Antifreeze: From Glycol to a Bottle on the Shelf—Manufacturing and Quality Control Considerations


Two parties in this path to provide to the end user a quality product in a quality package will be presented. They are the coolant producer and contract blender/packager. The coolant manufacturer must establish specifications, test methods, and formulation data for the contract blender/packager. The contract blender/packager is responsible, as a minimum, to assure the coolant manufacturer's requirements are met. Major contract blender/packager programs in many cases have highly developed quality programs. ISO 9002 certifications have been issued to some organizations. This paper addresses a path from the ethylene glycol molecule to a final packaged product and quality considerations necessary to assure final product quality. Specific specifications for components are proprietary information.
