Calcium Chloride

 

TETRA 80
The Pellet with Promise.

Calcium Chloride Product Data Sheet

General Description
TETRA 80
is a white high purity calcium chloride pellet with 77%-82% CaCl2 by weight, easily soluble in water.

TETRA 80 has the following features:

  1. Very low impurities, good source of soluble calcium ions
  2. Free flowing pellet
  3. Non-dusting
  4. Fast dissolving
  5. Low crystallization point (approx. -50F for a 30% solution)

Applications
TETRA 80 is suitable for ready mix concrete acceleration; dust stabilization on unpaved roads; tire weighting; swimming pool water treatment; highway deicing; oilfield drilling and cementing; desiccant and dehumidification; brine refrigeration; and other applications requiring ASTM D98 and AASHTO Ml 44 Standards.

Chemical Properties
 

Chemical Formula...............CaCl2 -2H2O
Form...........................A white odorless pellet
Assay..........................77% to 82% by weight calcium chloride
Bulk Density...................Approximately 55-61 pounds per cubic foot
pH.............................6.5 to 10.0

Typical Analysis (impurities on a 100% basis)

Calcium Chloride...............77%-82%
Alkali Chlorides (as NaCI).....<2%
Other Impurities (not H20).....<1%
Iron (Fe)......................<15 ppm
Sulfates (as SO4)..............<500 ppm
Lime (as Ca(OH)2)..............<3,000 ppm

Typical Screen Analysis

Screen Number:
4 (4.76 mm)............80 - 100% passing
30 (0.59 mm............0-5% passing

Meets ASTM D98, Type S, Grade 1, Class A particle size specification

Packaging

TETRA 80 is available in 25lb, 50lb and 25kg bags, as well as 2,000lb and 1,000kg bulk bags (FIBC's), from TETRA's Westlake, Louisiana, plant.

Safety and Handling
TETRA 80, 77%-82% calcium chloride, is not subject to DOT regulations. However, it is a hygroscopic salt exhibiting a strong exothermic heat of dissolution. Always use cool water (less than 80F or 27C) when dissolving or diluting calcium chloride. Protective clothing, such as rubber gloves, safety goggles, rubber safety boots and a respiratory mask should be worn during handling.

When used as an ICE MELTING COMPOUND sprinkle lightly and evenly over ice surface - about two pounds per 200 sq. ft. (one pound coffee can holds approx. 2 lbs.). Thawing begins immediately. As soon as ice is melted, slush and water should be promptly removed to prevent refreezing. The cycle of refreezing and thawing by natural weather elements can cause damage to concrete. The use of an ice melting agent increases these cycles, and are factors over which we have no control. All deicers may be harmful to concrete surfaces. Independent testing shows that these pellets contribute less to concrete scaling than other commonly used deicers. If this product is used on concrete of questionable quality or in excessive amounts, there may be flaking and scaling of the concrete surface. When grass and shrubbery are adjacent to icy surfaces, particular care should be used to avoid excessive application as it could cause browning. The use of this ice melting compound must be at the consumer's risk. Store in a dry place and keep tightly closed when not in use.

Technical Support
TETRA 80 is supported by technical assistance from personnel with extensive product knowledge and experience. Chemical engineers, chemists and lab technicians are on hand to provide customer support. Twenty-four hour technical assistance is available by calling toll-free: (800) 327-7817.

 

TETRA 94
The Pellet with Promise.

Calcium Chloride Product Data Sheet

General Description
TETRA 94 is a white high purity pellet with 94%-97% CaCI2 by weight.

TETRA 94, The Pellet with Promise, is the Hottest Deicer Available. It has the following features when compared to its nearest competitor:

  • Faceted shape of pellets makes them more controllable than round pellets that bounce and roll.
  • Higher concentration (94-97%) gives a higher heat of dissolution for faster melting and a higher rate of penetration.

When you need to start melting ice and snow immediately, you immediately need TETRA 94, The Pellet with Promise.

Applications
TETRA 94 is the premier deicer for sidewalks, parking lots and driveways. This high energy deicer should be sprinkled lightly and evenly over ice surfaces ... about 2 pounds per 200 square feet. (A one pound coffee can holds approximately 2 pounds of TETRA 94.) Thawing begins immediately. As soon as ice is melted, slush and water should be promptly removed to prevent refreezing. The cycle of refreezing and thawing by natural weather elements can cause damage to concrete. The use of an ice melting agent increases these cycles, and are factors over which we have no control. All deicers may be harmful to concrete surfaces. Independent testing shows that these pellets contribute less to concrete scaling than other commonly used deicers. If this product is used on concrete of questionable quality or in excessive amounts, there may be flaking and scaling of the concrete surface. When grass and shrubbery are adjacent to icy surfaces, particular care should be used to avoid excessive application as it could cause browning. The use of this ice melting compound must be at the consumer's risk. Store in a dry place and keep tightly closed when not in use.
