How does cold weather affect auto radiators? ❄️🥶
If a vehicle’s cooling system hasn’t been properly maintained, it can lead to a lot of problems in the winter months. Fluids can freeze – and even if they haven’t quite frozen, they’ll not be flowing like they’re designed to – and hoses can crack in the cold. Here are just some of the adverse effects of cold weather on a vehicle’s radiator.
1. If water inside the radiator freezes, it puts a huge strain on the radiator casing and could cause it to crack and start leaking fluid
2. If the fluid in the cooling system’s lines freeze, they will become blocked and may even rupture
3. If the radiator freezes, cracks and starts leaking fluid, the coolant fluid could contaminate the transmission fluid, which will damage the transmission.

How often should you replace your coolant?
It’s ideal to periodically change the radiator fluid to maintain optimal cooling. Over time, dirt and contaminants can build up in the fluid and areas of the cooling system. Change in PH level over time can reduce the effectiveness of your coolant.
Most manufacturers recommend you flush your cooling system every 24-36 months or 40,000kms-60,000kms. If the vehicle is used in very hot, very cold or harsh environments, every 12-24 months would be more suitable.

For industrial products, we are the leaders!
ADRAD has developed an ingenious design called ADSHIELD®. It involves an integrated extra layer of material that protects the tube walls from erosion plus stronger construction and anti-corrosion treatment, so the radiator will last longer.
A normal radiator has exposed tube walls. These are typically 0.178mm thick and will eventually wear through when subjected to ongoing impact from airborne debris and grit.
ADSHIELD® is a unique fin design (provisional patent filed) that creates an arrangement of tiny shields that cover the normally exposed tube wall. The ADSHIELD® cores also use thicker (0.254mm) tube material for extra durability.
Visit 0800radiators.co.nz/ to learn more about the ADSHIELD® features and call us for more information! ... See MoreSee Less

Almost everybody's neglected regular maintenance at some point.
Sure, other priorities come up or a reminder gets missed: these things happen!
The difference comes down to people that, when they do remember, perform regular maintenance, and those that end up parked on the side of the road with steam coming out the bonnet!
Be one of the former - contact your local ADRAD radiator agent today.
