1，calcium formate can be used as a new type feeding addictive, adaptable for sorts of acidogenic mold inhibitor of feedstuff. It has the function of preventing diarrhea and dysentery and promoting digesting and absorbing.
1. As a new feed additive. Calcium formate weight gain, using calcium formate as a piglet feed additive, can promote piglets appetite and reduce the rate of diarrhea. Calcium formate is added to the feed in a neutral form. After the piglets feed on the digestive tract, they will release traces of formic acid, thus reducing the pH of the gastrointestinal tract. It promotes the growth of beneficial bacteria in the digestive tract and reduces the effects of the disease in piglets. During the first few weeks after weaning, adding 1.5% calcium formate to the feed can increase the growth rate of piglets by more than 12% and increase feed conversion by 4%.Domestic and foreign market research shows that adding 1% to 1.5% calcium formate in piglet diets can significantly improve the performance of weaned piglets. The German study found that adding 1.3% calcium formate to the diet of weaned piglets can improve the feed conversion rate by 7% to 8%. Adding 0.9% can reduce the incidence of diarrhea in piglets.
2，Industrial Grade CalcIt is used in building mortar and various concretes to accelerate the hardening speed of cement and shorten the setting time. Especially in winter construction, it avoids the slow condensation speed at low temperature, so that the cement can be put into use as soon as possible.ium Formate is widely used in Construction as early strength agent for cement .
3，Calcium formate is also used in Wear-resistant materials, flooring industry, tanning plant
