Glycols for cooling, air conditioning, and heating technology
Glysofor KF is an environmentally friendly, glycol-free low temperature cooling brine with an extremely low viscosity based on an aqueous potassium formate solution.
Glysofor KF serves as an antifreeze, corrosion protection agent and refrigerant (cooling brine) in industrial and food-related refrigeration circuits.
Its optimised viscosity enables energy costs of existing refrigeration systems to be reduced while at the same time increasing their refrigeration capacity; it also enables the dimensions of newly planned systems to be reduced.
Glysofor KF is supplied as a ready-to-use brine (KF15 – KF50) with frost protection values from -15 to -50 degrees Celsius.
Glysofor KF is free of nitrite, amine, phosphate, silicate and borate.

Any water in the system should be drained as completely as possible before filling the equipment. Small residual quantities and resultant slight dilution can be accommodated by Glysofor KF cooling brine.
Glysofor KF is supplied in five ready to use variants KF15 to KF50 and can be directly added to the equipment needing filling. The figures in the product name indicate the relevant cooling limit.
Only Glysofor KF must be used if the system needs topping up. Glysofor KF must never be mixed with cooling brines based on chlorides or glycols.
Our products are used in heating systems, air conditioners, industrial and cooling plants, heating pumps, solar plants, sprinkler systems and other systems which carry liquids.
