Antifreeze

An antifreeze is a chemical additive which lowers the freezing point of a water-based liquid. An antifreeze mixture is used to achieve freezing-point depression for cold environments and also achieves boiling-point elevation (`anti-boil`) to allow higher coolant temperature. Freezing and boiling points are colligative properties of a solution, w.....
