Universal 50/50 Premix Antifreeze/Coolant

Universal 50/50 Premix Antifreeze/Coolant is a superior quality ethylene glycol based engine coolant with a low silicate corrosion inhibitor package. This product protects coolant system metals, including heat-rejecting aluminum, against pitting caused by cavitation and corrosion. It provides protection against radiator freeze-up down to -37°C and boil over to 129°C (with a 100 kilopascal {15 psi} radiator cap in good condition). It is recommended for use in older model domestic and foreign cars and light duty trucks and will provide up to 80,000 km or 2 years service life when installed as initial fill, or after a complete flush and cleaning of a cooling system in reasonable condition. It is compatible with supplemental coolant additives (SCA) and coolant filters and thus can be used in heavy duty diesel coolant systems when pre-charged with SCA.

Universal 50/50 Premix engine coolant offers the following advantages:

  • Protects against winter freezing and summer boil over
  • Prevents pitting caused by cavitation and corrosion of brass, copper, solder, steel, cast iron and aluminum
  • Low silicate
  • Aluminum compatible
  • Premixed – DO NOT ADD WATER

Universal Antifreeze/Coolant meets the performance requirements of the following engine coolant specifications:

  • ASTM D-3306, D-4985
  • Chrysler MS7170
  • Ford ESE-M97B44-A
  • GM 1825M, 1899M
  • TMC RP 302B
