What happens in cooling systems?
On average, around ca. 150 liters of coolant are pumped around the cooling system of a car engine each minute, and commercial vehicles have a much larger cooling system. The mixture of water and coolant can come into contact with up to a hundred different materials. Unless the correct engine coolant is selected, the high temperatures and high pressure drop in the system create ideal conditions for rust and cavitation. Without any protection, the cooling water can etch deep holes into the metal and damage the cylinder head, cylinder liners and water pump. This can cause the cooling system to fail and can even damage the engine beyond repair.
Motor manufacturers have very specific demands on the performance of engine coolants, depending on which materials they come into contact with. Glysantin® has been working in close cooperation with all leading motor manufacturers for many decades and has developed a suitable product for every engine.
How does Glysantin® work?
Glysantin® increases the boiling point of the cooling water to around 110 °C. Mixtures of water and Glysantin® can absorb more heat than pure water without boiling. Glysantin® is also very effective for preventing scale formation in cooling systems. Scale quickly tends to block the narrow channels in the system and prevents heat from being transferred to the ambient air. This can easily lead to overheating in the summer months. Glysantin® also performs very effectively as an antifreeze.
