Abstract

"Lime, considered as a building material, is not usually regarded as comprehending three principal varieties - viz: Common or air lime, Hydraulic lime, and Hydraulic cement.

The common or air lime, is so called because the paste made from it with water will harden only in air. Lime is made by burning limestone in kilns suitably arranged for that purpose. Two classes of such kilns are in general use; the intermittent or flare kiln and the draw or perpetual kiln."--page 1.
