Standard Specification for 1,3 Propanediol (PDO) Base Engine Coolant for Automobile and Light-Duty Service
|Publication Date:||1 April 2020|
|ICS Code (Refrigerants and antifreezes):||71.100.45|
This specification covers the requirements for 1,3 propanediol base engine coolants used in automobiles or other light-duty service cooling systems. When concentrates are used at 40 % to 70 % concentration by volume in water, or when prediluted glycol base engine coolants (50 volume % minimum) are used without further dilution, they will function effectively to provide protection against freezing, boiling, and corrosion.
NOTE 1-This specification is based on the knowledge of the performance of engine coolants prepared from new or virgin ingredients.
NOTE 2-This specification applies to automobiles and light-duty service. A specification for heavy-duty engine service is under development.
