Having Trouble Finding Zerex Locally?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have seen some posts on here saying that Zerex Super Coolant was hard to come by. Well I looked around today as I was in need of some and all the major places (AutoZone, Advanced Auto) were out of stock. They could order it, but didn't have any available. So, I tried NAPA. Here's what I found:



When the guy punched Zerex Super Coolant into the computer, it listed this as an alternative. It's the same stuff and costs $4.79 a can.

Hope this helps!

I don't know about "same stuff". It is an additive for anti-freeze that is supposed to help control tempetures.....but I don't know if I would call it the same.

CRC makes many different types of chemicals for the automotive and industrial areas. I know I like their Brake Cleaner, works pretty well.......but I have never considered putting that additive into any of my cars.

There is a product called 40 Below that lots of auto enthusiasts swear by.

40 Below

Course, it's a little expensive...........


The trouble with taking something designed to do a certain thing and using for a different, yet similar purpose, is you never know how it will react. For instance, these additives are specifically designed to work in automotive systems, 7-20 psi system pressure, 200+ degree temps, 2-4 gallon capacities, with LOTS of metal contact. Obviously it is easy to guess that you won't see 40 degree temp drops in a computer system from this additive, but it's possible in a car.


The only thing you can do is try it.....and let everyone know the results

Here's the ingredients:

Water
Ethylene Glycol
Sodium Nitrate
Polyalkalene Glycol
Ethoxylated Castor Oil

That's it. Slightly different than Zerex:

But I noticed they don't list what the "corrosion inhibitors" are on the Super Coolant.
