Making Claims for Antifreeze/Coolant Blended with KIM 7000 Additive Packages
The specifications listed in this bulletin are based on antifreeze produced with KIM 7000 additive packages, virgin glycol and deionized water.
Antifreeze blenders must demonstrate compliance with ASTM or other specifications with their antifreeze/coolant, because the quality of the glycol and water used is as important as the additive package. Note that OEM’s have placed limits on the percentage of recycled glycol that can be used in factory fills, as have other purchasers of antifreeze. Glycol quality specifications have also been established. Obtain copies of the specifications that you wish to meet, thoroughly read them and conduct any required tests, prior to stating that the antifreeze produced meets the specifications.
Kimya can provide assistance locating the necessary specifications/standards. To confirm that your finished products meet the required industry specifications, Kimya recommends that you test your glycol and finished products at an accredited laboratory. Glycol should be tested for conformance with ASTM E1177 and finished products should be tested for the ASTM performance tests listed on this product bulletin.
KIM 7000 is more than just a universal additive package, which meets both automotive and heavy-duty specifications. It utilizes proprietary technology to provide superior performance quite economically and possesses several advantages associated with organic extended life additive packages, including lower dissolved solids levels and the absence of sometimes objectionable inhibitor components. Aside from being a non-silicate, non-phosphate, non-nitrate, non-amine one-part inhibitor package, KIM 7000 minimizes cold weather additive package crystallization problems since it does not begin to crystallize until the temperature falls below 32ºF. In addition, it contains additives to minimize hot surface scaling while also preventing heat transfer surface fouling due to minor oil leak age.
KIM 7000 additive package produces antifreeze that meets ASTM D 3306, the specification for light-duty and automotive service and ASTM D 4985, the specification for diesel and other heavy-duty applications. KIM 7000 can be used effectively with either ethylene or propylene glycol.

You should always store concentrated KIM 7000 additive package at a temperature of 60 ºF or higher. To make antifreeze concentrate, first charge the desired quantity of glycol to the blending tank. The glycol should first be charged to the blending vessel at a temperature of 50 ºF or higher, and at a pH of 7.0-9.5. Maintain this temperature throughout the blending procedure. Based on the quantity of glycol being treated, add 2.2% by volume of KIM 7000 while agitating or circulating glycol.
Continue to agitate for 30 minutes after all of the additive package has been transferred into the blending vessel.
When antifreeze concentrate is diluted to 50% by volume with water, the water of dilution must be of acceptable quality. Deionized water is the best to use, but other sources of water are acceptable as long as they contain no more than 350 ppm total hardness measured as calcium and magnesium compounds. Higher hardness levels may cause excessive inhibitor consumption, scale deposits and metal pitting.
