Antifreeze and antifreeze - means for cooling the car engine.
Some motorists do not see them as a fundamental difference, others doubt the quality of the good old antifreeze, and others, and does not fear the mixed liquid.
Of the anti fluid (antifreeze)
If the coolant in the jacketthe engine is flooded with water, in the case of leaving it in the cold, the ice is formed, expanding, necessarily damage the internal parts, if not break the body shirt. Special fluids prevent damage to vehicle components, because they have a lower freezing temperature and, in addition, upon crystallization antifreeze turns into mush, which is not able to bring harm detail. Crystallizing, antifreeze lose fluidity, therefore no longer able to fulfill its mission.
Antifreeze used as refrigerantsliquids for cars, created on the basis of ethylene glycol, diluted with water, with the addition of various additives. The last solution designed to give additional properties: anti-corrosion, anti-cavitation, anti-foam and fluorescent (dye).
Antifreeze - Antifreeze is also
It so happens that we are all forced to participate in the generated involuntarily paradox of the Russian language. Probably many have often heard this dialogue:
- You poured antifreeze?
- No, I do not antifreeze. I antifreeze.
TOSOL stands for: technology of organic synthesis OL (ie, alcohol).
Common name "antifreeze" was his own,although in this name a number of different brands, denoted by Latin letters and numbers. This initially own noun "antifreeze" became a household word. Meanwhile, the word "anti-freeze" is the common name for all non-freezing liquids. It is translated as "non-freezing, anti-freeze."
It can interfere with different brands of antifreeze
"Can I mix antifreeze with antifreeze?"- So often the question motorists, without going into the varieties of both. As noted, different brands of antifreeze contains a different set of additives, sometimes in conflict with each other. As a result, something that can precipitate and clog the system.
If you still had to travel to mix different coolant, upon arrival at the garage, rinse well with distilled water cooling system. The same should be done in the transition from one coolant to another.
Based on the foregoing, it is better notmix fluids, particularly if they have different distinctive colors. First of all it just refers to the domestic and foreign green antifreeze antifreeze, which are often red.
