15 best car antifreezes

Review of the best according to the editors. About the selection criteria. The the material is subjective, is not advertising and is not serves as a guide to the purchase. Before purchase is needed consultation with a specialist.

Security efficient removal of heat from a running engine – a task over which from the very moment the automobile industry has appeared thousands of specialists. Systems are being upgraded, changing manufacturing materials however lead in development diverted to coolants. Initially in this role plain water, but its cooling ability ended there, where did the boiling process begin? In addition, continuous heating led to the rapid evaporation of fluid from the system, led to the formation of scale and corrosion of metal elements.

Long (taking decades) search for the optimal formula the coolant bore fruit, and the place of water in the system took antifreezes – substances made from distillate and ethylene glycol with the addition of various additives (lobridic, carboxylic groups) and modifiers that suppress the action of corrosion.

Recently, antifreeze development has reached tremendous scale, and intensified the workflow not only official companies, but also the so-called “shadow” manufacturers, uninterruptedly supplying the market with fake goods. In view of this local “chaos” the user can not always make the right choice, because of which not only his car suffers, but also financial condition. Therefore, by conducting an independent analysis of the segment, the magazine selected 15 of the best antifreezes in three categories, generalized by price parameter. As an estimate for compiling the final top used user reviews, and also the verdict of a group of full-time experts who studied the product before the smallest aspects.

How to choose antifreeze

The topic of choice of antifreeze in fact is one of those where the principle and selection criteria are still not given in any semblance of order. In this regard, the editors offer your attention to your list of key characteristics for which Please note before buying:

Concentrate or finished product. The choice of antifreeze for This criterion is determined by the specifics of its use. If a temperature indicators in your area often go beyond -40 degrees Celsius, it makes sense to purchase a concentrate to be dilution with water in the required portions. If the temperature working conditions of the ready-to-pour antifreeze from the counter you completely satisfied, it will be preferable (and in terms of cost, and in terms of the lack of need for unnecessary actions) buy it exactly.

Class and color. This criterion shows which specification corresponds to the composition of the purchased antifreeze. The most popular in the automotive industry has become a classification, proposed by Volkswagen. According to her, all antifreezes are divided into three enlarged groups:

  1. G11 – silicate (most often have a green color, less often – blue or yellow);
  2. G12 – carboxylate (red, including all possible shades – from orange to pink);
  3. G13 – Lobrid (most often purple, but there are options and in yellow).

Each of them has its own set of useful properties, information about which is given in one of the comparison tables given below in the article. In addition, there is an extra-class fluid under the name of antifreeze, the features of which are also mentioned in the table. IN in the general case, the recommendations are as follows:

  1. we do not recommend pouring domestic-made antifreeze into cooling systems of foreign cars, because not all of their motors carry aggressive effects of compound acids;
  2. if the feature of the engine and cooling of your car is the content of a large number of brass and copper elements, then the best quality protection for them will be red antifreeze class G12;
  3. at high aluminum content in the engine and the closed system cooling the right step would be the acquisition of green antifreeze G11 with silicate base;
  4. G13 – a universal tool for comprehensive protection of the engine and cooling system, regardless of what they contain elements, age of the car and its degree of deterioration nodes.

Volume. This item is not basic, however consumers often make misses in the amount purchased antifreeze. If there is no leakage problem with your car system, then the optimal portion to buy will be 4-5 liters. If the machine is old or has a slight defect, which may leak antifreeze, it’s better to be safe, having bought on top another 1-2 liters for topping.

The main differences in antifreeze color classification

Color is a clear sign of specification antifreeze German corporation VAG (G11-G13 ++), and carries much more constructive rather than “pleasing visual diversity” as say some not very knowledgeable people. Let’s go let’s figure out what properties this or that group has chromaticity:

Antifreeze color

Advantages

disadvantages

Blue

Characteristic for antifreeze, not amenable to VAG classification (as it was made in the territory of the former USSR).

+ Low price

+ Boiling point is 110-115 degrees Celsius

– Extremely pronounced chemical activity, detrimental to car cooling systems

– To be replaced at least once every two years due to the full development of the volume of filler elements

– Poor compatible with engines of foreign cars

Green

Belongs to antifreeze class G11, created by silicate technology (sometimes yellow, and even blue fluid version).

+ Silicates that are part of antifreeze in the form of additives, envelop the surfaces of the elements of the cooling system, protecting them from corrosion and other damage.

