Around the World
Antifreeze is a product that can be found in every DIY shop around the world! However, the actual preferred formulation varies greatly from place to place, depending on local needs. The basic ingredient is always either propylene glycol or ethylene glycol, but the remaining ingredients, although representing only a small fraction, can influence the products’ characteristics.
- Antifreeze in Europe: Problems with hard-water led to the development of phosphate-free products. If not, elements present in the water can react with phosphate and form corrosive precipitates. Most products available throughout Europe are known as hybrids and contain silicates and carboxylates instead.
- Antifreeze in the USA: Most American products are coloured green, and are heavily phosphate-based in their corrosion mixture, as the water does not pose the same problem as in Europe.
- Antifreeze in Asia: Interestingly, in this region, the products mainly contain carboxylates and phosphates, and avoid silicates. They’re also considered hybrid products.
- Worldwide antifreeze: To meet (virtually) everybody’s needs, recent products contain only carboxylates. They contain no silicates or phosphates, so they can be used in Europe and Asia and are becoming very popular options. These products have performed very well during testing, but unfortunately cannot be mixed with conventional phosphate-based products.
