This specification covers technical grade calcium chloride typically used for, but not limited to, dust control, stabilization, ice/snow removal, other road-conditioning purposes, acceleration of the set of concrete, and as a desiccant. Two types of calcium chloride are covered, as follows: Type S (solid), flake, pellet, or granular calcium chloride in varying concentrations; and Type L (liquid), water solutions of calcium chloride in varying concentrations. Concentrations shall be expressed as a percentage of the total. Impurities such as alkali chlorides, magnesium, and calcium hydroxide should be within specified composition limits.
