Fluid Phraseology

Ever wonder what all those terms on our data sheets mean and how they relate to heat transfer fluids?

Many people do. That’s why our glossary of terms is a popular resource for people who need to source fluid for a new system, find a suitable replacement fluid or troubleshoot a problem.

We’ve just added some more terms to the glossary too so I hope you’ll find it more helpful than ever. There’s some good information in there on things like flash point, the importance of antioxidants and how metal deactivators give you more options for your system construction.

We have some more changes in store for the glossary too so if you’ve noticed any terms we’re missing, by all means let us know.
