Calcium Chloride

Hscode: 28272000 Chemical formula: CaCl2 CAS Nu: 10043-52-4 UN Nu: NA Hazard Class: NA Synonyms: Neutral calcium chloride

Calcium chloride is a chemical compound with the formula CaCl2. It is a white, crystalline solid that is highly soluble in water. Calcium chloride is commonly used for a variety of purposes due to its hygroscopic nature and ability to absorb moisture from the air.

  • Deicing and anti-icing: Calcium chloride is widely used as a deicing agent to remove ice And snow from roads, sidewalks, and other surfaces. It lowers the freezing point of water, helping to melt ice and prevent further ice formation.

  • Desiccant: Due to its moisture-absorbing properties, calcium chloride is used as a desiccant to control humidity and prevent moisture damage in various environments, such as storage areas, shipping containers, and industrial processes.

  • Food additive: Calcium chloride is classified as a food additive (E509) and is used in the food industry for various purposes. It can enhance the firmness of fruits and vegetables, act as a coagulant in cheese making, and improve the texture of canned vegetables.

  • Water treatment: Calcium chloride is employed in water treatment processes to adjust water hardness and control pH levels. It can help prevent the formation of scale in pipes and equipment.

  • Concrete setting accelerator: In construction, calcium chloride is used as a concrete setting accelerator. It accelerates the curing process, reducing the setting time and increasing the strength of concrete.

  • Medicine and healthcare: Calcium chloride can be used in medical treatments to replenish calcium levels in the body. It may be administered intravenously to treat certain calcium deficiencies or to stabilize the heart's electrical activity. These are just a few of the many applications of calcium chloride. It is a versatile compound with various uses across different industries.

  • The difference in calcium chloride concentrations, such as 94-96% and 80% and them respective application: Calcium chloride with a concentration of 94-96% is considered a high-purity grade. It means that it contains a higher percentage of calcium chloride in comparison to impurities or other compounds. This high purity makes it suitable for applications that require precise control over the concentration and chemical composition, such as laboratory experiments, industrial processes, or specific medical treatments. On the other hand, calcium chloride with an 80% concentration is slightly less pure. It contains a lower percentage of calcium chloride and may have a higher content of impurities or water. This grade is commonly used in various applications where the precise concentration is not critical or where the impurities do not significantly affect the desired outcome. For example, it can be used for deicing roads, controlling dust, or in certain industrial processes where the concentration requirement is not as stringent. In summary, the different concentrations of calcium chloride are chosen based on the specific application requirements, where higher purity grades are preferred when precise control over concentration and chemical composition are necessary, while lower purity grades can be used in applications where the specific concentration is not crucial.
