Universal 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 exceptional cooling in summer and excellent protection against freezing in the winter. 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 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
- Available as a 50/50 premix
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
Never use 100% coolant in concentrated form. A 50% dilution (i.e. when mixed with an equal volume of high quality soft, de-ionized or distilled water) is generally recommended for the best balance of protection against freezing, corrosion and summer boil over. For increased freeze protection in extremely cold areas, a 60% volume concentration can be used. Concentrations of greater than 70% by volume are not recommended.
