TETRA Flake calcium chloride (CaCl2) is a white, flaked, dihydrate product with 80% by weight calcium chloride.

TETRA Flake applications include:

Chemical Industry: provides good source of soluble calcium
Oilfield: can be used as fluid for drilling, cementing, and workover operations
Ready Mix Concrete: accelerates setting times
Snow and Ice Melting: facilitates de-icing on highways and pavement
Soil Conditioning: stabilizes roadbeds and facilitates salt remediation
Water Care: provides source of calcium for pools and nonpotable applications
Dowflake Calcium Chloride
DowFlaketm Xtra is clearly superior

The advantages of calcium chloride flakes for snow and ice removal are that they provide a large flat surface area and stay put when applied. The flat profile allows them to sit on surfaces that are slopped or exposed to wind that would typically have “roll-off” when using a pellet style deicer. They also easily pass through ice melt spreaders and equipment freely providing an even and consistent coverage when applied.

Calcium chloride flakes, like DowFlaketm Xtra, are highly effective at cold temperatures down to -25F.

DowFlaketm Xtra when used as part of a “HotMix”, provides additional performance benefits when mixed it with rock salt and or sand. When mixed with rock salt it performs faster and at lower temperatures. Using Calcium Chloride flake in a dry mix can reduce salt use by as much as 60% when blended in a 1:4 ratio with rock salt.

Additionally adding DowFlaketm Xtra to sand helps keep it free flowing in cold temperatures and provides a spike in temperature improving the performance of the sand.

DowFlaketm Xtra Calcium Chloride Flake is a fast, effective ice-melt material:

DowFlaketm Xtra contains 83-87% calcium chloride, so you can melt ice and snow faster and across a wider temperature range.

“Xtra” Concentration for “Xtra” Ice-Melting Speed

At 20’F (-7’C) melt more ice and snow in 20 minutes with DowFlaketm Xtra melts approximately:

35% more ice than rock salt
130% more ice than urea
400% more ice than potassium chloride
