Purple Ice is a high performance, synthetic, radiator coolant additive for both gasoline and diesel engines. It is formulated to reduce the surface tension of the coolant, which improves heat transfer through the cooling system while providing additional protection against rust, corrosion and erosion.
Purple Ice prevents the formation of scale deposits in the radiator for optimum coolant flow and lubricates the seals of the water pump. It is ideal for use in straight water racing applications or in antifreeze / water mixtures.
Purple Ice is compatible with traditional ethylene glycol antifreeze (green) and GM Dex-Cool antifreeze coolants. Reduces Coolant Temperatures Extensive testing confirms Purple Ice reduces coolant temperatures better than comparable products while providing extra corrosion protection.
For example, the average operating temperature of a 350 c.i.d. V8 engine (equipped with 160 thermostat) when dyno-tested with different coolants are:
A. Standard mix of water and glycol (antifreeze) 228 F
B. 50 / 50 water / glycol mix with Purple Ice added 222 F
C. Straight water (no corrosion protection) 220 F
D. Water with Purple Ice added 200 F
Recommended Treat Rate
For use with antifreeze -- 1 oz. / quart of cooling system capacity
For straight water applications -- 1.5 oz. / quart of cooling system capacity
Reduces surface tension of a coolant allowing more heat to transfer outside the radiator resulting in more horsepower
Reduces hot spots in the engine and cylinder heads, reducing the possibility of engine failure
Helps prevent overheating, keeps the system clean and extends the life of the water pump
Safe to use with water-only or antifreeze/water blends
Note: Minimum of 20 percent antifreeze recommended in street driven vehicles.
