Contrary to popular belief, silicates are in the coolant to protect components.why do they put the silicates in the antifreeze? What purpose do they serve, And why doesn't it tear up my car waterpump like it is supposed to tear up my wing waterpump?:?
I disagree with you. The new organic acid technology does not harm your cooling system. How do I know? I was curious after buying a gallon of Peak Global Life time 50/50 for my Gl1500 which is silicate free and organic acid technology, so I contacted the manufacturer and spoke with a chemist. He indeed said it is free of silicates, but does not contain a waxy ingredient like we may have been familiar with in GM Dex cool and is also a completely different technology then Dex-Cool. The Peak Global 50/50 meets Jaso specs and is safe for Honda or Japanese motorcycles. It is also amber in color. I would have to believe the chemist from the manufacturer.
