Is pink coolant better?

Is pink coolant better?

If you have an aluminum radiator, the pink “super long life” coolant is likely the best choice. It doesn’t require the same number of flushes or changes to maintain its benefits, but the cost is a bit higher.

Whats the difference between red and pink coolant?

The pink coolant is an OAT (organic acid technology) that typically has a longer service life. The red coolant on the other hand is an IAT (inorganic acid technology) that is considered to be more “conventional” but still longer lasting than some other coolants on the market.

What antifreeze is pink in color?

The Colors of Coolant

HOAT (Hybrid OAT) Silicates & Organic Acids YELLOW
HOAT (Hybrid OAT, Phosphate-free) NAP Free TURQUOISE
P-HOAT (Phosphated HOAT) Phosphates & Organic Acids PINK
Si-OAT (Silicated HOAT) Silicates & Organic Acids PURPLE

Why is some antifreeze pink?

The color of the antifreeze does not indicate any difference in the properties of the coolant. It’s just that different companies use different colors, so consumers know which product they’re using just by looking at it.

Can I use pink coolant instead of blue?

Is It Ok To Mix Coolant Colors? Mixing antifreeze in two different colors or types is never a good idea. There are no dangerous reactions or explosions caused by mixing two formulas, but mixing them could create a sludgy chemical mixture that won’t be able to pass through your cooling system properly.

Can you mix pink antifreeze?

You can mix two different colors of the same kind of coolant without any problem whatsoever. But if you mix a significant amount of one type in with the other type, you’re weakening your corrosion inhibitors (it happened to my brother, and look at the condition he’s in now).

What is the difference between pink and blue antifreeze?

Can I use tap water to mix coolant?

The question comes up: Do I use regular tap water when mixing my coolant and water together? No, you should use distilled water or better yet, de-ionized water. The reason for this is that tap water has minerals that can deform deposits inside the radiator and the cooling system passages of your engine.
