The introduction of liquid calcium chloride to gravel bed roadways will bind with the fine dust within the soil structure to maintain moisture and prevent dust from being expelled to the environment when disturbed by road traffic.
Rock Salt Calcium Chloride brine is also used as a tire ballast agent (sometimes referred to as heavy water). Being a very dense liquid, resistant to freezing to -45ºC, it provides extra weight to the tire resulting in better grip.
Road Salt Calcium Chloride brine is used as a winter de-icing agent either directly applied as an anti icing or de-icing agent as well as treating salt and sand to enhance the features of these products. Working effectively to melt snow and ice to below -45ºC

The cement industry uses it as an accelerant, the chemical industry as additives in plastics, fire extinguishers, production of activated charcoal and heating pads due to exothermic properties (generating heat). Agricultural uses include a source of calcium for soil and spraying apple trees to prevent spotting as well as many other uses.
