How can I obtain Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) for coolant additives?
MSDS information is available from the coolant additive manufacturer or your filter manufacturer. Q: Are there environmental hazards to not treating a coolant system properly? A: There are no “environmental” hazards. There are definitely mechanical hazards related to incorrect coolant system maintenance procedures. (Water pump failures, wet sleeve cavitation erosion and pre-mature catastrophic engine failures.) Q: Why doesn’t a coolant filter come factory installed on some engines? A: Due to various engine designs, some engine and equipment manufacturers do not require coolant filtration. Coolant filtration can be added to these systems to prolong water life and/or aid with coolant maintenance. Q: Is regular tap water all right to use in coolant systems? A: Most tap water does not meet engine manufacturer’s specifications for use in coolant systems. Please refer to OEM guidelines and consider a coolant analysis program to determine suitability when in question. Reference FMC TSB 88-1R3
