Frequently Asked Questions
What happens in the cooling system?
On average, about 150 litres of coolant are pumped around the cooling system of a car engine each minute. This is even more in commercial vehicles. In doing so, the mixture of water and coolant comes into contact with numerous different materials. Unless the correct engine coolant is selected, the high temperatures and high pressure differences in the system create ideal conditions for corrosion 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 lead to failure of the cooling system and even damage the engine beyond repair. For this reason, vehicle 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 automobile manufacturers for many decades and has developed a suitable product for every engine.
