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. Coolants must also have good compatibility with elastomers and have low foaming and low scaling characteristics to ensure optimum heat transfer performance.
Modern coolants must be suitable for use in all cooling systems whether they are constructed predominantly from traditional ferrous metals or the more modern aluminium alloys and polymeric composites.
In certain applications the use of special corrosion inhibitors is not permissible or desirable for technical or environmental reasons. Specialised formulations are required to meet these criteria and maintain high performance levels.
Our products are suitable for a large range of vehicles, from passenger to heavy goods vehicles. We have highlighted each product with this simple guide:
These products are ethylene glycol based engine coolant concentrates formulated for use in all engines including those constructed from aluminium alloys. They employ established inhibitor technology and are nitrite, amine and phosphate (NAP) free and includes borate and silicate. These products exceed the requirements of many European and International Standards including: AFNOR R15-601, ASTM D3306, SAE J 1034 & BS 6580-2010.
This ethylene glycol based engine coolant uses inhibitors employing organic acid technology (OAT) to provide long lasting corrosion protection.
Exceeds the requirements of BS 6580-2010 and ASTM D-3306 Type 1 and meets the requirements of most motor manufacturers. This product is phosphate, nitrite and amine free.
This Ethylene Glycol based coolant concentrate uses Organic Acid Inhibitor technology, together with silicate. This ensures optimum corrosion protection for the latest high performance engines constructed from modern light-weight alloys.
It is free from nitrites, amines, phosphates and borates. SiXLC6 employs sophisticated stabilisation technology to ensure that it has excellent hard water stability and very low inhibitor depletion rates.
SiXLC6 exceeds the requirements of BS 6580-2010 and ASTM D-3306 Type 1 and meets the requirements of a number of motor manufacturers.
HD4X is an ethylene glycol based engine coolant concentrate formulated for optimum performance
in heavy duty diesel engine applications but equally suitable for light duty use. It employs established inhibitor technology and is phosphate and amine free.
The inhibitors in HD4X include organic acids in combination with borate, silicate and nitrite which
are well known for their ability to provide excellent protection in heavy duty applications particularly where there is potential for cavitation erosion-corrosion to occur.
HD4X uses sophisticated stabilisation technology to eliminate the potential for formation of silicate gel (often observed with inferior products). Other additives ensure good compatibility with hard water. These prevent the formation of scale that can result from dilution with hard water.
HD5X is a premium ethylene glycol based engine coolant concentrate formulated for optimum performance in all engines including heavy duty diesel engine applications.
It employs hybrid inhibitor technology and is nitrite, amine and phosphate free.
The inhibitors in HD5X include organic acids in combination with borate and silicate, which is a well proven inhibitor technology renowned for its ability to provide excellent corrosion protection.
uses sophisticated silicate stabilisation technology to eliminate the potential for formation of silicate gel often observed with inferior products, whilst other additives ensure good compatibility with hard water and prevent the formation of scale that can result from use of hard water. HD5X does not contain linear organic acids such as 2-ethyl hexanoic acid which have been implicated in certain hose and seal compatibility issues in older vehicles.
This revolutionary antifreeze is made from mono propylene glycol (MPG) which is much less toxic than traditional
MEG based products. Extensive tests show that well inhibited mono propylene glycol based antifreezes are just as effective as MEG based products in providing freeze and corrosion protection.
• Advanced mono propylene glycol based formulation
• Signi cantly reduced toxicity, yet similar freeze/ corrosion performance compared to MEG based alternatives
• Exceeds requires requirements of BS 6580-2010, AFNOR NFR 15-601 and ASTM D-3306 Type III
Unlike traditional engine coolants that are based on glycol, a synthetic material derived from fossil fuels, GXLC5 is based on glycerine, a natural material that is a by product from bio-diesel production and is derived from renewable resources. GXLC5 is non-toxic to both humans and animals, is non-hazardous to the environment and is readily biodegradable.
- Unique formulation – It is a wholly glycerine based product with an OAT inhibitor package.
- Biodegradable & manufactured from renewable resources – sustainable and good for the environment.
- It comes in ready to use form as 50% pre-dilute – so being ready to use means its supplied in a convenient format with ease of use for the customer.
- Safe to use – It has the benefits that it is non-toxic and non-hazardous as well.
- Bespoke blend formulation – we can supply the product dyed in accordance with your requirements.
