Calcium chloride dehydrate are inorganic compounds with the chemical formula CaCl2(H2O)2, it’s highly soluble in water. It is mainly used for deicing and dust control.
By depressing the freezing point of water, calcium chloride is used to prevent ice formation and to deice. The second largest application of calcium chloride exploits its hygroscopicproperties and the tackiness of its hydrates. A concentrated solution keep a liquid layer on the surface of dirt roads, which suppresses formation of dust.Calcium Chloride is also used water treatment,food addtive.
