what are some good brands to go with for a bike just wondering
You bet! Engine Ice Hi-Performance Coolant TM offers excellent alloy protection for Motorcycle engines against corrosion, overheating, & freezing. Engine Ice Hi-Performance Coolant TM is pre-mixed at a 1:1 ratio with de-ionized (DI) water and has a boiling point of 256oF and a freezing point of -26oF. Propylene glycol engine coolants will perform superbly under most operating conditions and will not affect factory warranty coverage.
What about protection against corrosion?
The Engine Ice Hi-Performance Coolant TM formulation has shown outstanding performance in testing that measures its ability to prevent corrosion within all cooling systems, including aluminum, copper, cast iron, steel, magnesium & solder. Engine Ice Hi-Performance Coolant TM has shown excellent performance in all of the ASTM D 5216 (Propylene Glycol Base Engine Coolant) tests. Also, Engine Ice Hi-Performance Coolant TM meets all the corrosion performance requirements of ASTM D 3306 & ASTM 4985 (the main specifications for premium ethylene glycol antifreeze).
Why is Engine Ice Hi-Performance Coolant TM pre-diluted?
Engine Ice Hi-Performance Coolant TM is pre-mixed with de-ionized water. The process of de-ionizing water eliminates all of the impurities that can do harm to your cooling system. Regardless if you are using tap, bottled, distilled, spring or R/O (reverse osmosis) waters, it can still contain minute particles of iron, magnesium, rust, lime and calcium. Many of these waters also contain chemicals, such as chlorine, fluorides and acids. Want proof? Take two different brands of distilled waters and perform your own taste test. They each taste different don't they? If water were water, why would they be different? It's because of the varying amounts of chemicals and minerals in these waters. These minerals and chemicals are what is the cause the scarring, scaling and mineral build-ups in your cooling system. Many also attribute these minerals and chemicals to water pump seal and gasket failures.
LOL, Its all good yo. :ninja:endo said:Cool...but I was just trying to make the point that just because it's propylene glycol, doesn't mean you don't have to mix it. Engine ice comes pre-mixed (as do others), but not everything will come as such.
