I am not a chemical anything but I was wondering if I could get some unbiased opinions re: CaCl vs. NaCl and its effects on mild steel or my car. I know that recently there has been a shift to use CaCl since it is a by-product of "Bruner Monds Method?" and it is lower cost. Is it substantially more aggressive and are anti rust additives in CaCl effective?
