Technical Background

RS Minerals Ltd supplies both Calcium Chloride Anhydrous (94-97%) and Calcium Chloride Dihydrate (77%). These products are used in many industries and for a variety of applications, including the manufacture of fertilisers and drilling fluids.  Calcium Chloride Dihydrate is a Food Grade product.

Calcium Chloride is very hygroscopic and it can be usefully deployed as a dessiccant.  As it produces a tacky surface when exposed to air, it can be scattered on dirt tracks to minimise dust formation.

Due of its ability to depress the freezing point of water, Calcium Chloride can also be used to suppress the formation of ice on road surfaces.  It is relatively harmless to soil and to plants, and it is more effective than Sodium Chloride at very low temperatures.
Calcium Chloride Anhydrous is a prilled product, whereas the form of Calcium Chloride Dihydrate is white flakes (approximately 1-6mm).

Calcium Chloride Anhydrous and Calcium Chloride Dihydrate are both supplied in 25Kg sacks.
