Calcium Oxide
    #2554091 - 04/13/04 01:13 PM (12 years, 7 months ago)

I just got a bag of 100% calcium oxide, labeled as lime in order to adjust the pH of my casing material, Pro-Moss TBK.

I have no way of testing for pH, so I would like to know if any of you are familiar with using calcium oxide instead of calcium carbonate.

I also don't know how much stronger or weaker CaO would be compared to CaC03, can any of you help out, the search gave me squat.

CaO is MUCH stronger than CaC03, if it comes into your eyes it can cause blindness.

Here are several documents dealing with your question:
