Calcium Fluoride

CAS #: 7789-75-5


Uses: spectroscopy, electronics, lasers, and high- tempurature dry- film lubricants, dental applications, brake-linings; glass manufacturing

Hazard: Little acute toxicity.  CALCIUM FLUORIDE has weak oxidizing or reducing powers.  Redox reactions can however still occur. The majority of compounds in this class are slightly soluble or insoluble in water.  If soluble in water, then the solutions are usually neither strongly acidic nor strongly basic.  These compounds are not water-reactive.
