- Type I – High calcium-hydrated lime containing maximum magnesium content, calculated as magnesium oxide, of 4 percent by mass. Compliance with chemical composition requirements shall be determined by use of T 219 (Note 1).
- Type II – Magnesium or dolomitic lime containing magnesium, calculated as magnesium oxide, greater than 4 but no more than 36 percent by mass. Compliance with chemical composition requirements shall be determined by use of ASTM C 25 (Note 2).
