Product overview

Tokuyama has manufactured calcium chloride jointly with soda ash. Calcium chloride is one type of inorganic salt. 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 melting agent.
Calcium Chloride is also used as a food and beverage additive, mainly for controlling the hardness of beer and soft drinks, and in bittern for tofu production.
