Calcium chloride is one of the most widely used industrial chemicals in the production of construction materials and has a demanding market all over the world. Today, many factories operate as suppliers of calcium chloride and deliver their high-quality products to customers. The most important criterion for buying calcium chloride is high quality, systematic packaging and suitable methods of transportation from the factory to the place of consumption.

Guide to buying calcium chloride
The chemical substance calcium chloride is a white solid with moisture absorbent properties and is represented by the chemical formula CaCl2. This solid material has crystalline grain and is soluble in water. When buying calcium chloride, be sure to ask for its chemical analysis sheet from the supplier. In this information sheet, the granularity of the material, the solubility at different temperatures, the amount of impurities and other conditions are given.
The quality of calcium chloride is very important. Because this substance absorbs moisture, and naturally exists in monohydrated to hexahydrated states, you should pay attention to which form you buy; Normally, high-quality calcium chloride should not be lumpy and heavy. This shape of the material shows that it has absorbed moisture and its properties have changed in some way.
High-quality calcium chloride is odorless and has a certain granularity. Be careful that the packages of this material should not be sealed; Because moisture and other factors can penetrate inside the package, change the color and smell of the material and reduce its quality.
Physical and chemical properties of calcium chloride
Calcium chloride has different densities in monohydrate to 6-hydrate states, and for this reason, it is different in terms of melting point and solubility. Each of the aqueous forms of calcium chloride has different physical parameters. You can see these differences in the following table:
|Physical and chemical properties|
|Molar mass||110.98 g·mol−1|
|Appearance||White powder-solid-moisture absorbent|
|Density||2.15 g/cm3 (Without water)
2.24 g/cm3 (Monohydrate)
1.85 g/cm3 (Dehydrated)
1.83 g/cm3 (Tetrahydrate)
1.71 g/cm3 (Hexahydrate)
|Melting point||772–775 °C without water
260 °C monohydrate, decomposes
175 °C Dehydrates , decomposes at
45.5 °C tetrahydrate, decomposes
30 °C hexahydrate, decomposes
|Boiling point||1,935 °C without water|
Calcium chloride production methods
The most important method of producing calcium chloride in the industry is through the Solvay process. Calcium chloride is actually a by-product obtained from limestone in this process. Since the amount of impurities associated with this compound in production includes salts of alkali metals and anions of some halogens, therefore, to buy calcium chloride, be sure to request the analysis sheet from the seller.
Applications of calcium chloride

Packaging and storage of calcium chloride
As we mentioned before, calcium chloride is a moisture absorbent and can quickly absorb water from its surroundings, so the packages of this material must be completely sealed and kept closed. These packages should be stored in warehouses and dry and cool places with proper ventilation. All people who somehow deal with this substance must use protective clothing, gloves and masks.
Maintenance, loading and delivery
The storage and maintenance of calcium chloride in factory warehouses is done according to international standards. To buy calcium chloride, you can discuss your request with the seller. Based on the needs of customers, this material is offered in various volumes, from 25 kg bags to 1000 kg jumbo bags. This chemical is sent with the best international transportation equipment from the place of production to the desired place of the customers.
