Antifreeze works by lowering the freezing temperature of the coolant in your car. Coolant is important because it stops the many different parts in your engine from overheating. Water is a cheap and effective coolant, but it freezes too quickly in cold weather. If the water does freeze, it may cause serious damage to the car’s radiator and other parts. Yet by lowering the freezing temperature of the water, antifreeze helps to keep moving parts at just the right level. This allows these parts to do their job without overheating, which in turn prevents corrosion and prolongs the life your car. There are a range of different types of antifreeze available in our St Helens Shop. For example, modern cars often require antifreeze with different additives to those with older engines. To ensure you find the right antifreeze for your car, simply call into store or call our team on 01744 808586. For maximum value and minimum cost, order online today.
What is Antifreeze
Antifreeze is an additive which lowers the freezing point of a water-based liquid and increases its boiling point. An antifreeze mixture is used to achieve freezing-point depression for cold environments and also achieves boiling-point elevation ("anti-boil") to allow higher coolant temperature. Freezing and boiling points are colligative properties of a solution, which depend on the concentration of the dissolved substance.
Because water has good properties as a coolant, water plus antifreeze is used in internal combustion engines and other heat transfer applications, such as HVAC chillers and solar water heaters. The purpose of antifreeze is to prevent a rigid enclosure from bursting due to expansion when water freezes. Commercially, both the additive (pure concentrate) and the mixture (diluted solution) are called antifreeze, depending on the context. Careful selection of an antifreeze can enable a wide temperature range in which the mixture remains in the liquid phase, which is critical to efficient heat transfer and the proper functioning of heat exchangers.
