Fleet maintenance: Premium synthetic lubricant and performance chemical manufacturer, Royal Purple, announced the introduction of its reformulated cooling system optimizer and conditioner, Purple Ice®. The new formulation is cited to be the most advanced product of its kind, reducing engine coolant temperatures by as much as 25 degrees Fahrenheit and providing unmatched protection against harmful build-up and corrosion in cooling systems.
Towing and day-to-day driving can put an increased strain on a vehicle’s cooling system a vital, yet often neglected system in a vehicle that is prone to overheating. As a wetting agent, Purple Ice helps lower engine coolant temperatures by reducing the surface tension of the coolant. This allows a better interface between the engine’s coolant and hot metal components, which enables the coolant to better pull heat away from the engine, helping prevent overheating as well as the formation of damaging engine hot spots.
Purple Ice outperformed all competitive products compared in American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) certified tests for coolant system corrosion, anti-foam and de-foaming performance, and temperature reduction. The new proprietary formulation utilizes 100 percent organic acid technology (OAT), which helps form highly-resilient endogenous surface films on sensitive aluminum, copper and iron alloy surfaces, while also ensuring it won’t harm sensitive rubber seals and hoses.
Unlike other similar products, Purple Ice is 100 percent water soluble and leaves behind no film or build-up. Purple Ice is compatible with all OEM and stock replacement coolants, including extended-life antifreezes, and can also be used with straight water for maximum cooling benefit.
