Liquid calcium chloride (CaCl2) is an ionic compound composed of calcium and chlorine. Liquid calcium chloride is an odourless, colourless, non-toxic solution, In various industries and applications around the globe, liquid calcium chloride is used extensively. Due to the versatile nature of liquid calcium chloride, it can be utilized in a number of applications by drawing moisture from its surroundings. When it comes to controlling dust and stabilizing base construction projects, liquid calcium chloride is a top choice for chemical applications.
Liquid calcium chloride is often used in construction in large quantities, and as such needs to be stored in a safe manner. The preferred material for storing liquid calcium chloride in construction is using large liquid storage tanks that are carbon steel with an epoxy-based interior coating and a durable, high-quality coating on the exterior. Non-metallic materials, such as fibreglass or plastic, work well for smaller tanks storing the product at ambient temperature; however, these materials are not as durable as carbon steel and they lose strength at high temperatures. Liquid calcium chloride is a highly soluble, hygroscopic solution—which is also exothermic. Liquid calcium chloride has the ability to draw moisture from its surroundings, resist evaporation and release heat. Liquid Calcium Chloride is also the perfect substance for road construction and maintenance—including dust control and base stabilization.
The properties of liquid calcium chloride make the substance great for a variety of applications. Ward Chemical is continually testing and finding new uses for liquid calcium chloride. Some common uses of liquid calcium chloride are:
- Base stabilization
- Freeze proofing for winter road application
- Sewage purification
- Grouting agents
- Additives for cement kilns
- Nitrogen inhibitors
- Salt substitute in animal feed
- Organic Calcium fertilizer
- Drilling mud
- Refrigeration fluids
- Liquid odor control
- Soil pH adjustment
- A variety of anti-freezes
