H.S Code: 28281000

Hazard Class: 5.1 (oxidizing substances)

UN Number: 1748

Physical Properties

Calcium Hypochlorite is a chemical compound with formula Ca(ClO)2,(the fact of calcium hypochlorite) it is a a strong oxidizing agent, according to the different production process, there are two types of products: "Calcium hypochlorite hydrated" and "Calcium Hypochlorite Anhydrous" they are all was used as its available chlorine.
The different calcium hypochlorite hydrated and anhydrous Preparation different flow chart:
Calcium Process (anhydrous calcium hypochlorite): 2 Ca(OH)2 + 2 Cl2 → Ca(ClO)2 + CaCl2 + 2 H2O
Sodium Process ((hydrated calcium hypochlorite): 2 Ca(OH)2 + 3 Cl2 + 2 NaOH → Ca(ClO)2 + CaCl2 + 2 H2O + 2 NaCl

Packing & Delivery

The packages: Packed in 15KG/20KG/25KG/40KG/45KG/50KG HDPE drums Lined with PP bags.

The shipment: Calcium hypochlorite is a UN 5.1, hazardous chemicals, it is dangerous for its chlorine content, this materials will loss its chlorine gas when it absorb the moisture once the original packages is broken or opened to the moisture. At higher temperatures these materials easily decomposed and generate heat, heating or mixing of impurities ( such as metal powder, Including iron, manganese, cobalt, magnesium, and their compounds) are easiy to cause them to decompose. when the calcium hypochlorite contact with the organic materials such like: sawdust and oil, it is may cause the fire with higher temperature..
