New Jersey's largest Distributor of Liquid
CALCIUM CHLORIDE is designed to meet a broad range of needs for
a variety of customers. Liquid Calcium chloride is a odorless, colorless,
and non-flammable liquid which is environmentally friendly and is NOT
regarded as a “hazardous material”. Certain concentrations are available
to enhance the performance for various operating conditions. Winter
deicing, anti-icing, dust control, refrigeration, redi-mix concrete and
more. With results to minus 59 degrees, Liquid Calcium is required
and used as the “Premium” and most cost effective De-icer used by most
highway departments throughout the Country.
• DE-ICING- Proven year
after year, Required by most states and highway departments
throughout the country as the “Premium” and most cost effective
liquid for winter deicing and winter road maintenance.
Liquid Calcium Chloride is a
pure (not a blend) product, that has the lowest freezing point of
any other liquid deicer or blend. With an extremely low freezing
point of -59 degrees, a Liquid Calcium Chloride application is much
greater to withstand dilution (from melting ice and snow) and will
still perform, and remain effective much longer than other liquid
deicers or blends with higher freezing points. This results in fewer
applications with long lasting continued performance.
In conjunction with rock salt and sand, Liquid
Calcium Chloride as a wetting agent, far surpasses any other process
in keeping our roads dryer and safer in the most cost effective,
economical way possible..
ANTI-ICING - A pre-wetting application of Liquid Calcium
Chloride before the snow or ice arrives to form a barrier to prevent
it from bonding to the road surface. The practice of anti-icing
involves the application of a very thin layer of calcium chloride
prior to a snow or ice storm. Liquid calcium chloride inhibits the
bonding of snow or ice to the pavement, making it easier for road
crews to clean roads down to pavement. An economical way of de-icing
roadways maximizing results down to -59 degrees and out performs any
and all blends.
• REFRIGERATION - Liquid Calcium Chloride
brines have an extremely low freezing point (as low as -59°F ) which
is used as a economical refrigerant for large quantities in many
types of industry.
DUST CONTROL—Liquid Calcium Chloride is the most effective way
of controlling dust since it has a great affinity for moisture for a
prolonged period of time. When applied to a dirt road or quarry
field, it will both stabilize the road as well as bind the small
particles of dust together. Liquid Calcium Chloride will continue to
attract and absorb moisture from the air as well as resisting
evaporation keeping the roadway damp and dust free. Unlike water,
which evaporates quickly on hot days, Liquid Calcium Chloride can
keep the roadway damp for extended periods of time. This type of
application will reduce your operating costs of frequent water
ROAD BASE STABILIZATION - Road-building contractors use calcium
chloride to enhance road base stability for new roads and for
asphalt reclamation of older roads. It allows greater density,
surface uniformity and helps maintain optimum moisture content. When
applied to a unpaved roadway, Liquid Calcium Chloride combines the
aggregate and dirt particles into a solid base improving the
compaction of soil and preventing erosion, suppression and dust.
• ASPHALT RECLAMATION - Improves absorption
of bituminous materials. Priming materials are easily absorbed and
bonding is improved.
• READY-MIX CONCRETE - Liquid Calcium
Chloride is the most economical and effective way of accelerating
the setting time of concrete for cold weather conditions. Calcium
chloride-accelerated cement can be used for flatwork or walls, in
cold or warm weather, whenever a faster set is desired.
TIRE WEIGHTING - Liquid calcium chloride is used to improve
the traction of tractor and construction vehicles. It increases
Drawbar pull, reduces tire wear, and reduces stress on other vehicle
Liquid calcium Chloride is placed inside tires of farm tractors and
construction vehicles to add weight, which improves ballast and
PETROLEUM - Liquid Calcium Chloride increases density and
reduces shale swelling in drilling applications.
WASTE WATER TREATMENT - Liquid Calcium Chloride breaks up oil
and water emulsions and removes fluorides.
COAL / ORE PREPARATION - Lowers freezing point of moisture
containing solids to prevent lumping.
LIQUID MAGNESIUM CHLORIDE Similar to Calcium
Chloride, Magnesium Chloride is used for De-icing, Anti-icing, and Dust
Control with results to -28 degrees. Available with optional inhibitors
that can reduce the corrosion on equipment and maintenance costs compared
to other blended liquid de-icers.
- Liquid Magnesium Chloride is widely used for effective winter road
maintenance. As a wetting agent, Liquid Magnesium Chloride, in conjunction
with rock salt and sand, create an effective and economic way of
de-icing roadways. Maximizing results down to -28° F, and used by many towns
to keep our winter roads dryer and safe..
ANTI-ICING - A pre-wetting application of Liquid Magnesium Chloride before
the snow or ice arrives to form a barrier to prevent it from bonding to the
road surface. The practice of
anti-icing involves the application of a thin layer of Liquid Magnesium
Chloride (sometimes blended with beet juice)
prior to a snow or ice storm. Liquid Magnesium Chloride inhibits the bonding
of snow or ice to the pavement, making it easier for road crews to clean
roads down to pavement. An economical way of de-icing roadways maximizing
results down to -28 degrees and out performs any and all blends.
• DUST CONTROL - Liquid Magnesium
Chloride can keep the roadway damp for extended periods of time and help
with controlling dust. When applied to a dirt road or quarry field, it will
both stabilize the road as well as bind the small particles of dust together
and will continue to attract and absorb moisture from the air as well as
resisting evaporation keeping the roadway damp and dust free. Unlike water,
which evaporates quickly on hot days,
DRY CALCIUM CHLORIDE
|Dry Calcium chloride (FLAKE
OR PELLETS) - are used to prevent ice formation and is used to deice
driveways, walk ways and can cover a large surface area. Available in flakes
or pellets, both work very well with ice melt spreaders. Calcium chloride is
relatively harmless to plants and soil.
As a deicing agent, it is more effective at lower
temperatures than sodium chloride. Dry Calcium chloride is cost effective
and reduces the amount of labor required to keep unpaved surfaces for dust
Setcon Industries provides Dry Calcium chloride in
25lb, 50lb, 100lb bags, drums, pallet and truck load quantities.
SPRAY AND MELT- (Liquid Calcium Chloride, not a
A “ready to use” product designed and
packaged on a smaller scale for anti-icing or de-icing sidewalks, driveways,
and walkways. Packaged in convenient 5 gallon pails with pour spouts, most
commonly used in pump sprayers or other desired application.
-Pretreat area before snowfall to keep snow and ice from bonding to
