GLYSANTIN® COOLANTS

It Began with a Patented Idea

DER SCHUTZGARANT – SINCE 1929

The question of proper cooling already arose during the mid-twenties. BASF Chemist Dr. Otto Jordan was tasked with developing an antifreeze that would protect the already quite complex cooling systems in use. The original patent for GLYSANTIN®, the world’s very first antifreeze, was granted in 1929 and marks the birthdate of the brand. During the following decades GLYSANTIN® has successfully enabled and accompanied advancement in engine and coolant technologies and is committed to continue shaping the future.

HYDRAULAN® BRAKE FLUIDS

Pioneering Brake System Safety

PREMIUM QUALITY FOR PREMIUM SAFETY

BASF has been setting the market standard of brake fluids for more than 60 years. BASF was the first company to develop a low viscosity DOT 4 brake fluid, specifically for modern braking systems with electronic control systems such as ESP®/DSC, ABS and ASC. Together in partnership with both, automobile manufactures and OEM suppliers and as a member of the industry standards association we continue to develop and improve HYDRAULAN® brake fluids to meet both the current and future needs of the industry, and maintain the highest safety requirements demanded by customers.
