    Significance and Use

    3.1 Calcium chloride is available in various forms and purities. A major use is the de-icing and dust control of roads. It is also used in the coal industry for dustproofing and freezeproofing, in foods, in electrolytic cells, and in refrigeration brines. The test methods listed in 1.2 provide procedures for analyzing calcium chloride to determine if it is suitable for its intended use.

    1. Scope

    1.1 These test methods cover the analysis of calcium chloride and solutions.

    1.2 Procedures are given for the determination of calcium chloride, magnesium chloride, potassium chloride, sodium chloride, and calcium hydroxide. The test methods appear in the following order:



    Calcium Chloride

    8 to 16

    Magnesium Chloride, Potassium Chloride,
    and Sodium Chloride

    17 to 26

    Calcium Hydroxide

    27 to 33

    1.3 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.

    1.4 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. Specific hazard statements are given in Section 5.

    1.5 Review the current Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) for detailed information concerning toxicity, first aid procedures, handling, and safety precautions.
