What Is Antifreeze?
Antifreeze is a liquid that helps to protect the vehicle’s operating system in particularly cold (or hot) environmental conditions. It is added to the cooling system to make sure that the water contained within the radiator and engine block does not solidify or evaporate if the temperature goes beyond a certain point. Modern-day antifreeze serves two purposes, insofar as it also helps to prevent an overheating engine by raising the boiling point of the modified fluid significantly. In addition, there are several other important additives, one of which is designed to prohibit corrosion, which would otherwise be a significant problem in the radiator.
