Sodium Calcium Chloride is a chemical impossibility. Sodium and calcium are both metals, chlorine is a nonmetal. Just the word "chloride" without "mono" or "di" would indicate an ionic bond. These are formed with metals and nonmetals, however only one metal can bond with one nonmetal. Sodium Calcium Chloride (which would be NaCaCl3 if it was real) has two metals in it, and therefore is an impossible composition.
