Calcium Chloride
NSN: 6810-00-422-2169

Anhydrous Calcium Chloride 94-97%
Technical Grade

Calcium Chloride Pellets

Description: Small, white pellets processed from naturally occurring material.

Relative deicing speed: Fast acting deicer at all temperatures.

Lowest practical temperature: Down to -25° F.

Effect on concrete: Does not chemically attack concrete. Poses least threat of damage from freeze induced expansion pressure.

Effect on vegetation: Used only as recommended, will not harm vegetation. Calcium Chloride is used
as a calcium source for certain fruits and vegetables.

Residue: Leaves no powdery residue.

Manufacturer's recommended application rate: 2 -4 oz/yd.

Comments: Calcium Chloride gives off heat as it dissolves therefore melting more ice faster at lower temperatures than other common chemical deicers.

Calcium Chloride Flake

CALCIUM CHLORIDE - Flake (Separate from above available)

Description: Flat off-white flakes containing 16-20% water of hydration.

Relative deicing speed: Starts about as fast as pellets, but does not have the same melting ability.

Lowest practical temperature: Down to -25° F.

Effect on concrete: Does not chemically attack concrete. Poses least threat of damage from freeze-induced expansion pressure.

Effect on vegetation: Used as recommended, will not harm vegetation. Calcium chloride is used as a calcium source for certain fruits and vegetables.

Residue: Leaves no powdery residue.

Manufacturer's recommended application rate: 2 - 4 oz/yd.

Comments: Although flake calcium chloride does give off some heat, it gives off less heat than pellets.

Practical Uses and Technical Information

Calcium Chloride can be used for and in the following:

Ice and Snow Melters. Production of Calcium Salts. Cold-weather concrete additive - Soil solidification - Tractor Tire weighting. Direct drying compound. Shoulder and base stabilization. Dustproofing and freeze-resisting ore and coal. Increases web strength of corrugating media. Improves dye retention. An additive to oil well completion fluids. Cementing finished oil wells. Drilling mud additive and drying petroleum fractions.


Dust Control - Concrete Accelerator:

Calcium Chloride has unique properties that make
it ideal for maintaining unpaved roads and fortifying road bases for new construction. It is calcium chloride's ability to regulate moisture on road surfaces that is the key to building roads that last.

Calcium Chloride keeps roads moist, day-in and day out, keeping nuisance dust down. Reduced pot-holing and rutting made possible by calcium chloride surface stabilization makes roads safer year round.

Stabilized calcium chloride roads can reduce aggregate loss by up to 75%. In addition, they significantly reduce the frequency and costs associated with periodic grading.

Uniform compaction and residual calcium chloride helps protect road bases from winter freezing and related frost heaving. Long known as an effective
ice melter, calcium chloride lowers the freezing
point of moisture in road bases to nearly 60 degrees below zero.

Calcium Chloride protection of unpaved roads and road bases is cumulative and long-tasting. The migration of calcium Chloride from road bases is minimal. Studies have shown that calcium chloride
 is still present and providing stabilization in road sub-bases nearly 30 years after initial construction.

Calcium Chloride maintains workability in concrete with reduced water usage. In addition, faster setting means that manpower and labor hours can be reduced. And the number of forms required for a project can be minimized, since they can be re-used faster at the job-site.

Calcium chloride is commonly used in industry as
 an accelerator
. Accelerated rates of strength development allow for earlier removal of forms, earlier finishing operations and availability for use. This also allows for shorter curing and protection periods which can be advantageous, especially in cold weather conditions. Briefly, calcium chloride reduces initial and final setting, resistance to sulfate attack and bleeding. Tensile and flexural strength are slightly decreased. However, compressive strength, water tightness and modulus of elasticity are increased. Resistance to damage by freezing and thawing is improved early but may be less resistant at later ages.
