Slaked lime (Calcium hydroxide)

Saber Fazer

Slaked lime or builder’s lime is the current name for Calcium hydroxide, one of the ingredients necessary to the creation of the 1-2-3 organic indigo vat. Calcium hydroxide is responsible for raising the pH of the vat, making the indigo reduction possible. At Saber Fazer we also use calcium hydroxide to assist in the indigo pigment extraction process from our own indigo plants.

Slaked lime is available in 100gr bags.
Slaked lime must be store in hermetic bags to prevent its oxidation. Alternatively, it can be stored indefinitely as a paste.
