With superior protection
Prestone came to the market in 1927 with a solution to keeping engines at an optimal operating temperature, Ethylene Glycol, which was a non-flammable solution compared to the likes of alcohol which was used most commonly at the time.
Filpro Automotive says that unlike other alternatives, it did not boil away and kept engines from freezing in winter conditions, serving its purpose of keeping drivers on the road.
In 1930, Prestone began making the first inhibitor powerful enough to protect cooling systems from rust formation, which gave it a leading edge within its product range.
Now 90 years on, its antifreeze/coolant, with patented Cor-Guard inhibitors, is formulated to prevent corrosion; to help cooling systems run more efficiently; and extend engine life.
Prestone has reportedly continuously established long standing relationships with Original Equipment vehicle manufacturers over its 90-year history.
Filpro says that in 1962, “Big Three” automakers tuned in Prestone and installed ethylene glycol antifreeze solution in all new cars, making it a standard year-round performance fluid. Today, it says Prestone’s Original Equipment formulation is fitted at factories globally as first fill by leading manufacturers.
Prestone can reportedly be used in every passenger and light commercial vehicle on the market; as it is compatible and mixes safely with any coolant already in the system, without changing the colour or effectiveness of the existing coolant.