– The created protective layer significantly reduces heat transfer rate

– Due to the effects of temperature changes and vibration insoluble silicate layer is destroyed, clogging the system and circulating in it as an abrasive element.

– Requires replacement at least once every two years

Red

Color indicating ownership as follows classes:

G12 – carboxylate antifreeze, leveling everything disadvantages of silicate analogues.

G12 + – a hybrid group of coolants, containing several groups of carboxylate acids.

+ Increased heat dissipation due to lack of formed “barriers”

+ Does not clog the system with insoluble compounds

+ Service life totals up to 5 years

+ Perfectly localizes and neutralizes foci corrosion, performing a kind of tread function

– Do not provide protection for system elements cooling from the action of random abrasive particles and other negative factors (excluding corrosion)

Yellow and purple

Antifreezes of the class G12 ++ and G13. Identical in that created by lobrid technology, including the addition of the organic base of a serving of mineral components. Possess similar strengths and weaknesses.

Their only significant difference is that G12 ++ antifreeze contains ethylene glycol, and G13 is an environmentally friendly and harmless propylene glycol base.

+ Have a hybrid effect, absorbing advantages of silicate and carboxylic antifreezes

+ Suitable for more than five years

+ The composition of G13 continues to develop actively and be modified

– Currently are the reference coolants, the only drawback of which is high price (As is the case with G12 ++, and with G13).

Which is better: antifreeze or antifreeze?

Antifreeze, a distinctive feature of which is pronounced blue (or blue) color, was developed back in time USSR, and quite expectedly lost relevance due to release antifreeze. However, in its use you can still find positive sides. What kind? Refer to the detailed table comparisons:

Type of coolant

Advantages

disadvantages

Antifreeze

+ Actual absence of fakes on the market, associated with the senselessness of the falsification process

+ Prices are much lower than quality antifreeze

– Consumption of a package of filler elements occurs uneven and more active

– Has a negative effect on aluminum parts contained in the system

– May cause slight damage to the skin and human mucosa (more dangerous to handle than antifreeze)

– There is a risk when using tholos occurrence of cavitation

– Under the influence of temperature and other operational factors forms insoluble compounds and gels, gradually delayed in cooling systems and worsening heat removal processes

Antifreeze

+ Low threshold of negative impact on plastic, rubber and aluminum elements of the cooling system and engine

+ Cooling efficiency higher than antifreeze (boiling also occurs at higher temperatures)

+ The additive package is consumed more slowly and more evenly, increasing the life of one fill

+ Counteracts the cavitation process, harmful acting on the fan of the water pump

+ Ensures consistent chemical composition, without the formation of insoluble inclusions and other clogging system of substances

– The production of counterfeit products is very developed.

The best low-cost antifreeze

SINTEC LUX G12

Rating: 4.8

SINTEC LUX G12

G12 carboxylate antifreeze from another eminent the manufacturer who earned the title of best thanks to the involvement in the production of LADA cars, no matter how strange it may be sounded. The fact is that, in addition to the popularity of SINTEC among consumers LUX G12 is trusted by AvtoVAZ who have chosen this fluid for factory filling in cooling systems of new cars, off the assembly line.

The standard life of this antifreeze is 5 years, or, in terms of mileage, 250 thousand kilometers for cars. Its freezing temperature is -40 degrees Celsius, and this threshold remains stable throughout the entire life cycle. Composition literally crammed with all kinds of organic additives, modifiers and catalysts, the combined action of which leads to an effective fight against traces of corrosion, scale, solid inclusions, and also allows you to keep the system in perfect cleanliness. Despite the ease of packaging, consumers do not too often complain about the purchase of fakes, which speaks of low interest in the product from manufacturers of counterfeit products. By the combination of features and control parameters, it is SINTEC LUX proved to be better than the rest, for which he was elevated to the rank the best antifreeze budget segment.

Advantages

  • a small number of fakes in the market;
  • crystallization occurs at a temperature of -40 degrees Celsius
  • stable chemical composition with the addition of a package of organic additives, modifiers and catalysts;
  • up to 5 years of guaranteed service with moderate mileage (up to 250 thousand kilometers);
  • optimal cost for the budget segment.

disadvantages

  • not found.

