Nulon Premium Long Life Pre-Mix Coolant – Green (LLTU) is a pre-diluted, ready to use 33.3% mix of Nulon Long Life Concentrated Coolant (LL) and 66.6% demineralised water. LLTU is formulated to be used in either of two ways:
All performance characteristics of Nulon Premium Long Life Pre-Mix Coolant – Green (LLTU) are exactly the same as for Nulon Long Life Concentrated Coolant (LL) when LL is mixed 1 part to 2 parts demineralised water.
Nulon Premium Long Life Pre-Mix Coolant – Green (LLTU) offers long-term cooling system protection for all motor vehicles. Nulon LLTU is based on Hybrid Additive Technology (HAT), which is a blend of organic and inorganic additives. The advantage of this product over conventional ethylene glycol type coolants is that the corrosion-inhibiting package has minimal depletion over an extended period of time. This means that maximum corrosion, anti-freeze/anti-boil protection are maintained until the fluid is replaced at the recommended 500,000 kilometres or 6 years (whichever comes first).
Nulon LLTU is to be used direct from the container and not diluted. Nulon LLTU protects for 6 years or 500,000km and is safe to use in all Commodores and Ford Falcons (including all V series Commodores and AU to FG/FG X Falcons).
Nulon LLTU is a low silicate formulation containing no nitrite, phosphate or amine. These chemicals are often used in conventional coolants and have limitations in performance, protection afforded, and vehicles to which they are suited. Nulon LLTU is guaranteed suitable for use in all vehicles where the manufacturer specifies anti-freeze/anti-boil coolant.
Nulon LLTU's formulation is approved by Ford Australia (ESE-M97B44-A specification) for initial fill in all Australian manufactured 6 and 8 cylinder vehicles. This specification is recommended by Ford for all in-warranty and post-warranty servicing of Ford vehicles where a glycol based coolant is required.
Nulon LLTU is recommended for the protection of cooling systems of all petrol engines and heavy and ligh-duty diesel engines operating in on-road, off-road or stationary conditions. LLTU provides maximum protection against cavitation erosion of wet cylinder liners in diesel engines. Refer to Nulon Fact Sheet No.108 for more information re diesel engine applications. (Note: for maximum protection, particularly in heavy-duty diesel applications, use Long Life Concentrated Coolant (LL) at 50% volume with clean soft or demineralised water).
LLTU is guaranteed to be suitable for the protection of cooling systems of all passenger vehicles where an anti-freeze/anti-boil coolant is specified. Nulon LLTU is also suitable for older vehicles where a broader cooling system operating temperature range is desired, or as a replacement for conventional corrosion inhibitors.
Note: Where a manufacturer specifies Organic Additive Technology (OAT) long life coolant, use either of Nulon's Red Long Life Coolants.

Nulon coolants do have a shelf life. Nulon Green Premium Long Life Coolant 100% Concentrate and Green Premium Long Life Pre-Mix Coolant have a shelf life of three years. Red Premium Long Life Coolant 100% Concentrate, Blue Premium Long Life Coolant 100% Concentrate, ONE 100% Concentrate Coolant and Heavy Duty Diesel Coolant 100% Concentrate have a shelf life of five years.
No, it is OK to use. Dye is added to coolant for identification purposes. The dye used to colour the coolant, green, red, etc can be affected by sunlight and age but this does not effect the performance of the coolant.
In 1977 an Australian Standard was created to help regulate the quality and performance of automotive coolants in the Australian passenger car and light commercial market. The current standard is known as AS2108-2004. Type A coolants are antifreeze/antiboil coolants with corrosion inhibitor that comply with the requirements of this standard. Type B coolants are coolants with corrosion inhibitors only that comply with the requirements of this standard.
It is best to use deminalised or deionised water. Uncontaminated rain water is OK but if collected from roofs and gutters it can contain impurites which may affect coolant performance. Metal roofing materials, concrete roof tiles and tanks, dirt and dust, all contaminate rain water. These conatanimants have an adverse effect on your vehicle cooling system.
Yes it is suitable but often more expensive than demineralised or deionised water.
Tap water quality can vary widely depending on your location. It is best to use demineralised or deionised water (Radiator & Cooling System Water), as tap water contains chemicals and minerals which can affect the performance of the coolant.
Most modern cars run their cooling systems at temperatures close to 100 degrees celsius. The bonus of using the antifreeze chemical (glycol) in coolant is that it also raises the boiling point. This gives protection against localised or hot spot boiling which can cause engine damage.
While not essential we recommend using Radiator Flush and Clean to remove insulating built-up sludge and residue before changing coolant in any cooling system.
Yes, coolants that contain ethylene glycol are poisonous. If ingested it affects the central nervous system and can cause death. Nulon adds a bittering agent to its coolants that contain ethylene glycol to prevent accidental ingestion from children or pets.

No, coolant colour alone does not specify the chemical technology of the coolant. It is important to note that when coolants of different technology are mixed the performance is compromised.
Ethylene glycol is a product used in automotive coolants to give the coolant a lower freezing point and higher boiling point. This allows vehicles to operate in sub zero climates and also allows engine coolants to reach higher temperatues before boiling.
We show you how to change your vehicle's coolant in this easy step by step video.
Nulon shows you how to change your vehicle's coolant in an easy step by step process.
All you need to do this is: car jack, jack stands or ramps, screwdriver, socket or spanner, drain plug washer, oil drain pan, some rags, container for the used coolant, Gloves and Nulon Long Life Coolant.
Internal combustion engine generate large amounts of heat. "Coolant" simpy means a liquid that provides temperature-transferring properties. In an automotive cooling system it is required to transfer heat from the engine whilst protecting the engine from corrosion (i.e. rust) and erosion which can be caused by fluid movement. Many automotive coolants also have added chemicals to extend the operating temperature range of the fluid. These are known as antifreeze/antiboil coolants.
Soft water, demineralised and deionised water are terms used to describe water which has low levels of dissolved mineral salts and ions of such metals as calcium, iron, or magnesium.
Using the correct type of coolant is essential. The Nulon Lube Guide can provide a guide to you coolant requirements. If directions of use are followed correctly Nulon coolants will protect the system from corrosion for the recommended life of the coolant.
These abbreviations refer to the technology used in the corrosion protection component of a coolant. IAT is Inorganic Additive Technology (often termed Conventional Technology), OAT is Organic Additive Technology, and HAT is Hybrid Additive Technology. To determine the best technology option and the preferred coolant for your car refer to the Nulon Lube Guide instore or online.
This depends on the type of coolant your car requires and the climate extremes that your vehicle will operate in. Consult the Nulon Lube Guide for the suitable coolant type, consult your vehicle handbook and follow directions of use on label to determine the required ratio.
The best answer to this question can be found in the Nulon Lube Guide, also available in store.
Contact your local waste facilities or environmental protection agency. Used coolants can contain environmentally unfriendly materials that have originated from the engine cooling system and need appropriate disposal. Do not drain used coolant onto the ground or into storm water.
