Calcium Hypochlorite
Ca(ClO)2
High purity (99.2% available chlorine); commercial grade (65% available chlorine, 6-12% water); 70% available chlorine (1% water)
Calcium Hypochlorite is broadly used as a sanitizer, oxidizer and bleaching agent. The largest use of Calcium Hypochlorite is for water treatment – in the United States, more than 75% of Calcium Hypochlorite demand is associated with water pool treatment, municipal and industrial water treatment. Calcium Hypochlorite is also used as disinfectant and bactericide, fungicide; deodorant; oxidizing agent; and as a bleaching agent for paper and textiles. Other applications include sugar refining, chlorine production, pharmeceutical preparation, tanning auxiliary, algicide and odor control..

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.
