Lime used in building products is broadly classified as pure, hydraulic, and poor lime; can be natural or artificial; and may be further identified by its magnesium content such as dolomite or magnesium lime. Uses include lime mortar, lime plaster, lime render, lime-ash floors, tabby concrete, whitewash, silicate mineral paint, limestone blocks which may be of many types.

Pure lime is also known as fat, rich, common, air, slaked, slack, pickling, hydrated, and high calcium lime. It consists primarily of calcium hydroxide which is derived by slaking quicklime (calcium oxide), and may contain up to 5% of other ingredients. Pure lime sets very slowly through contact with carbon dioxide in the air and moisture; it is not a hydraulic lime so it will not set under water. Pure lime is pure white and can be used for whitewash, plaster, and mortar.

Pure lime is soluble in water containing carbonic acid, a natural, weak acid which is a solution of carbon dioxide in water and acid rain so it will slowly wash away, but this characteristic also produces autogenously or self-healing process where the dissolved lime can flow into cracks in the material and be redeposit, automatically repairing the crack.