LUKOIL Red G12

Rating: 4.7

LUKOIL

A step away from the leading position of the rating is red antifreeze from the leading manufacturer of motor oil in the face of the company Lukoil, which has become a kind of quality standard for a large consumer segment. Meeting all the requirements of the G12 standard, coolant spends evenly and efficiently filler elements, which increases the service life of one fill up up to 6 years. The manifestation of such qualities was made possible thanks to the introduction of modifiers that minimize the risk of destruction additive package under the influence of temperature difference and performing the role of his “smart” activator.

However, the “Lukoil” Red G12 is not spared and quite sad circumstances. Due to extremely high popularity this antifreeze has become the most fake in the budget segment. But, as such, the manufacturer does not conduct the fight against counterfeiters, confining itself to indirect warnings from corporate clients about the importance of acquiring products through authorized dealers. Therefore, with all due respect to the quality of the original, we simply cannot assign Red the first line of the rating.

Advantages

  • large package of filler materials and modifiers affecting the degree of antifreeze activity;
  • reliable corrosion protection and neutralization the process of formation of solid inclusions;
  • honestly withstands up to -40 degrees of frost;
  • extremely delicate impact on rubber, plastic and metal parts of the cooling system.

disadvantages

  • the most counterfeit antifreeze in the budget segment.

Felix carbox g12

Rating: 4.6

Felix Carbox G12

Good carboxylate antifreeze standard G12, trapped in rating due to good reviews from the consumer segment. Positive qualities of domestic development in predominantly second-hand owners value cars (age from 8 to 12 years), noting the important cleansing properties, as well as a “smart” mechanism of action on the foci corrosion with a reduced consumption of additives to increase the life use one fill.

As experiments show, Felix Carbox provides active engine cooling, regardless of their power, be it (for example) turbocharged V6 passenger car or heavy-loaded unit of the cargo model. Boiling temperature this antifreeze is 110 degrees Celsius, which is 5 degrees above the standardized value. First signs crystallizations are manifested here when honestly declared on label -40 degrees Celsius, which is also a sign good product. The only caveat is the volume counterfeiting: due to the simplicity of the canister, shadow manufacturers do not it’s hard to make less quality copies, especially when considering the high popularity of budget liquid.

Advantages

  • antifreeze that meets all standards of class G12 (has tolerances ASTM D 3306, ASTM D 4985, KSM 2142, etc.);
  • copes with the functions of maintaining a satisfactory working condition of old engines;
  • boils at 110, and freezes at -40 degrees Celsius;
  • a mechanism for economical and efficient consumption of additives, allowing to increase the resource of one fill.

disadvantages

  • high probability to stumble on a fake in conditions retail market.

Highway G11 +

Rating: 4.5

Highway G11 +

Oddly enough, but despite the green color Highway G11 + is an organic carboxylate antifreeze additives and ethylene glycol, characteristic for products of class G12. Mark G11 + (or Long Life, as indicated on the bank itself) in this case means nothing more than a transition to a new set of existing substances, but preserving the traditional color, and appears rather as a powerful marketing weapon.

In general, the mechanism of action of Highway is no different from standard carboxylate antifreezes: the same pronounced anti-corrosion and scale protection functions keep the cooling system clean and ensure efficient heat sink. The liquid honestly fulfills the declared five years service, and also does not freeze up to -40 degrees Celsius. It is also noteworthy that antifreeze is supplied in cans, making the product unattractive to manufacturers counterfeit.

Advantages

  • formula G11 +, which, in fact, is analogous to G12, but in green color;
  • provides reliable protection of the system against corrosion and scale;
  • honestly withstands up to -40 degrees of frost;
  • the term of full development of the resource of one fill is 5 years old.

disadvantages

  • the most expensive product in the budget segment.

Starex red

Rating: 4.5

Starex Red

Opens the ranking of the best low-cost antifreeze development from Starex compliant carboxylate refrigeration class liquids G12. It has a red color with fluorescent additives and organics that have an inhibitory effect on foci of corrosion. In addition, ethylene glycol based formula is actively counteracts limescale by protecting the cooling system from abrasion from solid deposits and clogging.

Qualitatively, Starex Red meets almost all the requirements international standards SAE J 1034, ASTM D 3306 and ASTM D 4985, for the exclusion of individual operational aspects. In particular, The freezing point of the liquid was also slightly underestimated: the label indicates -40 degrees Celsius, however in operation crystallization of the carboxylate composition begins already at -35 degrees. An unfortunate aspect, which, however, is also without “winding up” It looks very worthy.

