A radiator to put it in?

 

PS. Anti-freeze isn't just for the colder northern climes BTW.

The main purpose of this product in Thailand would be to prevent corrosion.

  In climates not exposed to freezing temps, its main purpose is to raise the boiling point of the water in a pressurized cooling system. This is best achieved by using a 50/50 blend of anti-freeze and water. It will also prevent the heater-core freezing up and cracking, in cars equipped with AC.

Engine coolant absorbs less heat than plain water , so a 25% EC / 75% water will give cooler running.

  That ratio will have a lower boiling point and will not be as efficient to prevent engine overheating in hotter climates, as Thailand.  The bottle in the OP's post is a premixed 50/50 blend sold by Ford. Other manufactures recommend similar products for their vehicles. A 50/50 blend provides the best overall performance for efficient engine cooling, while  raising the boiling point from 212F to 223F and even higher with a closed pressurized system. The heat generated during the fuel burning process migrates into the upper parts of the engine with most of the heat in the cylinder head(s). Using an incorrect coolant mix can cause it to percolate in the heads water passages creating voids that will overheat causing cracked heads, valve seats, seizing of moving parts and blown head-gaskets.

^ This is true , but we dont need to raise the boiling point much above 212F , we need to transfer more engine heat to the radiator in hot climates. Thats what Water Wetter does. Evans coolant also works well.

Fords design log. Fords specifications for what's needed.

Change the design and the specification alters to match the modification. Because you understand the new requirement.

Don't know of any manufacturer that publishes Design Requirement let alone their Compliance Specifications.
