How it works

Burke Coolants in Co-Branding partnership with BASF, manufacturers of Glysantin®, protects your engine. The high temperatures in the cooling system and the presence of the water that is used to dilute the coolant create ideal conditions for corrosion. The water pump or even the whole cooling system can be damaged if no coolant is used, and this can cause the engine to fail. Burke Coolants protects all of the material used in the cooling system and prevents the radiator and the whole engine from damage.

Corrosion inhibitors play a decisive role in protecting the engine. They react with the metals in the cooling system and form a very thin but extremely hard-wearing passive layer on the surface. Burke Coolants protects all of the materials in the cooling system from damage, including components made from rubber and plastics. The products in the Burke Coolants range of premium coolants reliably protect your engine from damage.

Tips for the correct coolant

  1. Burke Coolants is not just an antifreeze: it protects the cooling system all year round.
  2. If the vehicle is six years old or older, you need to change the coolant every three to four years.
  3. The coolant should always be changed completely after repairs have been done and the cooling system should be flushed out and cleaned.
  4. Burke Coolants can be purchased in concentrate or pre-mixed form.
  5. If you purchase concentrate you must always dilute with clean water.
  6. Always take care to ensure that concentrated coolants are diluted in the correct proportions.
  7. Never mix different types of coolant.
  8. Always follow the instructions of the motor manufacturer.
  • Getting the best results from your coolant

    The coolants used in passenger vehicles need to be changed every three to four years, depending on the type of product. This is important, because the additives contained in the coolant gradually break down. Burke Coolants still prevent the cooling water from freezing, but it can no longer be fully ensured that the customized additives will still be able to protect the cooling system from corrosion.

    It is important to completely drain all of the old cooling water. The best results are obtained if the cooling system is flushed with water before the new coolant is poured in. Please note that cooling water may not be discharged into the drains. It is important to ensure that the coolant is approved by the manufacturer of the vehicle.

  • How should coolants be diluted?

    Burke Coolants Concentrate antifreeze/coolant is best diluted with demineralized or distilled water. Also tap water can mostly be used if it is not harder than 3.5 mmol/l. If your water quality is unclear or your tap water very hard we recommend to always use demineralized or distilled water.

    Frost protection down to Parts of Glysantin Parts
    -20℃ 1 2
    -27℃ 1 1,5
    -38℃ 1 1

    When changing coolant, we recommend diluting Burke Coolants Concentrate 50:50 with water and we would recommend using standard Burke Coolants products to ensure optimum protection from corrosion, overheating and frost.

    Make sure that you dilute the coolant correctly: the concentration of Burke Coolants should not be less than 33% and not more than 60%.

  • Is it possible to mix different types of coolant?

    It is important to make a distinction between coolants that contain silicates and those that are free of silicates. Different types of products should never be mixed with each other, because this impairs the effectiveness of the additive packages. In the worst case, lasting damage can be done to the engine.

  • What happens when the wrong engine coolant is used?

    Mixing different engine coolants or using the wrong coolant can impair the performance of the special additive packages, and this can result in increased corrosion to the radiator. The passive layer in the cooling system gradually becomes thinner and more porous and the engine coolant needs to be changed at more frequent intervals. Using the wrong engine coolants can gradually lead to corrosion and damage to the water pump, radiator, radiator hoses and cylinder gasket. This can lead to engine failure in the worst case.

  • How often do coolants have to be changed?

    Engine coolant additives such as the pH buffer are gradually broken down and become less effective with age. We therefore recommend a complete change of coolant every three to four years. It is also strongly recommended to clean the cooling system and completely renew the coolant whenever a repair is made to the cooling system. This prevents the rust, soil and suspended particles left behind in the system from causing scale, corrosion and other damage.

  • How can Burke Coolants be purchased?

    Burke Coolants can be purchased as Concentrate or pre mixed 'Ready to use' products.
