What is Calcium Chloride - CaCl2?

calcium chloride imageCalcium chloride, CaCl2, is a common salt. It behaves as a typical ionic halide, and is solid at room temperature. It has several common applications such as brine for refrigeration plants, ice and dust control on roads, and in concrete. The anhydrous salt is also widely used as a desiccant, where it will absorb so much water that it will eventually dissolve in its own crystal lattice water. It can be produced directly from limestone, but large amounts are also produced as a by-product of the Solvay process. Because of its hygroscopic nature, the anhydrous form must be kept in tightly-sealed containers. It is used to turn kelp into a solid.

In this fabric softener formula, calcium chloride is use as thinner or in reducing the viscosity of the formulation.

Calcium chloride can also be used in:

  • calcium fertilizer
  • soil neutralization
  • food processing
  • odor control
  • tractor tire weighting
    Oil and Gas
  • oil drilling fluids
  • pipeline hydrotest
  • corrosion control
  • road construction
  • dust Control (road dust control agent)
  • liquid ice control (a.k.a. ice melting chemicals, liquid ice control, natural anti-freeze, road salt)
  • water treatment (Drainage aid for wastewater treatment, additive in swimming pool water to increase "Calcium Hardness" value of water.
  • refrigeration
  • cement accelerator
  • Additive in plastics
  • Additive in fire extinguishers
  • Additive in control scaffolding in blast furnaces
You can buy calcium chloride in different forms:

Dow Corning® C2-0563

Dow Corning® C2-0563 Fabric Water Repellent is an air-drying, air-curing silicone fabric finish for natural and synthetic fabrics. It imparts a high degree of water repellency and provides several handling benefits:

• Room temperature air drying and air curing
• Improved dilution stability
• Wide range of diluents to use – aliphatic, aromatic and chlorinated solvents

Natural and synthetic fabrics become highly water repellent after treatment with this silicone finish. Fabric breathability is not impaired since the silicone coats the fibers without blocking fabric pores. The silicone coating is also permeable to moisture vapor. Following treatment with Dow Corning C2-0563 Fabric Water Repellent, fabrics become resistant to waterborne stains, shed water easily, and dry rapidly. These characteristics are especially advantageous for wash-and wear clothing, sports clothing and children's clothing.

Dow Corning C2-0563 Fabric Water Repellent leaves no odor and does not impair fabric feel. It leaves fabrics with a soft, full hand and good drape, and is particularly useful with synthetic fabrics that are difficult to process with conventional paraffin-based water.  Unlike these, the silicone finish is relatively free from “mark-off” due to fingernail scratches.

When used on white fabrics, yellowing may occur. Pretest all substrates before using commercially. This product is neither tested nor represented as suitable for medical or pharmaceutical uses.

Dow Corning 347


Dow Corning® 347 Emulsion is a concentrated emulsion of hydroxy end-blocked dimethyl silicone fluid. A stable, water-dilutable nonionic polydimethylsiloxane, Dow Corning 347 Emulsion is highly surface active to provide good release, lubricity, water repellency and gloss in numerous industrial and specialty chemical applications. Diluted with water and applied by
spraying or dipping, Dow Corning 347 Emulsion leaves a thin but highly effective silicone release film on mold surfaces. In most cases, this heat stable film does not carbonize at temperatures which quickly destroy organic mold release agents, does not build up on molds, and does not discolor rubber or plastic parts.

Dow Corning 347 Emulsion has demonstrated exceptional stability. A small amount of rust inhibitor is formulated into Dow Corning 347 Emulsion to resist rusting in the concentrated form. Because of the reactive chemical sites on the polydimethylsiloxane, Dow Corning 347 Emulsion can be reacted with various substrates. Crosslinking agents and catalysts can be used to obtain a more resinous coating.


Dow Corning 347 Emulsion is diluted with water and applied by either spraying or dipping.

Dow Corning 929 Cationic Emulsion


Dow Corning® 929 Cationic Emulsion is a 35 percent silicone emulsion that enhances the performance properties of detergent-resistant auto polishes, auto rinses and vinyl protectors.  When used as an auto polish ingredient,  Dow Corning 929 Cationic Emulsion improves:

• High gloss/low smear properties
• Water repellency
• Detergent resistance
• Durability
• Application ease

The amine reactivity of the base polymer and the cationic emulsifier provide this material with its unique properties. Dow Corning 929 Cationic Emulsion is a cationic, oil-in-water emulsion of aminofunctional polydimethylsiloxane. The highly polar nature of the aminofunctional groups attached to the siloxane, the ability of the emulsified silicone polymer to cure, and the cationic nature of the emulsion all combine to provide outstanding bonding and adhesion properties onto automotive

Successful in both oil-in-water and water-in-oil emulsions, Dow Corning 929 Cationic Emulsion can help produce a polish film that withstands repeated washings and adverse weather conditions.

IPA is a colorless, flammable liquid with a characteristic alcohol / acetone-like odor. It mixes completely with most solvents, including water. One well-known yet relatively small use for IPA is “rubbing alcohol,” which is a mixture of IPA and water and can be purchased in many pharmacies and grocery stores.
IPA from
The largest use for IPA is as a solvent. The second largest use is as a chemical intermediate. IPA is also found in many everyday products such as paints, inks, general-purpose cleaners, disinfectants, room sprays and windshield deicing agents. IPA produced by Dow is commonly used in nitrocellulose-based lacquers and thinners for wood finishing, in adhesives, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics and toiletries, disinfectants, rubbing compounds, and lithography. It is also used as an ingredient in cleaners and polishers, as a chemical intermediate, and as a dehydrating agent and extractant.
