Calcium Chloride ions react with left over cement hydration products to form complex salts. These salts form crystals which grow within the concrete and create tensile stresses in the concrete. Additionally, calcium chloride damages concrete through the formation of oxychloride. Oxychloride is formed between calcium chloride and water. The amount of calcium chloride needed depends on the amount of cement used, so the mix designer talks about calcium chloride content as a percent by weight of cement. Chemists and engineers are concerned with the amount of chloride ion per cubic yard of concrete because the chloride ion concentration can affect the rate of corrosion.
The calcium chloride test kits measure the Moisture Vapor Emission Rate (MVER) from the surface of a concrete slab. Also called dome test kits, they use the Anhydrous Calcium Chloride Vapor Emission Method and conform to ASTM (American Society for Testing and Materials) F and F What Is the Calcium Chloride Test? The calcium chloride test is one of the most commonly used concrete moisture measuring methods, but has fallen by the wayside as more improved moisture tests have risen. This test measures moisture vapor emission rate (MVER) and is executed by placing a small dish of calcium chloride under a plastic covering.
Ammonium chloride, ammonium nitrate and many other ammonium salts act as acids to attack concrete and dissolve the cement. If ammonium chloride were used it would probably show up as calcium chloride during chemical analysis of the mortar. Owners should be emphatically warned about the highly damaging effects of ammonium salts. Calcium Chloride is used as a cold weather accelerator for concrete. Concrete hydration is very slow when it is cold. This is why accelerators such as Calcium Chloride are used in order to achieve high initial strength. It is preferred because it is .

Compression Strength. As calcium chloride is used as accelerator in the concrete, it increases the hardening rate of the concrete.
ASTM C requires an increase of at least per cent over the control concrete at 3 days, but at 6 months or one year the requirement is only 90 per cent of the control specimen.
The addition of calcium chloride promotes certain desirable properties and affects others; but the performance of a concrete containing calcium chloride admixture can reasonably be predicted only when both the short- and long-range effects have been established. Such knowledge permits judicious use of admixtures.
Chloride Percentages” (ACI SP ), showed that the common dosage of 2% flake calcium chloride by weight of cement produces % chloride ion by weight of cement. Thus, if there were no other sources of chlorides in the concrete, the 1% limit on chloride ion in ACI would still be met with aFile Size: KB.
Calcium chloride can reduce resistance to this process. Effects of Calcium Chloride on Concrete. The addition of calcium chloride to a concrete mixture in residential and commercial applications has the following effects in its physical properties: Setting Time: Adding calcium chloride to concrete can reduce its setting time by up to two-thirds.
With a 2% admixture of chloride. The present results indicate that with good concrete practice in mix design, depth of cover, and specification of materials, the additional corrosion induced by the use of flake calcium chloride up to about 2 % by weight of the cement in dense normally cured ordinary Portland cement concrete will have no structural significance.
Calcium chloride offers many advantages that make it popular as a concrete accelerator. It causes a substantial increase in early strengths and it speeds rate of set. It is readily available.
It dissolves easily in water. The beneficial effects of calcium chloride will be even more pronounced at lower temperatures.
The accelerated cure rate measured as final concrete set time can be reduced by two-thirds when two per cent calcium chloride is added - two hours compared to six hours for plain concrete.* Morris Chemicals & S.E.R.T.'s calcium chloride can accelerate cement hydration.
When flakes or granules of calcium chloride are introduced directly in the mixer, these flakes and granules have not always enough time to dissolve during the mixing of concrete. Undissolved calcium chloride may generate undesirable dark spots on concrete surface.
View chapter Purchase book Corrosion and Degradation of Engineering Materials. A calcium addition of 2% by volume is a standard calcium amount to increase concrete setting times. A five gallon bucket full of concrete would require only a small handful of calcium to accelerate the setting dramatically.
A medium Tim Hortons coffee cup of calcium would increase the set time of almost pounds of mixed concrete. Chlorides may enter concrete from a variety of sources: from calcium chloride (CaCl 2) added as an accelerating admixture; from de-icing salts used on pavements and bridge decks; and from seawater or salt spray.
Chloride ions will destroy the passive iron oxide film on the steel, even at high values of pH, leading to corrosion of the steel. Dry, or anhydrous, calcium chloride is referred to by Hill Brothers’ trade name as Hi Hill Brothers offers two different dry products as Hi 94 Prill and Hi 94 products are high purity manufactured calcium chloride with a typical CaCl 2 content of 94% and both meet the ASTM D specification for Ready-Mix Concrete.
Hi 94 Prill is a white deliquescent granule. Chloride Content Limit in Concrete Structures. The chloride content limit is the amount of chloride that must be present in concrete along with oxygen and moisture in order to facilitate corrosion. Table-1 below shows theACI code limits of water soluble chlorides.
These are limits that must be met when designing the mix proportions. Calcium chloride (CaCl 2) is a well-known inexpensive accelerator that is used to accelerate the setting and compressive strength of concrete. Ghataora et al.  used 2% CaCl 2 by weight of cement in mortar and indicated that the CaCl 2 improved the compressive strength at early age.
BSConcrete, section A, Table A.8 limits the chloride ion content from all sources, by mass of cement, to % for normally reinforced concrete and to % for prestressed reinforced concrete. Calcium chloride was often used as a flake and was poorly mixed into the concrete.
Calcium chloride is used as an accelerator in the hydration process of m chlorides decrease the setting time of concrete and lead the quick settlement of concrete to get high initial strength of concrete. 2% calcium chloride can add as a Maximum permissible limit in concrete.
Methods to add Calcium Chloride. Calcium chloride is available in different. Calcium chloride is a salt, like rock salt -- or sodium chloride -- and it can come into your house on your shoes, through pores in a concrete pad or.

Calcium chloride accelerates the rate of hydration of freshly placed concrete and lowers its free water content faster. This allows concrete to escape potential freeze damage in a matter of days, as opposed to the weeks it can take normally. Calcium chloride is the most effective and least expensive cold weather accelerator for concrete.
But its use may be limited by building codes or. Contractors should dilute the calcium chloride in the water for the concrete batch and then mix it with the sand and crushed stone.
The cement can then be added to the mix. Effects of calcium chloride on concrete. As mentioned before, calcium chloride speeds up the setting time of concrete and allows it to develop high initial strength.The calcium chloride moisture test has been the industry standard for making this determination and is a practical, well-established and accepted test of dynamic moisture.
It will produce quantified results directly applicable to flooring manufacturer's specifications.The calcium chloride vapor emission test was developed over 40 years ago to quantify the volume of water vapor radiating from a concrete slab surface over time.
This test is directly specified by the vast majority of the Floor Covering Industry as the primary measure of moisture acceptability for floor covering installation.
