LAKE FOREST, Ill. Prestone Products Corp. has introduced its new Prestone Command Heavy-Duty Antifreeze/Coolant line of products at Heavy Duty Aftermarket Week (HDAW) 2013, taking place this week in Las Vegas.
“Our new family of Prestone Command Heavy-Duty Antifreeze/Coolant products are the latest innovations that Prestone is offering to the North American heavy-duty vehicle market,” said Greg Noethlich, president of Prestone Products Corp. “Prestone Command takes the specific needs of the heavy-duty fleet operator into account and delivers ‘Anywhere. Anytime. Any Engine.’ protection that helps to prolong engine life. HDAW is the perfect venue for us to introduce this game-changing product to the heavy-duty vehicle market.”
The patented Prestone Command was developed as an advanced antifreeze/coolant technology designed to provide engine protection, no matter the weather conditions. It is available in two different formulations:
Extended Life provides 600,000-mile/12,000-hour CAT EC-1 protection for any diesel-powered, heavy-duty engine. This patented formula was designed to protect aluminum and all other engine metals against temperature extremes, rust, corrosion, scale and water-pump failure, and is compatible with any other heavy-duty antifreeze/coolant. A pre-diluted 50/50 formulation is available for top-off applications, according to Prestone.
Extended Service is SCA pre-charged and, according to Prestone, it provides advanced protection from freezing, overheating, cavitation erosion, corrosion, scale and foaming in any heavy-duty engine with need-release filter technology that is used in normal to severe duty cycles and extreme temperature conditions. A pre-diluted 50/50 antifreeze/coolant formulation and demineralized water dilution is available for top-off applications.
In addition to the new antifreeze/coolant products, the company also is launching its Prestone Command Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF), a liquid-reducing agent that has been developed for use in all diesel engines equipped with a Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) system.
