Is it OK to treat the new coolant with RMI-25?
Yes! Remember, coolant has no cleaning action, and RMI-25 gives you that extra edge.
Can I use RMI-25 with water only?
Yes! Be sure you use mineral free water in your cooling system.
Does RMI-25 reduce the chance of water pump failure?
Yes! Over 60% of water pump failure is caused by seal leakage. Granulated rust and minerals circulate in your cooling system, acting as a lapping compound on your seal and shaft. RMI-25 turns these granules into a soft material.
I have a new vehicle. Is there any advantage to using RMI-25?
Yes! The use of RMI-25 in a new vehicle will provide greater protection against deposit buildup, will remove foundry rust and deposits, and promote greater heat transfer.
Does RMI-25 extend cooling system longevity?
Yes! There is nothing you can buy on the market today that does a better job of keeping the cooling system 100% efficient.
Does RMI-25 clean so well it will create leaks in the system?
Sometimes. This may happen if the cooling system has been seriously neglected and is on the edge of failure.
Is RMI-25 a good supplemental coolant additive (SCAs) for my diesel?
Yes! Below is an explanation of what SCA’s are all about.
What is a Supplemental Coolant Additive (SCA)?
SCA is required in all diesel engines with wet sleeves (press in cylinder liners). We recommend RMI-25 cooling system treatment as an SCA for all diesel and gasoline engine cooling systems, whether they have wet sleeve liners or not. SCA should be added to your anti-freeze solution based on diagnostic testing results.
Other SCA’s, which contain silicate, borate/nitrite or molybdate/nitrite/phosphate are designed to inhibit cavitation, erosion, corrosion, and scale formation. These additives can be applied in two ways; either bottled liquid or via a coolant filter treated with SCA. Testing for proper SCA content should be done on a regularly scheduled basis and the proper amount of SCA added as needed based on cooling system capacity.
Note: Other SCA’s do not contain a cleaner, and the rust & oxidation inhibitor will only work effectively in a clean system. The overdose of other SCA’s results in an overcharged system and can cause cooling system problems (green goo or solder bloom). This is the reason a test MUST BE DONE and the proper amount of SCA must be used.
RMI-25 does not use silicates, borates, nitrites, or molybdate/nitrite/phosphate chemistry. Therefore it also eliminates the many problems which may occur with products using those chemicals in their formulation.
RMI-25 is safe for all metals, plastics, hoses, and seals. It is compatible with all types of antifreeze/coolant solutions and metal-based stop leaks.
