It is highly soluble in water. In addition, iIt has applications as brine for refrigeration plants, ice and dust control on roads, and in cement. It can be produced directly from limestone, but large amounts are also produced from brine wells. Because of its hygroscopic nature, it must be kept in tightly-sealed containers.
