Arctic Blend® Antifreeze & Engine CoolantArctic Blend® ethylene glycol based prediluted 50/50 antifreeze/coolants feature the precise balanced factory-fill blend used by major auto and truck manufacturers. Ready-to-use products ensure proper chemistry when used at top-off for ultimate convenience and protection all in one. These premium quality antifreeze products are inhibited with Fleetguard® technology and formulated with virgin and equivalent purity recycled glycols and deionized water.
What is the difference between ethylene glycol and propylene glycol?
Ethylene glycol and propylene glycol are chemically similar. Ethylene glycol has the chemical formula C2H6O2. Propylene has the chemical formula C3H8O2. Ethylene glycol has a slightly higher boiling point than propylene glycol. Ethylene glycol is less expensive to produce and is more widely used. Propylene glycol is less toxic.
How does antifreeze differ from engine coolant?
Engine coolant is a generic term used to describe fluids that remove heat from an engine. Antifreeze is a more specific term used to describe products used to provide protection against freezing. Many people use these terms interchangeably, as we also do in this FAQ.
Can I add propylene glycol based antifreeze to my existing ethylene glycol based antifreeze?
Ethylene glycol and propylene glycol are chemically very similar and can be mixed without harming the cooling system. Ethylene glycol does have better heat transfer properties than propylene glycol. Adding propylene glycol does not make the ethylene glycol less toxic.
Is it true that cooling system problems are the leading cause of engine failures? Can using the right antifreeze help?
Yes, cooling system neglect is the leading cause of premature engine failure. Using the right antifreeze is only part of the solution. Poor water quality and incorrect dilution are root causes for most cooling system problems.
How often do I need to change my antifreeze?
You should always follow the vehicle or engine manufacturer's recommendations for antifreeze change intervals and cooling system maintenance.
