Antifreeze and Coolant Products

An overheated engine is nobody's best friend.

Even though it’s absolutely critical for your engine to function, it’s easy to overlook coolant. This may be partly because it’s not a fluid that needs frequent replacement like oil. The formulation for automotive antifreeze & coolant allows the fluid to serve two purposes simultaneously.

Year round, the formulation prevents the engine from overheating, protecting the engine and components from the extreme temperatures when operating your vehicle. The fluid properties allow it to transfer heat which is dissipated by the vehicle’s radiator. Even in winter, the engine temperature must be well regulated with the coolant to avoid excessive wear or damage.

In the winter, the fluid must remain in a liquid state even in extreme cold. The formula protects the liquid from freezing, allowing it to maintain the ability to cool the engine once it has been running for a while. Contact our experts for all your chemical needs.

Most frequent questions and answers

Antifreeze, or engine coolant, is a colored liquid that is mixed with water to help regulate your engine temperatures regardless of the weather. As the temperature outside changes from hot to cold, coolant is pumped throughout the engine block to maintain an even operating temperature. Antifreeze does more than just regulate temperature, however. Maintaining proper fluid levels also helps to prevent corrosion.

Yes and no. A number of liquids can technically serve as an engine coolant. In the earliest days of automobiles, water was used as coolant. It did the job well, for the most part until the temperature dropped below freezing. To keep the coolant from turning into ice, chemicals were added to drop the freezing point. These days, coolant is usually a roughly 50/50 mixture of water and those antifreeze additives (ethylene glycol). 

Engine coolant is mixed with water, usually at a 50/50 ratio, and poured into the proper reservoir in your engine. The chemical ethylene glycol is used as a base to create a liquid that is pumped through your car’s engine to regulate and maintain an optimal operating temperature during extreme hot or cold weather conditions.
Engine coolant, also known as antifreeze, is mixed with water to keep the radiator from freezing in extreme cold and overheating in extreme heat. There are many different types of coolant, so it’s important to know what variety is right for your car or truck.

There are varieties for every type of vehicle. Each one is specifically formulated to keep its designated engine type running in extreme temperatures while protecting specific components. It’s important to know the differences so you get the correct antifreeze for your vehicle.

Coolant liquid comes in different colors, most common is red. Each color is a unique formula that should not be mixed. The below chart will help you decipher which fluid is in your vehicle. Reminder, you can often find the recommended type of coolant in your vehicle’s owner’s manual.
