LAKE FOREST, Ill.
Prestone has debuted
its new Cor-Guard Inhibitor technology. This new Prestone antifreeze
formula provides advanced corrosion protection for a vehicle’s entire
cooling system, helping engines run longer.
According to Prestone, this improved antifreeze formula uses patented
Cor-Guard inhibitors to better protect areas in the cooling system most
vulnerable to corrosion. When used as directed, new Prestone protects
the water pump, heater core, radiator and gaskets from corrosion and
degradation, reducing the risk of engine failure and leading to longer
engine life, the company states.
“Our new proprietary formula improves Prestone’s already
industry-leading antifreeze, making it easy for all drivers on the road
today to better protect their engines,” said Tim Shipley, vice president
of sales and marketing for Prestone. “Prestone with Cor-Guard
inhibitors will be one of the most pivotal innovations the antifreeze
category has seen in nearly 20 years.”
Scientists at Prestone’s world-renowned Technology Center spent seven
years developing this new formula. Prestone tested all cooling system
components from metals to polymers to gaskets and completed more
than 1million miles of fleet testing, including aggressively driven
emergency vehicles, to ensure optimal protection. The enriched formula
is backed by multiple patents, does not void manufacturer warranties and
works in domestic, Asian and European model vehicles.
“Engine technology is rapidly becoming more advanced, and we recognize
Prestone must be a leader in coolant technology to continue serving our
customers’ best interests,” said Shipley.
Drivers can continue to use Prestone with all makes and models of cars
and light-duty trucks. Prestone works with any existing antifreeze,
regardless of color, and protects in extreme heat and cold, the company
Prestone with Cor-Guard inhibitors is available in Extended Life
Concentrate and 50/50 Ready-To-Use Prediluted Antifreeze/Coolant at
leading retailers in North America.
