For many years, there was only one type of coolant available on the market – conventional green. But thanks to improvements in antifreeze technology, you can now protect your engine with coolant that’s specially engineered for high-performance, exhaust gas recirculating (EGR) diesels.

Approved for use in all heavy-duty engines, Volvo Extended Life Coolant (XLC) protects for up to 1 million miles without the need for supplemental cooling additives (SCAs) or extenders. That’s 750,000 miles longer than traditional green coolant. Plus, its nitrite-free, non-silicate formula guards against damaging residue that can plug filters, coat heat exchangers and cause scale to form on cylinder liners.

Today’s engines run cleaner and operate at higher temperatures than ever before. This, in turn, has created new demands for cooling system fluids. Volvo XLC meets those challenges by offering:

  • Faster coolant flow rates to prevent engine overheating
  • Improved heat transfer capabilities compared to silicate-containing coolants
  • Superior protection of wet sleeve cylinder liners to protect against pitting
  • Advanced carboxylate organic acid technology (OAT) to safeguard against long-term corrosion of aluminum, brass, cast iron, steel, solder and copper alloy components 

But that’s not all. Because Volvo XLC is suitable for gasoline, diesel and natural gas-powered heavy-duty and industrial engines, it’s the best choice for a mixed-fleet operation. Volvo XLC is also compatible with other coolants, making it an excellent top-off coolant during emergency situations. And because it offers extended protection for up to 1 million miles or 72 months, using Volvo XLC will simplify your coolant maintenance schedule – and lower your overall cost of ownership – by extending drain intervals and improving hardware service life.

Volvo XLC is one of two factory-fill coolant options available for new Volvo trucks. For heavy-haul applications, we also offer Volvo Heavy-Duty (HD) Coolant, which protects for up to 300,000 miles or 24 months.

Volvo XLC and HD coolants are formulated, tested and approved by Volvo engineers for Volvo equipment, and they’re only available from your local Volvo dealer. So stop by today to stock up.
