Frequently Asked Questions

What does “anhydrous” mean?
“Anhydrous” refers to a chemical substance that contains no water and is the property that gives Calcium Chloride its crystalline form. Therefore, when you use a substance like anhydrous calcium chloride, it can draw in water, moisture, and even condensation from its environment. This characteristic of anhydrous calcium chloride is what makes it an effective drying agent.
What are the most common uses for anhydrous calcium chloride?
This compound has a variety of uses, but some of its most common uses are for de-icing, dust control, desiccation, and even dehumidifying. It is used in a variety of industries, from agricultural to industrial. It can also be used in different seasons, from providing dust control in the dry summer months to de-icing during the long, cold winters. Whenever there is a need for a drying agent, anhydrous calcium chloride is a preferred industry option.
What are its agricultural uses?
Anhydrous calcium chloride is used in agricultural sectors as a soil neutralizing agent and calcium fertilizer. As a soil neutralizer, it lowers the pH levels of the soil to allow plants to thrive and produce essential nutrients. It also provides calcium to the soil, which plays a vital role in the growth of your crop yield, strengthening the cell walls of plant tissues, keeping them firm and upright.
Is it hazardous to handle?
Calcium Chloride is generally non-toxic in small amounts. Its hygroscopic properties, however, are still hazardous. It can become an irritant when exposed to moist skin and may burn internal organs if ingested. It is essential that you handle these products with care. If exposed, be sure to seek medical help immediately.
