Antifreeze Offers Winter Profit Opportunity With Comma

For technicians to protect warranties, vehicles being serviced must be re-filled or topped up with the exact OE-antifreeze that was used originally.

Antifreeze has become as ‘vehicle specific’ as engine oil. There are now three very distinct technologies used as ‘original fill’ by vehicle manufacturers, which perform the same essential functions:

•    prevent freezing and overheating
•    protect against corrosion and erosion.

But their chemical additive ‘packages’ are entirely different from one another and cannot be mixed or substituted. This makes winter servicing with manufacturer-approved antifreeze a significant profit opportunity that independent workshops should be quick to grasp on.

Comma’s antifreeze application data covers the entire UK vehicle parc, dating back over 30 years, with every one of the 7000+ recommended applications being covered by a 100% guarantee of compatibility and quality.