Advantages

  • low price for class G12 fluid, even by budgetary standards segment;
  • works well in neutralizing and inhibiting scale formation;
  • has a fluorescent additive, the flow rate of which shows degree of suitability for further operation.

disadvantages

  • the actual freezing temperature of antifreeze diverges from declared;
  • You can stumble on a fake.

The best antifreeze for cars in terms of ratio price quality

Liqui Moly Langzeit GTL12 Plus

Rating: 4.9

Liqui Moly Langzeit GTL12 Plus

And again, this time the leader of the category, the product from well-known German company Liqui Moly, which, although it costs quite expensive but highly respected among car owners around the world. Why, you ask? After all, the class G12 is already long ceased to be an innovative alternative, although it continues keep the brand of a solid set of standards. The fact is that Germans have a different approach to quality assurance than other manufacturers, thereby bringing their products to this plan to the highest limits. And the Langzeit GTL12 Plus is not an exception.

This unique antifreeze combines several types carboxylate acids, and, according to a number of experts, a small amount of mineral additives that work for the benefit general concept of protecting the engine and cooling system. Little unsettled by the fact that the official website recommends (!) replace antifreeze once a season, which is cardinal contrary to common sense and any laws of logic. According to the reports of the same experts, the liquid feels great and when replaced every five years, ensuring absolute cleanliness system.

Advantages

  • excellent combination of price and quality;
  • the ability to tolerate temperatures from -40 to 155 degrees Celsius
  • high standards of ethylene glycol base and diverse composition additive package;
  • huge confidence in the product from car manufacturers and car owners.

disadvantages

  • not found.

SINTEC UNLIMITED G12 ++

Rating: 4.8

SINTEC UNLIMITED G12 ++

As the official description of SINTEC UNLIMITED G12 ++ reads – the only lobride antifreeze produced in the territory Russian Federation. Its strengths are traditionally for of its class, steel has a universal formula with carboxylate and mineral additives, as well as high temperature stability, allowing to withstand temperatures up to 160 degrees Celsius. Needless to say, in this situation and anti-corrosion, and prevention of formation processes was the scum soaked to the maximum?

In addition, SINTEC UNLIMITED G12 ++ was most clearly expressed cavitation suppression function, which slowly but surely deduces from building a cooling system pump. If we talk about the shortcomings, then in First of all, the abundance of fakes on the inside is striking the market. SINTEC has been criticized more than once for being indifferent to consumer problems, including the problem of falsification own goods. Dramatically review packaging methods she He doesn’t want to, as well as switch to less radical fillings devices by which you can distinguish dishonest goods. So or otherwise, the product itself in the original is very good, and even in view of high cost definitely deserves one of the leading places in the ranking of the best.

Advantages

  • hybrid formula based on maximally purified elitenglycol;
  • absolute safety for system components cooling;
  • boils at 160 degrees Celsius;
  • provides cooling and protection of the cooling circuit by 5 years old;
  • perfectly resists the formation of mineral deposits, corrosion and various destructive processes vulnerable elements.

disadvantages

  • a huge number of fakes in the domestic market.

FELIX PROLONGER -40

Rating: 4.8

FELIX PROLONGER -40

Cheap enough antifreeze, let’s not hide it, slightly overpowered abilities which is so much loved by consumers that put it below third place rating would be reprehensible. PROLONGER using already outdated formula of the G11 standard, different hybrid composition, where, in addition to silicates, a little carboxylate was added acids and organics. Thus, despite the overall similarity to other members of the class, his abilities are not limited the notorious creation of silicon film on top of system parts cooling. Organic additives added so important to antifreeze corrosion inhibiting and scale formation property and deposits of a solid fraction of substances.

If manufacturers were obviously deceiving with the freezing temperature, then about boiling point painted more than objectively. 109 degrees Celsius – not the most outstanding result, but hardly anyone would dare to bring the motor to such values. In general, if you neglect the small disadvantages inherent in liquids of the initial class, you will get a very reliable antifreeze, extremely popular in consumer circles.

Advantages

  • very low price;
  • high popularity among domestic consumers;
  • silicate-based hybrid formulation with addition organic additives and carboxylate acids;
  • boils at 109 degrees Celsius;
  • Stably works for three years.

disadvantages

  • the freezing temperature of the liquid is underestimated by 3-5 degrees.

