correct. concentrate means that to use it you have to dilute it
R132 can be either 1:1 or 1:2 coolant to water, depending on how much protection you need

Anti-boil properties are good though, in this Country it aint hard to get the water/coolant temperature up that high - and boiling coolant and/or water does not transfer heat very well.

If the cooling system is working as it should, most people living in the cities don't see the temps needed for either anti-boil or anti-freeze. That being said neither are a bad idea.
