Description of key information

The water solubility of Sugar Factory Lime has been determined to be 16.3 mg/L of solution at 20 ± 0.5 °C.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Water solubility:
16.3 mg/L
at the temperature of:
20 °C

Additional information

The water solubility of Sugar Factory Lime (SFL) was determined in a GLP study performed in accordance with EU Method A6 (O'Connor and Woolley, 2010). The water solubility was 16.3 mg/L at 20 ± 0.5 °C.

The water solubility of SFL is supported by data on calcium carbonate from a GLP guideline study (Walker and White, 2010) which indicates that calcium carbonate has a water solubility equal to 16.6 mg/L at 20 °C.