AGA Z65

Rating: 4.7

AGA Z65

Antifreeze with a rich complex of “anti” substances in the composition is a very good example of how, in general, an unknown product becomes a real market leader in terms of sales. His the advantage over competitors was that, being concentrate with a freezing point of about -65 degrees Celsius, actual cost classified it as standard antifreeze budget segment. As a result, users suddenly noticed in this personal benefit and did not fail to take advantage of the yellow coolant standard G12 ++.

Another significant advantage of the AGA Z65 is the ability mix with absolutely any antifreeze based on ethylene glycol. The already hybrid composition, when added there, say silicate fluid G11, enhanced the action of protective mechanisms of polymer parts, while at the same time complicating somewhat the process of “treatment” of the centers of corrosion on the metal. In general, breeding perfectly working formulas by trial and error – entirely consumer prerogative, and for this the manufacturer should be given due. Alas, I didn’t get to the leading positions of the AGA Z65 rating, but it certainly deserves inclusion in it.

Advantages

  • can be mixed with other ethylene glycol antifreezes basis;
  • in concentrated form, the freezing temperature is -65 degrees Celsius (and boiling – 132);
  • extended package of filler materials (antioxidant, anti-corrosion, anti-foam and anti-friction);
  • very competitive price;
  • the presence of fluorescent additives to indicate a possible leak system.

disadvantages

  • not found.

Another product of the Japanese part of the manufacturers segment, designed to fill Toyota cars. Produced exclusively as a concentrate, and for this method distribution is very adequate. Long Life Coolantis a red liquid typical of the standard G12, undiluted able to withstand up to -80 degrees of frost. For residents of the northern regions in which the temperature often drops below -40 degrees Celsius – great product. Therefore, it becomes clear that with the advent of the domestic market began to pour it not only in the famous car Japanese brand: even if antifreeze does not have the appropriate tolerance, consumers (owners of Russian cars) entirely rely on its quality indicators.

If we talk about the situation in more detail, then by our action Toyota Long Life Coolant Red is virtually no different from direct competitors. Corrosion control at the level, as well as resistance to soot, boiling starts only at 140 degrees Celsius, and the reserve of resources is enough for 5 years of successful use. There is only one small advantage: you can dilute the concentrate in any proportions, even to obtain breathtaking operating temperatures.

Advantages

  • a small number of fakes in the market;
  • the concentrate can be diluted in any desired proportions;
  • Japanese quality manifested not only in cooling systems Toyota cars;
  • increased number of active additives.

disadvantages

It is used mainly for pouring in cars of Lexus, Mitsubishi, Honda, Suzuki and the like (according to country of origin), but are often used in as antifreeze for domestic cars. Worth it by the standards categories are quite expensive, but makes up for it with a good performance and positive effects of the application.

In particular, consumers report a very high TCL activity. Power Coolant in relation to metal oxides. Split an objectionable chemical compound occurs literally later a few days after pouring, and the effect of exposure to protect parts continues throughout the life of the product. Which to in a word, is 4 years, subject to moderate use vehicle. Among other things, in organic composition additives include a small portion of the mineral components that create microstructural protective film on polymers and non-ferrous metals. Thus, TCL’s innovative antifreeze not only allows solve the problems of heat removal, but also significantly reduce wear of engine cooling system elements.

Advantages

  • hybrid composition reinforced by modifiers and mineral additives;
  • does not freeze up to -40 degrees Celsius;
  • provides comprehensive protection for the group of materials used when creating engine cooling systems;

Rating: 4.5

MOTUL INUGEL EXPERT

G11 coolant continues to use popularity in the domestic market even despite a solid a stream of recent competitors. Her results use cannot be called reference (especially from the moment of release antifreeze G13), however, it still contributes to the engine contributes. In particular, the formation of a silicate layer that protects metal and polymers from aggressive exposure to acidic environment, as well as preservative foci of corrosion. True, an effective fight against you will not wait for rusting: there are very few inhibitors in the composition, and they cannot penetrate through a dense solid film.

If we talk about the operational capabilities of MOTUL INUGEL EXPERT, we can note a good start temperature for G11 crystallization and boiling – -36.4 and 135 degrees Celsius respectively. Due to the nominally high quality of services French antifreeze appeals to many automakers in in particular, Peugeot and concern are most loyal General Motors. However, in the domestic market, consumers are increasingly faced with cheap fakes, which negatively affects prestige companies in the antifreeze segment. However, Motul itself does not trying to make a difference, even with a trivial improvement packing containers.
