TORONTO, Ont. — Are you having a hard time keeping your OATs, NOATs and HOATs straight? Prestone has just published a four-page white paper on heavy-duty engine coolants, that describes key differences between the various coolants on the market.

“Antifreeze/coolant is the lifeblood of a heavy duty vehicle’s cooling system. It is also a jack-of-all-trades that performs many specific duties during vehicle operation. Therefore, it is imperative that the driver and/or fleet owner be aware of the type of coolant that is in the engine and how it must be maintained, which is becoming more and more important as additional coolant formulations and engine types are being developed,” Prestone outlines in the white paper.

The white paper provides definitions of commonly used terms and also highlights the performance advantages of the various types of coolant available for heavy-duty engines.
