Let’s talk extended life coolants with the experts. All fleet managers want a heavy-duty cooling system solution that extends service intervals and reduces service and maintenance costs.

Our Sourcing Team, who has over 25 years of experience in the transportation industry, works directly with the experts at PEAK Commercial & Industrial. We offer PEAK’s heavy-duty extended life coolants on our transportation-focused eProcurement Platform, CrownConnect. We asked PEAK to answer three key questions about extended life coolants.

1) Who is using extended life coolants and why?

Today, all leading heavy-duty OEMs, including Caterpillar® and Freightliner®, offer extended life coolant as a factory fill coolant. Extended life coolants offer the lowest cost of ownership through longer coolant life, longer coolant change intervals, and the elimination of SCAs and chemically charged filters

2) Why are trucks being factory filled with extended life coolant?

As engine and truck builders extend overall service intervals, factory fill products must be able to reach the extended service goals. Most truck manufacturers are filling new engines with extended life coolants to offer their customers the highest coolant performance, extended coolant service intervals and reduced overall maintenance costs.

3) What is FINAL CHARGE® GLOBAL Coolant/Antifreeze?
