Evans Cooling Systems has finally finished its work in developing an ASTM specification for waterless coolants.
The American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) is an international standards organization that develops and publishes voluntary consensus technical standards for a wide range of materials, products, systems, and services. For the past six years, the ASTM subcommittee for non-aqueous coolants (D 15.22) has worked tirelessly to develop ASTM test methods and a specification for non-aqueous coolants. Although non-aqueous coolants do conform to many of the current ASTM International standards for engine coolants, there was a need for standards that are specifically focused on non-aqueous products. The new standards developed by D15.22 will be useful in protecting the consumer from unscrupulous companies looking to pass off products as a waterless coolant. In addition, these new standards would provide assurance to end users and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) that the product conforms to the highest international standards for quality and performance.
