A History of Innovation
Kilfrost has been proudly family-owned and run for three generations. We remain as committed to innovation and the research and development of next generation products as our founder Joseph Halbert was when he developed a de-icing product inspired by the humble snowdrop.
From the development of world-first fluids for the protection of aircraft during the 1930’s, to the introduction of radiator anti-freeze used by Antarctic expeditions, and on to the first-ever use of a bio-derived glycol for an industry first eco fluid, we are the original pioneers and still lead the way today.
Safe and Superior
We continue to serve the aviation, rail and ground sectors through our winter products division, and have brought our unrivalled expertise into the heating, cooling, and ventilation sectors through our speciality fluids division.
We believe that industry shouldn’t have to compromise when it comes to heat transfer, which is why our skilled scientists created a first-of-its-kind fluid that solves the toxicity versus efficiency dilemma.
Now, thanks to the Kilfrost Low Viscosity range of heat transfer fluids, plant managers and installers no longer have to face the prospect of a heat transfer fluid that is either harmful or one that lacks performance.
With our fluids - you can have safety and superior performance.
A Global Presence
From its headquarters in northern England, Kilfrost supplies customers across the globe with winter products and advanced heat transfer fluids. The company’s incredible contribution to the industry has been recognised through numerous awards and accolades.
Kilfrost has always been at the forefront of cutting-edge technology and we honour our commitment to the environment by continually investing in research and bringing new eco-friendly products to market. We are proud to have been the first manufacturer of de/anti-icing fluids derived from sustainable, non-crude oil services, as well as the first non-toxic and highly efficient heat transfer fluid.
Trusted to Deliver
Kilfrost products are time-critical and delivery is required when weather conditions are very difficult. We have therefore built a comprehensive global logistics network encompassing all aspects of our business, from raw material supply through to final delivery to our customers.

Does arrival of winter have to paralyze the railways?
By Nordic Winter Solutions
April 6th, 2021
This year’s winter has proved that despite the investments in infrastructure and new rolling stock deliveries, infrastructure managers and operators still fail to cope with the difficulties associated with frost and numerous snowfalls. Rolling stock breakdowns and damage of the infrastructure cause train delays and cancellations.
Over the past years, Nordic engineers have developed more than 10 types of fluids together with strategic partner Kilfrost, original pioneers of de-icing and anti-icing solutions for the aviation sector.…
