Summary (All Propylene Glycol Properties Listed on Product Pages, See Below)
Dowfrost™ Food Grade Propylene Glycol heat transfer fluid includes a specially designed package of industrial corrosion inhibitors. Food grade antifreeze solutions have an operating temperature range of -50°F to 250°F (-46°C to 121°C).
In applications where toxicity is a concern, propylene glycol fluid is used because of its low acute oral toxicity vs. the moderate acute oral toxicity of ethylene glycol. If you do not require food grade glycol (lowest oral toxicity), we recommend DOWFROST HD™ propylene glycol as it provides a higher level of corrosion protection while still containing a lower oral toxicity than that of ethylene glycol. If you require the lowest possible toxicity available, then Food Grade DOWFROST antifreeze (non-toxic antifreeze) is right for you.
