Description

These antifreeze mixes need to be changed every 5 years and are specified for most cars manufactured after 2002 by Audi, BMW, Chrysler, Ford, Mercedes, Saab, Volvo and VW. The meaning of the word ‘antifreeze’ perfectly describes the fluid’s capabilities: stopping the fluids in an engine’s cooling system from freezing. Put simply, it’s an anti-freeze liquid. Red coolant is categorized as OAT antifreeze. It is less efficient than IAT coolant in fighting against corrosion. But changing intervals of red coolant is extremely long. It lasts roughly 5 years or 50,000 miles between changes. In fact, red coolant is well-known for its excellent stability. While the vehicle is in warranty, you should use only the vehicle manufacturers' recommended fluids.

Has the role of helping the engine to cool in the summer time (it keeps the engine from boiling over). Also protects the engine from freezing during winter. Ethylene glycol: the most common car antifreeze, used over glycerol due to its lower freezing point even though it’s toxic to humans. Ethylene glycol also the best antifreeze for providing protection against both cold and hot temperatures due to its heat transfer characteristics. Add the new coolant using the tips above and make sure you at least follow the 50-50 ratio. Best would be to read the instructions on the label to prepare the PERFECT mix. The first stage of antifreeze poisoning typically begins between 30 minutes and 12 hours after a person ingests it.Traditionally, there were two major corrosion inhibitors used in vehicles: silicates and phosphates. American-made vehicles traditionally used both silicates and phosphates. [21] European makes contain silicates and other inhibitors, but no phosphates. [21] Japanese makes traditionally use phosphates and other inhibitors, but no silicates. [21] [22] Organic acid technology [ edit ]

Once used for automotive antifreeze, glycerol has the advantage of being non-toxic, withstands relatively high temperatures, and is noncorrosive. It is not however used widely. [1] For example, older antifreezes used inorganic additive technology and were either blue or green. As technology progressed, antifreezes became silicate-free and used organic acid technology. These extended-life antifreezes tended to be orange. These days, the colour doesn’t reflect the product itself so it’s not easy to know which chemicals the antifreeze contains just by seeing whether it’s blue, green, yellow or orange. Is Antifreeze the Same as Coolant? Here is a list of the best antifreeze, followed by a buying guide to help you select the best antifreeze for your needs. Standard antifreeze for petrol or diesel engines: Inorganic antifreeze uses inorganic acid technology and contains ethylene glycol. This glycol-based water-free coolant can reduce the problems seen in a water-based coolant. Inorganic antifreeze should be flushed out properly after around 30,000 miles as it’s not silicate-free. Some of this inorganic antifreeze is suitable for older cars and come in either yellow or green. As a result, modern car owners don’t use IAT coolants and prefer red coolants that use improved OAT technology.Undesirable chemical interactions will severely ruin the cooling system components functioning characteristics. The only thing that the different hues are good for is to prevent the inadvertent mixing of two types of products.
