Film Highlights Kilfrost’s Proud Pedigree and Ushers in New Era

The original pioneers of safety critical aviation fluids have revealed the exciting future for their business in a new film.

Launched today, the short film outlines how Kilfrost is renowned in aviation for its aircraft de- and anti-icing products and highlights how its new range of heat transfer fluids will bring very real commercial benefits to many other industries.

The film is produced by award-winning director and photographer Topher McGrillis and was shot at the company’s Haltwhistle headquarters in Northumberland.

Kilfrost Chief Executive, Gary Lydiate, who is interviewed in the film, says he is proud to have led the innovative and agile business for 11 years. He said the new ALV range of fluids builds on that pedigree and represents a bright future for his company.

He added: “Kilfrost is well known across the globe for what we do in the aviation industry, and that’s important to us, but we now face new and exciting times with the ALV range.

“This film rightly heralds our proud heritage and world class expertise, but also ushers in a new era for Kilfrost and signals how the new fluids represent a step change for many industries when it comes to heat transfer.”

The film features interviews with key staff and boasts dynamic aerial camerawork through the use of drones.

“Topher is a talented videographer,” Gary said, “and we are delighted with the end result, which neatly balances an acknowledgement of our solid foundations with a whetting of the appetite for what’s to come.”

Kilfrost’s team of expert chemists developed the new range of fluids to perfectly suit diverse industry sectors. Among the range is ALV Plus, which for the first time ever offers a viable alternative to monoethylene glycol (MEG) and monopropylene glycol (MPG), is accredited as safe for incidental contact with food and offers absolutely premium performance.
