BlueDEF Platinum offers new diesel exhaust fluid option

by Today's Trucking

Old World Industries is offering a new option for diesel exhaust fluid (DEF) in the form of BlueDEF Platinum.

Low-quality DEF can generate deposits that lead to back pressure, sacrificing fuel economy and engine power in the process, the company says.

BlueDEF Platinum looks to address this as a mixture of highly pure synthetic urea, deionized water, and a proprietary formula featuring what it calls Advanced System Shield Technology, to reduce deposits.

It’s manufactured under ISO 22241 guidelines and is registered with API, meeting or exceeding OEM specifications

The original BlueDEF formula was launched a decade ago.

  • I bought a 2.5 gallon def platinum.the only date I saw
    Was 08/06/ this the manufacturer date or use by date

  • So have we been sold inferior products for over a decade? Or should I say, have we been sold products that cause harm to our vehicles emission systems without our knowledge? Where do I send the bills for the DEF/Emissions related issues that I have been forced to pay at my dealership service departments?

    • Hi Brian, in regards to Your quest. Where
      Do I send my bills that the dealer charged me
      For def repairs; if you refer to the warranty
      Section in your owners manual( mine came
      As a separate manual) you will see that the
      Def system is part of your emissions
      System. The federal gov. Requires that all
      Components in that system be warranted
      For ten years.

      • he was saying if using expired def fluid which is sold in most places since it does not have a long shelf life also how it is stored matters so if he has been putting bad fluid in who would be responsible for the damage it has caused. If I took my truck to the dealer and they forget to add oil are you saying I would be responsible for the repair?

  • 2012 450 6.7. 200k on the clock. Regens became more frequent, bout every 100 miles. 1 2.5 gallon bottle platinum at 1/2 empty,, now regens up to every160miles or so. Cant wait to put 2 bottles platinum in. Already notice increase in mpg and acceleration; not much, but noticeable nonetheless.

  • I reviewed the MSDS (Material Safety Data Sheets) for both BlueDEF and BlueDEF Platinum. Both versions of this DEF contain 2 components in the same concentration: urea 32.5% and water 67.5%. There are no other ingredients listed, so there is no physical “advanced shield technology” additive in the Platinum version. The differences between the two products are price and marketing hype.
