Cool Plus

Description

This is a concentrated organic acid, water-based treatment for automotive cooling systems.  It is a phosphate and silicate-free formulation containing a pH-buffered blend of additives known to reduce the corrosion of steel, cast  iron,  aluminium alloy, brass, copper and solder. 

It will not reverse pre-existing corrosion problems.  It is not an anti-freeze/anti-boil type coolant and should not be used in conflict with engine manufacturers' recommendations.

 Cool Plus exceed the performance requirements of the following standards:

ASTM D1384 "Corrosion Test for Engine Coolants in Glassware" using 20 ml per litre hard water.

ASTM D4340 "Corrosion of Cast Aluminium Alloys in Engine Coolants under Heat Rejecting Conditions" using 20ml per litre hard water.

Australian/New Zealand Standard 2108.1:1997  "Engine Coolants Type A and Type B for Engine Cooling Systems" using 20-30 ml per litre hard water.

Use

Mix Cool Plus at 40 - 50 mls per litre in distilled water. If required, top-up with diluted inhibitor to avoid a rundown in concentration.  Replace at 24 month / 60,000 km intervals.  May be replaced more frequently depending on engine and driving conditions, or engine manufacturer's requirements. To avoid possible incompatibility problems, do not mix with any other inhibitors or coolants.  

When the vehicle is cool, drain the cooling system (including the heater), as per vehicle owner's manual, thoroughly flush and rinse clean. Reconnect all hoses, drain plugs, etc. Fill with correct volume of coolant. Refer to the vehicle owner's handbook for the volume needed. Fill through top opening of cooling system. Check level after engine has reached operating temperature and allowed to cool again. Any spillage on paintwork should be flushed off with water.  Dispose of used material in accordance with local regulations.
