Calcium Formate is the calcium salt of formic acid. It is used as an animal feed preservative and in the European Union carries E-number E238. In feed applications it is used at 15g/kg max which can reduce the pH by 1.0 thus inhibiting the growth of microbes. Calcium formate also finds extensive use in the construction industry where it is used to increase hardness and decrease set time in cement grout and as a flame retardant in dry wall. Calcium formate is a co-product from the production of Trimethylolpropane.
