|Liquid Calcium Chloride (CaCl2) is an odorless, slightly alkaline, clear, nearly colorless fluid with a typical concentration of 38 percent CaCl2 by weight.
TETRA liquid calcium chloride is used in various applications to retard cold weather hazards, including snow and ice control on roadways (meets or exceeds ASTM D98-95 and AASHTO Ml 44--86 standards). It is also used as an accelerator for ready mix concrete curing, and as an anti-freeze for coal storage and transportation.
This product is widely used in oilfield applications as completion and workover fluids to increase density, and as a drilling mud additive to increase density and prevent clay hydration.
It can also be used as a fugitive dust control agent and roadbed stabilizer; a weighting fluid for tractor tires to improve traction; an inexpensive source of calcium in wastewater treatment to remove fluoride and break oil/water emulsions; a low-temperature brine in refrigeration systems, and in the manufacture of pigments and steel.
