By depressing the freezing point of water, calcium chloride is used to prevent ice formation and to deice. This is particularly useful on road surfaces. Calcium chloride the compound is relatively harmless to plants and soil. Contact us today to inquire about our calcium chloride pellets!

It is also more effective at lower temperatures than sodium chloride (ROCK SALT). When distributed for this use, it usually takes the form of small, white balls a few millimeters in diameter, called prills. Solutions of calcium chloride can prevent freezing at temperature as low as 52 °C (?62 °F), making it ideal deicing at low temperatures
