CaCl2

Basic Info

Calcium chloride are inorganic compounds with the chemical formula CaCl2(H2O)x, where x = 0, 1, 2, 4, and 6. All of these salts are a highly soluble in water. They are mainly used for deicing and dust control. Because the anhydrous salt is hygroscopic, it is used as a desiccant.

If swallowed

Rinse mouth. Do NOT induce vomiting. Give one or two glasses of water to drink. Refer immediately for medical attention.

4.2 Most important symptoms/effects, acute and delayed

Inhalation causes irritation of nose and throat. Ingestion causes irritation of mouth and stomach. Contact with eyes (particularly by dust) causes irritation and possible transient corneal injury. Contact of solid with dry skin causes mild irritation; strong solutions can cause marked irritation, even a superficial burn. (USCG, 1999)
