FIRST CHOICE, RIGHT CHOICE, EVERYTIME.
Nulon’s Heavy Duty Diesel Coolant is specifically formulated to meet the modern technology requirements of all diesel passenger cars, SUV, 4x4, Light Commercial and Heavy Duty diesel vehicles. Guaranteed to protect for 8 Years or 1.2 million kilometres or 12,000 hours.
DIRECTIONS AS COMPLETE FILL: Refer to the owner’s manual for cooling system capacity. We recommend using a Nulon Radiator/Cooling System Flush product prior to filling the cooling system with this product. This will remove any harmful oil and scale residue.
WARNING: Never mix coolants from different manufacturers. DO NOT mix Nulon HD Diesel Coolant with green, red or blue coolant.

SAFETY DIRECTION: Harmful if swallowed. DO NOT SWALLOW. Keep out of reach of children. Not to be used as a food container. If spilt on paintwork, wash off immediately with water. To protect the environment, dispose of used coolant in a safe manner or as advised by the Environmental Protection Agency.
FIRST AID: If poisoning occurs contact a doctor or the Poisons Information Centre in Australia 131 126 or New Zealand 0800 764 766. If swallowed, do NOT induce vomiting. If in eyes, hold eyelids apart and flush the eye continuously with running water. If skin contact occurs, flush with running water.

Tap water quality can vary widley depending on your location. It is best to use deminalised or deionised water, as tap water contains chemicals and minerals which can effect 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.
Nulon coolants do have a shelf life. Nulon coolants that are green in colour have a shelf life of three years. Nulon coolants that are red in colour have a shelf life of five years.
Yes it is suitable but often more expensive than demineralised or deionised water.
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.
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.
Yes, coolants that contain ethylene glycol are poisonous. If ingested if 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.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
