About Calcium Hypochlorite. Calcium Hypochlorite is an inorganic salt with white crystal solid appearance and strong chlorine odor. It figures among the few metal hypochlorites that is stable enough to be produced as a solid salt, and it is the principal form of hypochlorite commercially produced worldwide. One of its characteristics is the far greater chlorine’s availability comparing to other chlorine salts, ranging from typical values of 60-99%. Calcium hypochlorite’s main uses are in water treatment and as the main active ingredient in bleach and products alike.
Chemical Formula. Ca(ClO)2
Commercial Grades. High purity (99.2% available chlorine); commercial grade (65% available chlorine, 6-12% water); 70% available chlorine (1% water)
