Making Solutions from
Dry Calcium Chloride
Use cool water! Significant heat is released when dissolving. Add solid calcium chloride slowly while continuously mixing. The observed temperature increase during dissolving will vary depending on the conditions associated with each specific application. If solids are allowed to sit motionless in contact with water, a hard cake will form that will be slow to dissolve.
