Deicing and freezing point depressionBy depressing the freezing point of water, calcium chloride is used to prevent ice formation and to deice. Calcium chloride is relatively harmless to plants and soil. As a deicing agent, it is more effective at lower temperatures than sodium chloride.
Road surfacing : The second largest application of calcium chloride exploits its hygroscopic properties and the tackiness of its hydrates. A concentrated solution keep a liquid layer on the surface of dirt roads, which suppresses formation of dust. It keeps the finer dust particles on the road, providing a cushioning layer
Water treatment Calcium Chloride Granules is used to increase the water hardness in swimming pools. This process reduces the erosion of the concrete in the pool.
Paints: Calcium Chloride Granules is used in cement paints.
