Prestone Command introducing first-of-its-kind Radiator Flush

Lake Forest, IL, January 16, 2017 – Prestone Products Corporation, the number one branded consumer choice for Antifreeze/Coolant in North America, is excited to begin its 90th Anniversary at Heavy Duty Aftermarket Week where it will introduce both new and enhanced products, and have experts on hand to lead discussion on industry trends.

Visitors will be able to speak with Prestone experts including Dr. Peter M. Woyciesjes Worldwide RD&E Director, Coolants, to learn about:

  • New Product: Prestone Command Heavy Duty 2 in 1 Flush & Degreaser
  • Enhanced Product Line: Prestone Windshield Washer Fluids, now available in drums
  • Demo Unit: Showcasing the effectiveness of Prestone Water Repellent
  • Industry Trends: including the shift from NOAT to OAT technologies, and the ramifications to fleets.

“We’re excited to return to HDAW 2017 and showcase our new products, technology and industry insights,” said Steven Clancy, President of Prestone Products Corporation. “As we celebrate our 90th Anniversary, this starts our year on a high note from which we’ll continue to build.”

The Prestone team is especially excited to demonstrate the effectiveness of its Windshield Washer fluids at the show, and launch a new patent-pending radiator flush that will enter the market as the first of it’s kind.

“Our Heavy Duty 2 in 1 Flush & Degreaser has been engineered with new technology including an Oil Encapsulation System that strips grease and oil from the surface and Acid Cleaner that dissolves corrosion and scale without damaging metals,” said Thomas Kalagher, Performance Chemical Product Manager. “What previously took two products and multiple flush procedures can now be completed in one easy process resulting in lower maintenance costs and increased uptime.”

Regarding industry trends, the Prestone Command team will share insights related to some HD OEM manufacturers moving from a NOAT to a Nitrite Free (NF) OAT technology and the implications to fleets, as well as their view of the ideal coolant of the not-so-distant future.

“As an industry leader, our goal is to develop coolants that protect anywhere, anytime and any engine,” said John Tannone, Engineering Manager, who will also be on hand at the show. “We have a strong schedule lined up for HDAW 2017 and look forward to meeting with many of our industry partners.”
