Product Overview

MELT is a unique formulation of calcium chloride crystals that are super-enhanced with extenders for long-lasting traction control. MELT is designed to quickly, safely and effectively tackle frozen snow, sleet and ice around your property during the winter season. Packaged in a resealable bag for easy storage, MELT can be conveniently dispensed directly out of the bag or into a hand-held or wheeled salt spreader. Proven safer when applied to “quality concrete” surfaces, MELT exhibits the following properties: MELTS DOWN TO -25°F: MELT calcium chloride crystals effectively melt ice and snow on contact, even at temperatures as low as -25°F. INSTANT HEAT: MELT calcium chloride crystals generate heat instantly upon contact with snow and ice, thereby accelerating the melting process. FAST ACTING: MELT calcium chloride crystals are specially formulated with super-enhanced melting properties to deliver fast and reliable results. LONG LASTING: Formulated to last up to 24 hours, MELT calcium chloride crystals go to work immediately upon contact with snow and ice and continue working all day long to ensure your surfaces are safer and ice-free. NON-TRACKING: When used as directed, MELT calcium chloride crystals will not track from your shoes onto your home’s floors or carpets. EASY TO DISPENSE: MELT calcium chloride crystals are treated with an anti-caking agent to extend shelf-life and improve spreading.

I don't know. There are a lot of dogs in the neighborhood that walk on my corner home. None have died, however, I wouldn't let them lap it up because when it melts it looks like water.

Can this be liquefied and applied as liquid?

Asked by Brad November 8, 2015

Answers

it can but there is no need By depressing the freezing point of water, calcium chloride is used to prevent ice formation and is used to de-ice. This application consumes the greatest amount of calcium chloride. Calcium chloride is relatively harmless to plants and soil. As a de-icing agent, it is much more effective at lower temperatures than sodium chloride. When distributed for this use, it usually takes the form of small, white spheres 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 for filling agricultural implement tires as a liquid ballast, aiding traction in cold climates.[10] It is also used in domestic and industrial chemical air dehumidifiers.[11] Calcium chloride dissolves in water, producing chloride and the aquo complex [Ca(H2O)6]2+. In this way, these solutions are sources of "free" calcium and free chloride ions. This description is illustrated by the fact that these solutions react with phosphate sources to give a solid precipitate of calcium phosphate: 3 CaCl2 + 2 PO3− 4 → Ca3(PO4)2 + 6 Cl− Calcium chloride has a very high enthalpy change of solution, indicated by considerable temperature rise accompanying dissolution of the anhydrous salt in water. This property is the basis for its largest scale application. Molten calcium chloride can be electrolysed to give calcium metal and chlorine gas. CaCl2 → Ca + Cl2

Is this 100% calcium chloride?

Asked by EAT November 29, 2015

Answers

In the Safety data sheet, it says, Chemical name CAS No Weight-% Trade Secret Calcium chloride 10043-52-4 60 - 100 * Weight-% Trade Secret 60 - 100 * *The exact percentage (concentration) of composition has been withheld as a trade secret So it's AT LEAST 60% CaCL2, and since it has nothing else listed, it's probably what's called 'technical' which means there could be traces of other substances, but it should be mostly Calcium chloride. (Another CaCl2 claims it's 94%; that may account for water it's absorbed.) This says it's "enhanced with dolomite" which is Ca/MgCO3- probably an impurity from manufacture, in small amounts. Also, salt will only melt down to 0 degrees F, and not very effective below 5 F, so the claim "Melts down to-25°F:" also suggests it's mostly CaCL2. Sorry I didn't see this earlier in the season. I'm planning to use it to increase the calcium hardness in my pool, instead of the same stuff at 5x the price in the pool department. IIRC, Calcium chloride will absorb water from the air and melt into a puddle so be sure to keep it dry & sealed. The fact they emphasize a RESEALABLE bag suggests it's mostly CaCl2. I'll admit, the photo looks like it's a mix of two different compounds, but the SDS says it's not. You could check it with a flame test. Ca is orange, sodium (salt) is bright yellow. I'm not a chemist, but I deal w SDS's Good luck.

Can this increase the calcium hardness in swimming pool?

Asked by JJ May 25, 2017

Answers

This product is mostly rock salt with some Calcium Chloride thrown in for marketing appeal. it works OK when used as an Ice Melter; but is not anywhere near 100% Calcium Chloride as required for pool use. This is really just a mid-cost average-quality driveway Ice Melter. Since the label does not list % Calcium Chloride, we can assume "not much", so really this product is mostly overpriced rock salt in a fancy bag.
