, ground into chalk and doused with water.
The calcium carbonate then reacts with the water to produce calcium hydroxide. This is then diluted with water and processed into whitewash. What makes our whitewash from our own production special is its highly specific surface, achieved by continued grinding. This results in an exceptionally finely dispersed suspension that remains in solution, even after longer service times.
- Potable water treatment
- The metal industry
- In wastewater treatment plants
- Further industries
We supply whitewash in ready-to-use condition in two different concentrations, according to your needs:
- 20% whitewash (no added grinding aids)
- 45% whitewash (contains additives)
Compared to dry calcium hydroxide, the suspension is completely dust-free, clean and easy to use.
If you would like to buy whitewash for your industrial application, please contact our sales team. We would be happy to make you an individual offer and advise you personally on our products.
