Ecologically and Environmentally Friendly Non-Toxic Heat Transfer Fluid with Antifreeze for use in Geothermal & Air Source systems. Based on Refined Vegetable Extracts and BS6580 & ASTM D1384 proven Corrosion, Scale and Biological Inhibitors.

Thermox FXC2 has been especially formulated to provide Geothermal and Air Source Heat Pump installers with a heat transfer fluid that is 100% RENEWABLE. I.E. not derived from non-renewable crude oil. Thermox FXC2 is based on sustainable Refined Vegetable Extracts that are Non-Toxic, Bio-Degradable and more thermally efficient than Propylene Glycol based coolants. Subsequently Thermox FXC2 could be considered the most ecologically friendly antifreeze available.

Antifreeze AntiFreeze

Thermox FXC2 is miscible with water in all proportions and can protect Geothermal and Air Source systems down to -50°C depending on concentration.

Thermox FXC2 exhibits super-cooling characteristics and mixtures containing in excess of 50% by volume do not freeze solid, alleviating any concern over possible expansion and burst damage.

non toxic Non-Toxic

Thermox FXC2 has an LD50 toxicity rating (Oral Rat) of ≥15,000 mg/kg of body weight (bw) = “Relatively Harmless”. As confirmed by the Hodge & Sterner Scale.

Renewable Renewable

Manufactured using a blend of refined vegetable extracts. I.E. they do not contain any crude oil derived or synthetic constituents

Corrosion control Corrosion Control

Thermox FXC2 contains synergistic corrosion inhibitors to protect metals commonly found in such systems. It has been tested in accordance with BS5117 and found to meet BS6580 and ASTM D1384 corrosion standards.

Thermox FXC2 also contains scale and biological inhibitors to help prevent fouling – thus promoting long operational life and high thermal efficiency.

Biodegradable Biodegradable

Thermox FXC2 mixtures are readily biodegradable (90% over ten days) and will not remain in the environment or bio-accumulate.

Quality Assured Quality Assured

All Hydratech products are manufactured in accordance with certified ISO9001-2008 procedures


As per BSRIA guide BG 29/2012 all pipe-work systems should be clean and free from biological contamination and debris prior to commissioning.

To minimise corrosion air ingress should be minimised. A pressurised system is best.

Determine the total system volume and add Thermox FXC2 to the system according to the minimum operating temperature required (see table, below). The minimum dose of Thermox FXC2 should not be less than 25% of the system volume and the maximum does not normally exceed 60%. We recommend the use of deionised, distilled or UltraPure™ water for this dilution. Avoid water containing high levels of calcium salts or Chlorides [Cl-].

Health & Safety: Please refer to the associated Safety Data Sheet - Available via Login or upon request.

Shelf Life: 3 years when stored in sealed containers out of direct sunlight.

Available in: 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 205 & 1000 litre containers and bulk tankers.

Thermox FXC2 can also be supplied as a Ready-To-Use solution.
