Calcium chloride is a hygroscopic material and an inorganic compound, a salt with the chemical formula CaCl2. It is a white coloured crystalline solid at room temperature.
Deliquescence is the property of calcium chloride that causes it to attract moisture and dissolve itself during the process into a watery brine. Calcium chloride dissolves into a liquid brine partially due to the fact that it is able to attract several times its own weight in water.
Calcium chloride’s moisture protection abilities begin to work even at low relative humidity, and increase exponentially as humidity rises.
Calcium chloride sachets are an environmentally friendly, food grade disposable desiccant. Its high absorption rate 150% (RH ≥ 90%), efficiently reducing the relative humidity in the sealed bag and ensure cargo safe storage and transportation, Protect cargo from moisture, mildew.
