Prista Antifreeze Long Life
Description and Application
PRISTA® ANTIFREEZE LONG LIFE is antifreeze concentrate based on ethylene glycol and an additive system developed with silicate-free organic (mono- and di-carboxylic) acids. The product is free from potentially harmful substances such as nitrites, amines, and phosphates, which makes it environmentally friendly.
PRISTA® ANTIFREEZE LONG LIFE can be used all-year-round for protection against freezing, overheating, and corrosion of the engines of passenger cars, trucks, buses, off-road vehicles, stationary and marine engines, etc. It is used only after dilution with distilled or soft water. Along with conventional combustion engines, the product is particularly suitable for high-tech engines where high-temperature corrosion protection for the aluminium heat transfer surfaces is vital.
For durable corrosion protection, it is recommended to use at least 33 % v/v of PRISTA® ANTIFREEZE LONG LIFE in distilled water. The typical mixing ratio is 1:1, offering protection against freezing at ambient temperatures down to minus 40 °C. Mixtures with more than 70 % v/v PRISTA® ANTIFREEZE LONG LIFE in water are not recommended.
Maximum freezing protection (down to minus 69 °C approximately) is achieved with 68 % v/v of PRISTA® ANTIFREEZE LONG LIFE in water.
PRISTA® ANTIFREEZE LONG LIFE products allow extended drain intervals thanks to the special organic additives used in their formulation with minimum depletion during service. The recommended drain intervals are as follows:
• Passenger cars - 250 000 km or 2 000 hours
• Heavy-duty trucks, buses, and other commercial vehicles – 650 000 km or 8 000 hours
• Stationary engines – 32 000 hours or 6 years
