Default lime What type ?

I don't know if this is the, right spot for this post . I am trying to learn about lime ,doing on line research, but I am getting very confused.
An acquaintance had mentioned, adding lime to cement would slow down the setting process . Would any one know the proper type ?

I like it, I keep a supply in my truck's tool box along with some ether, a shovel, zip ties, and a shovel.

Are you doing stone or brick work? What’s the project? And how much weight is it going to carry?

"Garden lime" (AG Lime) is Calcium Carbonate.

"Hydrated lime" is Calcium Hydroxide.

They aren't always interchangeable.

No weight at all , I was going to add it in to waterproofing cement.
When it is warm out, it is very hard to work with. Sets very quick, and almost always cracks . Some one had mentioned, to add lime to it, and slow it down. Did not mention which, there is more than one type out there. If some one could give me a few links, for some thing they know of that would be great .Would this be adequate

Before chemical companies started to supply agricultural lime, people burned limestone, coal and wood in HUGE kilns, and then spread the result on their farms to condition the soil.

If you are trying to increase the workability time of the concrete,

https://www.engr.psu.edu/ce/courses/...xturesMain.htm

Water Reducing Admixtures with retarding effect:

"The use of WRA may accelerate or retard the initial setting time of concrete. The WRA that retards the initial setting time more than three hours later is classified as WRA with retarding effect (Type D). Commonly used WRA is lignosulfonates and hydrocarboxylic (HC) acids."

http://www.theconcreteportal.com/admix_chem.html

I don't see lime listed as a retarding admixture.

Maybe ask a concrete company?

To sweeten the soil PH in my garden, I use pelletized calcium. I've bought the powdered lime by mistake, but it's very hard to spread evenly, where you can put the pelletized lime/calcium in a spreader and hook it behind the mower and drive it on.

It would be better to cover the concrete with plastic to slow the drying than it would be to start adding things to the mix.

I assume he is trying to extend the working time to place the concrete, so covering it and keeping it wet would not apply.

If you're trying to extend working time of the concrete use cold water for the mix or add ice into the mix.

I used mortar mix for waterproofing but here's some info from the Sakrete website;

Quote:
How To Mix Mortar
Mortar can be made in one of two ways. The older method is to take portland cement, add hydrated lime and mix with fine sand. The newer method is use masonry cement and fine sand. Masonry cement is simply a material made by most cement companies where they intergrind the portland with lime or other ingredients designed to produce high air content in a kiln. The results are the same. If you go to the store and buy a bag of mortar you will not be able to tell which method was used to make the masonry cement. There are some parts of the country where masonry cement is simply not available and you will only get portland/lime mortar. The good thing is that it doesn’t matter. In my thirty years of doing this type of work I have found that masons are the most determined group I have ever run into. Some will absolutely swear that you must use portland/lime while others insist masonry cement is the way to go. Just chalk it up to personal preference.
