Chloroferric or iron chloride is an inorganic compound and one of the very strong coagulants, which has acidic properties and has a very high corrosive power.

Iron chloride is available in two forms, FeCl2 or FeCl3.

In the production process of iron chloride, dry chlorine and iron are used, and to carry out the reaction between these two substances, heat of about 600 degrees Celsius is required. Finally, iron II chloride reacts with chlorine in the environment to iron III chloride.
