Calcium Chloride absorbs water vapor from the air and liquid water from the road bed. At 77 F and 75% humidity, for example, it absorbs more than twice its weight in water. In addition, calcium chloride solutions attract more moisture to the road than they give up in evaporation. The road remains dense and compact under almost any level of traffic because calcium chloride keeps materials on the road by keeping moisture in the road, even under a burning sun on a sweltering day.
Calcium chloride is generally sprayed as a 35% solution using a tank truck with a rear- mounted distribution bar that spreads the liquid evenly over the road. One pass will cover an 8- to 12-foot-wide road. Two passes are needed on roads 16 to 18 feet wide.
