Product overview

Tokuyama has manufactured calcium chloride jointly with soda ash since the company's founding. A chemical compound of calcium and chloride, calcium chloride is one type of inorganic chloride, indicated by the molecular formula of CaCl2. It generates a large amount of heat in reaction to water and significantly lowers the freezing point of water, making it effective as a strong and immediate-acting antifreeze as well as a snow and ice remover. Calcium Chloride is also employed as a food and beverage additive, mainly for maintaining the consistency of beer and soft drinks, and in brine for tofu production.

General usages

Calcium Chloride is appropriate for general-purpose applications such as snow melting and dust protection, as well as industrial and food-additive applications

Special characteristics

  • In granular form, calcium chloride is white in color, absorbent, deliquescent,* and easily dissolves in water
  • Generates a large amount of heat in reaction to water
  • Water with a 30% concentration of calcium chloride does not freeze until -55°C
  • Chemical stability is maintained over long periods under normal conditions
