SHORT DESCRIPTION

Calcium chloride anhydrous (CaCl₂) is a chemical compound made up of calcium and chlorine. It is a kind of salt that appears as a white, highly soluble solid at room temperature. It also has the property of being deliquescent, which means it can absorb moisture from the air and become liquid. Calcium chloride is known to be hygroscopic, which implies that it can easily absorb moisture from the atmosphere. In its anhydrous form, it is present as a white, granular or powdered solid. Additionally, it is highly soluble in water and releases heat when it's dissolved.

  1. Deicing Agent: One of the significant uses of calcium chloride is as a deicing agent for roads and sidewalks. It is effective at lowering the freezing point of water, preventing the formation of ice and aiding in the melting of existing ice.
  2. Drying Agent: Due to its hygroscopic nature, calcium chloride is used as a desiccant or drying agent in various applications. It can be employed to remove moisture from air in industrial processes or to prevent the accumulation of moisture in certain products.
  3. Food Additive: Calcium chloride is used as a firming agent and preservative in the food industry. It helps maintain the texture of fruits and vegetables, especially in products like canned and pickled foods.
  4. Dust Control: Calcium chloride can be applied to unpaved roads to control dust by binding with fine particles and preventing them from becoming airborne.
  5. Concrete Accelerator: In the construction industry, calcium chloride is used as an accelerator in the setting of concrete. It promotes the hardening of concrete and reduces the setting time, especially in cold weather conditions.
  6. Oil and Gas Industry: Calcium chloride finds applications in the oil and gas industry, particularly in well drilling and completion fluids. It is used to control the swelling of clay and shale formations.
