Abstract : This Technical Note documents a series of tests performed to determine the accuracy of automotive glycol antifreeze test strips when used measure to the freeze point of glycol-based deicing and anti-icing fluids. Also employed in the tests was a refractometer, the currently accepted method used to determine de/anti-icing fluid freeze points. Varying concentrations of water and de/anti-icing fluid were used to provide a variety of test freeze points. The results of the two freeze point measurement methods are compared and discussed, and a recommendation made. jg p.3
