Air Brake Anti-freeze

PRODUCT INFORMATION

PRODUCT: AIR BRAKE ANTI-FREEZE

PART NO.: M2832, M2834, M2840, M2849.

FUNCTION AND APPLICATION: An anti-freeze designed to prevent freezing of water, and corrosion to metals in
lines of heavy duty air brake systems.

OUTSTANDING PROPERTIES: Contains effective corrosion inhibitors and conditioners to protect metals in air
brake systems. Also contains a rubber lubricant to keep seals and diaphragm soft and pliable, as alcohol tends to
dry out rubber and leather. Only prime methanol is used to guarantee quality and avoids corrosive by-products
found in some recycled solvents used by competitive brands. Strict quality control in manufacturing, blending and
filling assures the finest product and performance.

USE DIRECTIONS: 1. Add to "alcohol evaporation reservoir" until two-thirds full. Air bubbles will become noticeable
when compressor starts to compress air. 2. Make certain all connections are tight and in good condition. Filler cap
must be well secured. 3. Air brake anti-freeze may also be added directly to the airline hose or air supply tank on
equipment, which does not have an alcohol evaporation reservoir.

PRODUCT LIMITATIONS: Avoid contact with painted surfaces.

PRECAUTIONS: DANGER. POISON. Contains METHANOL. Cannot be made nonpoisonous. Harmful or fatal if
swallowed! Eye and skin irritant. Vapors harmful. Use only in well-ventilated areas. In case of ingestion drink plenty
of water or milk. Induce vomiting. Seek medical attention immediately. In case of eye contact, flush thoroughly with
water for 15 minutes while lifting eyelids. Consult a physician if adverse effects persist. For skin contact, wash
thoroughly with soap and water. Remove contaminated clothing and launder before re-use. If inhaled, move to
fresh air immediately. If breathing is difficult, administer oxygen; if breathing has stopped, apply artificial
respiration. Keep warm and summon medical assistance.

STORAGE & HANDLING: Store in cool place below 50°C away from oxidizing agents, acids, ignition sources and
open flame. Wearing contact lenses while working with this product is inadvisable. Keep away from children and
animals.

DISPOSAL: Safeguard our environment. Dispose of container, residue, and excess product in accordance with all
federal, provincial and local laws and regulations.

PACKAGING: M2832 - 1 litre plastic bottle with C/R cap, packed 12 per case.
M2834 - 4 litre plastic jug, packed 4 per case. M2840 20 litre metal pail. M2849 - 205 litre

Re: Air Brake Anti-freeze

CHAMPION AIR BRAKE ANTI-FREEZE is recommended for use in air brake lines to prevent line
freezeups, and to absorb moisture in the system. It protects and keeps air brake systems clean.
CHAMPION AIR BRAKE ANTI-FREEZE is not harmful to hoses or seals, and protects the system
from rust and corrosion when used regularly in both the winter and the summer.

Re: Air Brake Anti-freeze

TECHNICAL INFORMATION
There are two types of AIR BRAKE ANTI-FREEZE
TYPE 1 - is based upon Methanol. It is the most effective at lowering the freezing point but has the negative effects of drying.
TYPE 2 - is based upon Isopropyl Alcohol IPA. It does not cause drying but it is less effective at reducing freezing and is expensive.

Re: Air Brake Anti-freeze

Directions:


Power Service Air Brake System Antifreeze is formulated to be introduced into an air brake system through an alcohol evaporator or alcohol injector. These devices properly atomize and regulate the amount of antifreeze in the system, which minimizes the potential for air system malfunction.

Pour contents into alcohol evaporator until jar is approximately two-thirds full. When compressor is in operation, bubbles should be seen passing through the Air Brake System Antifreeze. Check all connections. Do not pour the Air Brake System Antifreeze into trailer or dolly gladhands.

Re: Air Brake Anti-freeze

BEST way to use this is with an Alcohol Evaporator

that is placed inline with the filter on your air compressor.
