The primary function of ethylene glycol in the coolant is to offer anti-freeze anti-boil protection. Water is an active heat transfer fluid by itself. However, it has a limited operating temperature range. When combined with Glycol, the formulation offers a lower freezing point & a higher boiling point than either fluid used on their own.
Conventional style coolants are created using older technology but have a solid performance history. This traditional type of coolant will have a shorter lifespan than organic & is suited to earlier model vehicles.
Organic coolants are manufactured using a new process referred to as Organic Acid Technology (OAT). This process provides the ability to along lifespan due to low chemical depletion rate.
Note: Conventional & organic style coolants do not mix well together.
There are many types of corrosion that can occur in a cooling system, which is why a coolant with a good quality corrosion inhibitor package is required. Tectaloy coolants all contain an inhibitor package that provides maximum protection against corrosion.
