Calcium Chloride 78% is a type of salt which is composed of Calcium and Chlorine ions. Calcium Chloride 78% granules are white and odorless. It is usually found as a hydrated solid with the general chemical formula of CaCl2x (H2O) where x is equal to 0, 1, 2, 4 and 6. As an example, anhydrous Calcium Chloride has a molecular mass of 110.98 g/mol. Industrial Calcium Chloride is a type of Calcium Chloride which is usually produced in the form of monohydrate or dihydrate with purity of 78%. Industrial Calcium Chloride 78% is very advantageous for various industrial applications such as oil and the petrochemical industry. However, when this product has a low purity of about 78%, it cannot be used as food grade calcium chloride, and 96% purity should be used in the food industry. Calcium Chloride 78% is highly soluble in water and considered a hygroscopic substance. It can extremely absorb moisture; therefore, it is widely known as a desiccant – induce and sustaining a state of dryness. When dissolved in water, it produces a clear colorless solution. The process of dissolving Calcium Chloride in the aqueous environment is exothermic due to its high enthalpy characteristic. Calcium Chloride salt is a source of calcium ions which is excellent to be used in the substitution chemical reactions as it easily replaces other cations. Calcium Chloride 78% is insoluble in ammonia, dimethyl sulfoxide and ethyl acetate. Moreover, it is soluble in alcohol, pyridine and methanol.


Industrial Calcium Chloride 78% is used in a variety of applications in various industries. A number of applications are listed below:

  • In the oil and gas industry, Calcium Chloride is widely used to increase the density of brines. Moreover, it is used to prevent clays from swelling in the water phase of oil-based drilling fluids.
  • In the concrete industries, Calcium Chloride plays an important role as accelerating agent.
  • It is used for laboratory applications, in particular for drying wet particles and solids.
  • Non-edible Calcium Chloride is used in swimming pools to increase the hardness of pool water. Adding this compound to pool water helps reduce concrete erosion in pool structures.
  • Calcium Chloride usage for deicing on roads and sidewalks is the other common application. Calcium Chloride acts like sodium chloride salt on icy highways and icy roads. Calcium Chloride 78% is very effective as an agent to lowering the freezing point of water and preventing the formation of ice on the road surface.
  • It can be added to household fire extinguishers.
  • Calcium Chloride 78% is also used in industrial and household dehumidifiers to absorb air moisture.

Furthermore, Calcium Chloride 78% is used in the process of preparation for many other chemicals such as pigments, metallic soaps, Glycerol and so on.

Purchasing Calcium Chloride78% Petro ARSES has been actively supplying Calcium Chloride 78% to numerous industries and has competitive pricing in Iran. References are available upon request. We have a standard quality control system in place and can arrange for international inspection with the help of inspection companies such as SGS. Advantages High water absorbent capability, makes Calcium Chloride 78% an important material in industrial and household dehumidifiers. Due to its availability and unique chemical structure, it is used for producing other chemicals such as Glycerol and soaps. Having a high retarding effect on cement slurries, Calcium Chloride is one of the important additives in concrete industry. Being a high-density salt, it is widely used in drilling fluid industry as a weighing agent for well completion applications. Calcium Chloride salt is a source of calcium ions which is excellent to be used in the substitution chemical reactions as it easily replaces other cations. Disadvantages It is recommended to be extremely careful when working with Calcium Chloride, as it can cause health and safety risks. Calcium Chloride 78% must be prevented from spreading in the environment and infiltrating the soil, water and sewage channels. Please refer to Petro ARSES MSDS for further details on Calcium Chloride hazards.

Safety tips

Calcium Chloride 78% is stable and non-flammable. CaCl2 78% should be stored in a ventilated and cool environment, away from heat and humidity. This material should not be stored at a temperature above 30°C. Petro ARSES provides Calcium Chloride 78% in Jumbo bag packaging to minimize material degradation while storing or shipping.
