Modern engine coolants are more than just antifreeze, they are year round engine coolants that provide not only frost protection, but also protect the range of metals found in modern automotive cooling systems against corrosion.
Engine coolants must also have good compatibility with elastomers (rubber) and have low foaming and low scaling characteristics to ensure optimum heat transfer performance.
In addition they must be suitable for use in all cooling systems whether they are constructed from traditional ferrous metals or more modern aluminium alloys or polymeric composites. The use of specific corrosion inhibitors are not always the best choice, for technical or environmental reasons, therefore specialised formulations have been produced to meet strict criteria whilst maintaining the high performance levels required.
Our wide range of engine coolants and antifreeze products are fully compatible with the needs of modern passenger and light commercial vehicles, but also with heavy duty and heavy goods vehicles.
