Bendix High Performance Coolant is a pre-mixed Organic Acid Technology (OAT) coolant with demineralised water.
Without radiator coolant, an engine would overheat extremely fast, leading to mechanical breakdown and engine failure. While oil might be the life force of a car’s engine, coolant acts as the agent that helps to dissipate heat. The coolant is a mixture of ethylene glycol (antifreeze) and water that is stored in a car’s radiator. It prevents the water from freezing and boiling given the extreme temperatures it is exposed to. Considering the amount of heat energy generated by burning gasoline within an internal combustion engine, the engine’s cooling system is greatly relied upon to ensure the car functions properly. Additional features of the coolant include the prevention of rust and formation of an acidic solution that could harm the engine. Bendix says that it must use deionised, purified, demineralised or distilled water since these are free of minerals commonly found in tap water. The minerals could deposit in the radiator pumps and damage the setup.
A good rule of thumb for the coolant mix is 50/50, but more antifreeze in the mix increases the boiling point and decreases the freezing point. Generally, for the climate that we have in Malaysia, a 50/50 mix is more than enough for the conditions the engine faces.
Over time, normally around 3 or 5 years (or 60,000 and 80,000 kilometres respectively), the coolant expires and risks becoming acidic. If the solution in the radiator becomes acidic, it promotes rust and ion formation in the system that contributes to electrolysis and, in turn, corrodes engines and degrades gaskets. Check your coolant regularly to see if it needs to be flushed and replaced with a new one. For optimal performance, drain the cooling system and refill with Bendix High Performance Coolant.
Bendix High Performance Coolant is a pre-mixed Organic Acid Technology (OAT) coolant with demineralised water. While maintaining the cooling system in an ideal working temperature, this coolant provides ‘excellent’ corrosion protection and prevent blockage in the radiator. Just like every other Bendix range of products, Bendix says its High Performance Coolant is made from high purity ingredients that meet international standards including BS6580:2010, ASTM D3306, NB/SH/T 0521-2010 & GB 29743-2013. Bendix High Performance Coolant now comes in a 1-litre bottle pack.
