According to the American Concrete Institute, the
rate of chemical attack of calcium chloride on
concrete is “negligible”.
In an article titled, “Winter Weather, Deicers Need
Not Damage Concrete,” published by the Portland
Cement Association, calcium chloride is called one of
the “safest deicers for concrete”.
Independent laboratory tests produced results
consistent with the above statements.
The data indicates that scaling from calcium chloride was less
than that of other deicers, and comparable
to that of pure water.
