Calcium chloride 1000 kg
Calcium chloride 1 000 kg - an agent for chemical snow clearing, and de-icing of roads, sidewalks and stairs in the winter. Also known as ‘ecological’ road salt because of the low ecological pressure compared with table salt used as road salt. It prevents the accumulation of dust on unpaved roads, sports fields, tennis courts and speedways. In addition, it's also used as a drying agent for gases and liquids in chemical syntheses.
Calcium chloride dihydrate - a white, odourless solid in the form of flakes. Recommended especially as road salt. It's a great alternative to table salt - sodium chloride - especially because it works effectively at temperatures below -30 degrees Celsius - theoretically, even down to -55. Due to its high heat emission during water absorption, it not only binds moisture from the melting snow and ice, but actively dissolves it. It doesn't damage adjacent lawn beds and permanent fixed vegetation. When introduced into soil, it raises its pH, which, given our acidic soils, improves its structure. When used as road salt, it doesn't erode the surface, affect the environment, or corrode vehicles, it doesn't damage shoes, metals, rubber, or sheet metal, and it's harmless to humans and animals.
Calcium chloride in the form of a 30% aqueous solution is great as an anti-dust agent on gravel and dirt roads. The amount and composition of the mix should be determined experimentally, depending on the prevailing conditions and the type of substrate.
Calcium chloride is used in agriculture as a foliar fertiliser in the cultivation of fruit. Especially recommended in the form of a 6-8% aqueous solution for spraying fruit trees. It provides approximately 500 litres of spray liquid per hectare. Fruit with calcium does not crack during ripening, and is firmer and more durable during storage.
Calcium chloride is also used in the form of an aqueous solution - 0.7% for young plants and 1% for growing and adult plants - in the fight against tipburn in brassica. With preventive spraying at 500-1,000 litres of spray liquid per hectare, you can completely eliminate the problem of young leaves dying, and unsightly brown leaf tips and edges. Advanced tipburn can lead to the death and decomposition of the affected tissues.
Calcium chloride as an aqueous solution is used for ballasting construction and agricultural machinery. Its solutions are resistant to freezing and, unlike other agents, it doesn't erode or degrade rubber and rubber-derived materials used in tyres.
