Antifreeze Explained – Is It Possible To Freeze Anti-Freeze?

An antifreeze is an additive which lowers the freezing point of a water-based liquid. An antifreeze mixture is used to achieve freezing-point depression for cold environments and also achieves boiling-point elevation (“anti-boil”) to allow higher coolant temperature.

Freezing and boiling points are colligative properties of a solution, which depend on the concentration of the dissolved substance.

Even though the chemical is designed not to freeze in the harshest of winter conditions around the world, is there a point where it actually freezes into a solid? This time, we set out with “The King of Random” to put anti-freeze up against liquid nitrogen to see what happens.
