Organic Additive Coolants

What is ‘Organic Additive’ technology?

Organic Additive Technology (OAT) also known as ‘carboxylic technology’ (Recochem – Extended Life Engine Coolant) is based on fully neutralised acid corrosion inhibitors. These corrosion inhibitors last longer than traditional corrosion inhibitors, which is why OAT coolants are typically long life products. These coolants are free from silicates, phosphates, borates, nitrates, nitrites and amines.

Recochem ‘Organic Additive’ Performance Ratings

  • Standards Compliance: ALL Recochem coolant products meet and/ or exceed minimum industry standards.
  • Corrosion Protection:Rating Rating Rating
  • Service Life: Typically 5 Years and/.or 500,000 km and/ or 6,000 hours.

Why was ‘Organic Additive’ technology developed?

‘Organic Additive’ technology was developed to increase the service life of engine coolants in comparison with conventional coolants.

Typical Users

Marine, farming equipment, mining, on/ off road heavy duty vehicles, passenger vehicles, 4WD’s and light duty commercial vehicles (petrol and diesel).

Why use ‘Organic Additive’ technology?

  • Some OEM’s recommend the use of OAT coolants due to technical specification.
  • Does not require an SCA (supplemental coolant additive).
  • Longer service life than ‘Conventional Coolants’.
  • Advanced formulation resulting in better overall protection.
  • Lower ‘corrosion inhibitor’ depletion resulting in lower solids and sludge formation.

Key Features

  • Extended Service Life: 5 years and/ or 500,000 km and/ or 6,000 hours.
  • Does not attack seals, ‘O’ rings, hoses and elastomers.
  • No possibility of silicate drop-out or gel formation.
  • Phosphate free – a safer and cleaner alternative for our waterways (helps prevent build up of blue-green algae).
  • Compatible with other long life ‘Hybrid’ and ‘Organic Additive’ technologies (free of silicates, phosphates, borates, nitrates, nitrites and amines).
  • Incompatible with ‘Conventional Coolant’ technology.
  • Aluminium compatible.
  • Superior high temp corrosion, anti-freeze and anti-boil protection.

Organic Additive Coolants are available in both CONCENTRATE and READY TO USE formulations.
