Abstract : The patent describes non-Newtonian fluids suitable for use as coolants. They contain various types of collagen reactant materials prepared in aqueous solution with catalytic materials. The fluids exhibit thermal catalytic chemical reaction when subjected to heat. The fluids in addition have a viscosity which is time dependent and subject to change without the necessity of heat. More particularly they exhibit endothermic heat transfer characteristics and a time dependent viscosity.
