UK chemical company ReAgent is pleased to announce the launch of non-toxic Antifreeze (Propylene Glycol based). Unlike traditional ‘blue’ Antifreeze which contains toxic Monoethylene Glycol, the non-toxic variety is based on Propylene Glycol and provides a safe alternative as it is non-poisonous and does not harm the environment.

Non-toxic Antifreeze is used in the food industry for cooling systems of chiller cabinets, cold rooms, refrigeration units and walk-in refrigerators as it presents no health threats.

The decision to incorporate non-toxic Antifreeze into its range was customer-led as ReAgent Sales Manager Michael Gould explains, “We were getting a lot of enquiries from people who needed to use Antifreeze in environments where the presence of poisonous chemicals could pose serious health concerns. For example, any processes which involve food production and preparation must avoid the use of substances containing known toxins. Non-toxic Antifreeze is used in the food industry for cooling systems of chiller cabinets, cold rooms, refrigeration units and walk-in refrigerators as it presents no health threats.”

The product is also popular with the boating fraternity who favour it over traditional ‘blue’ Antifreeze when preparing to ‘winter’ their vessels. The ‘wintering’ process involves the removal of all water from the various onboard systems. Non-toxic Antifreeze is then used to replace the water to ensure that freezing is prevented during the cold winter months.

In spring, the non-toxic Antifreeze is drained from the various systems to remove the bulk of the product. The systems can then be safely flushed through to lake, river, canal or stream as any residual Antifreeze in the waste water is safe to release without causing harm to aquatic organisms.

ReAgent Technical Director Darren Wilson continues,”As a company we are proud of our accreditation to Environmental Standard ISO 14001:2004 and understand fully our shared responsibilities to protect the environment. As such, we are delighted to be able to offer non-toxic Antifreeze as an environmentally-friendly alternative where required.”

ReAgent also offers traditional ‘blue’ Antifreeze which is widely used to help protect engine cooling systems when temperatures fall below freezing and ‘red’ Antifreeze which contains a number of additives to prolong the life of engines and component parts.

ReAgent has over 35 years’ experience of manufacturing and selling chemicals and is now one of the leading online chemical companies within the UK. The company is recognized as a Quality Assured organization with accreditation to Quality Management System ISO 9001:2008 and is a recognized Investor in People.
