Granulated calcium chloride has a wide range of applications: from food production, medicine and cosmetology to construction and industry. In industry and construction where the properties of the calcium salt of hydrochloric acid are in demand, technical CaCl2 is used. So, for example, low temperature immunity allows using calcium chloride as an icing reagent, which perfectly copes with its task at temperatures reaching -35 ° C.
Low temperatures on the territory of Russia in winter time are more than large-scale, and the use of calcium chloride was not limited to preventing the formation and effects of ice and pedestrian safety.
Calcium chloride is widely used in industry in the production of foam concrete blocks, foam polystyrene concrete blocks, claydite-concrete, sand cement, and cinder blocks, silicate bricks, in the manufacture of reinforced concrete products not reinforced with steel reinforcement. Calcium chloride is also one of the main components when applying liquid rubber. The use of calcium chloride as an accelerator in the production of concrete products, foam concrete, polystyrene foam and other concrete and mortar is most common and economically justified by accelerating the circulation of forms and, as a result, increasing productivity!
Calcium chloride is actively used in construction as an antifreeze additive in concrete and mortars and as an accelerator of setting, which allows not only increasing the construction period in time in the first case, but also improving the quality and speed of construction in the second one.
ADVANTAGES OF APPLICATION
When CaCl2 is added to a mortar or concrete in an amount of only 2% by weight of cement, the properties of concrete change significantly:
1. The number of chips is reduced and the appearance of the product improves, since the surface strength of concrete increases by 50%.
2. An important factor is the ability to reduce cement consumption by 10% without sacrificing strength and reducing the setting time by almost 3 times.
3. The strength of concrete of normal hardening in the first day increases by more than two.
4. Calcium chloride restores the properties of dead cement
