Glycerine additive (%) for bait freeze storage and sub-zero fishing temperatures

Glycerine (glycerol) is a suitable additive for freezer storing our Aqua-SPAWN ™, SEASPAWN ™ & CHUMGUM ™ products. It's also the basis for our SAC™ juice Glycerites.

Note: The freezing point using 50% glycerine to 50% water (50:50) is reached at -23.0 (°C)
Increasing this to a maximum of 66.7:33.3 glycerine/water ratio will eventually freeze at a staggering -46.5 (°C)
Conversely; 100% pure glycerine to 0% water (100:0.0) is less effective as an antifreeze having a higher freezing point at 17.0 (°C).

Pure glycerine has a freezing point of about 17 (°C) (62.6°F) as already stated. However, glycerine is seldom seen in a crystallized state because of its hygroscopic nature & tendency to supercool. The presence of small amounts of water within a glycerine-water solution also inhibits crystallization, which may depress its freezing point. Glycerine dissolved in water disrupts the hydrogen bonding between water molecules such that the mixture cannot form a stable crystal structure unless the temperature is significantly lowered.

Glycerine is a simple polyol compound. It is a colourless, odourless, high viscosity, water soluble liquid, an ideal natural sweetener, antifreeze & preservative - highly suitable as a preferred liquid bait additive. Glycerine can easily be enhanced with water-based flavour & colour attractants for all year round fishing.

Glycerine (glycerol) is a suitable additive for freezer storing our Aqua-SPAWN ™, SEASPAWN ™ & CHUMGUM ™ products. It's also the basis for our SAC™ juice Glycerites.
