On average, around ca. 150 liters of coolant are pumped around the cooling system of a car engine each minute, and commercial vehicles have a much larger cooling system. The mixture of water and coolant can come into contact with up to a hundred different materials. Unless the correct engine coolant is selected, the high temperatures and high pressure drop in the system create ideal conditions for rust 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 cause the cooling system to fail and can even damage the engine beyond repair.
Motor 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 motor manufacturers for many decades and has developed a suitable product for every engine.
