Drilling Mud Additive
Calcium Chloride is extensively used in oil and gas industry as an
additive for drilling mud to cool and lubricate the drilling bit. It also
helps in improving density of the mud to overcome formation
pressures and keep oil, gas, and water in place.
Freidel Craft Catalyst & Additive
Anhydrous Aluminium Chloride is used as a catalyst (especially in
Friedel-Crafts reaction) for the manufacture of Styrene,
Anthraquinone & in other dyestuffs (Green Colour), pharmaceuticals
It also finds use in ion exchange resins, lubricants, wood
preservatives, crude oil refining, as nucleating agent in the
manufacture of Titanium dioxide pigments.
Paper Sizing - Cellulosic fibers are anionic & hydrophilic in nature.
Poly Aluminium Chloride based Cationic coagulants are used for
neutralization of anionic trash of fiber and as sizing aid for neutral
and acidic sizing. Sizing makes the paper suitable for writing and
printing by avoiding penetration of water.
Bleaching - To produce high quality paper a pulp is required which
does not discolour during storage or go yellow when exposed to
sunlight, and which retains its strength. Bleaching with Stable
Bleaching powder achieves all three requirements and has the
additional advantage of improving absorption capacity.
Calcium Chloride is behind the Color Lock Technology which is the
mark for Brighter Colors, Bolder Blacks and quicker drying for faster
handling time and smudge-free, high-quality prints.
Phosphoric acid is used to produce water softeners. Water
softeners remove Calcium and Magnesium ions from "hard" water.
If not removed, these ions react with soap and form insoluble
deposits that cling to laundry and the washing machine.
