Test Results and Assessment:

The results of the tests conducted on this sample are consistent with the labeled claims.

Note: Although the back label on this product provides directions about its use and dilution for recommended protection, neither the front nor the back labels state that this product is “Concentrate” antifreeze. This underscores the importance for consumers to read the labels carefully when purchasing antifreeze. Many of the antifreezes on retail shelves are 50/50 prediluted products that are used as is, without the addition of water. Unlike 50/50 prediluted products, "Concentrate" antifreeze must be mixed with water to provide the desired level of protection.

Note: Although laboratory tests alone cannot be used to establish if coolant meets standards, they can be used to determine if it doesn't.
