Purple Ice is a high performance, synthetic, radiator coolant additive. It reduces engine heat by reducing the surface tension of the radiator fluids for improved heat transfer. Purple Ice fosters optimum coolant flow by helping to prevent formation of scale deposits in the radiator. It also lubricates the water pump seals. Purple Ice should always be used in conjunction with antifreeze in regions where freezing temperatures occur. Purple Ice is recommended for any water/glycol pressurized cooling system, including those using the traditional green silicate based glycols or the newer OAT or HOAT based glycols.
Royal Purple's Purple Ice is a high performance radiator conditioner. Its advanced 2-in-1 corrosion inhibitor and wetting agent provides year-round defense against corrosion. Purple Ice also reduces the surface tension of the radiator coolant to help reduce engine temperatures.
Reduces Coolant Temperatures
Extensive testing confirms Purple Ice reduces coolant temperatures better than comparable products while providing extra corrosion protection.
- Up to 22°F Reduction of Coolant Temperature--Reduces surface tension of a coolant allowing more heat to transfer outside the radiator resulting in more horsepower
- Maximum Protection--Reduces hot spots in the engine and cylinder heads, reducing the possibility of engine failure
- Cleans and Extends Equipment Life--Helps prevent overheating, keeps the system clean and extends the life of the water pump
- Superior Corrosion Protection--Enhanced aluminum protection that combats corrosion, electrolysis and erosion
- Compatible--Provides complete protection in straight water or coolant/anti-freeze mixes and safe for track use
Directions: Shake Well Before Using
Make sure cooling system works properly and is free of blockage and corrosion. Bottled, filtered drinking water is recommended. Distilled water not recommended, unless mixed with 50% antifreeze.
Use one (1) oz per quart of coolant with 50/50 mix or two (2) oz per quart of coolant with straight water. Replace annually or every 30,000 miles, whichever comes first.
IMPORTANT NOTES: Purple Ice does NOT provide freeze protection. Follow manufacturer recommendations when antifreeze is required. Royal Purple recommends that you drain and flush your system if you’ve used another brand of coolant additive. Purple Ice will NOT correct any pre-existing mechanical deficiencies of a cooling system.
Distilled water should not be used in straight water-cooling systems with aluminum radiators. Filtered drinking water or tap water is recommended for such cooling systems.
Is Purple Ice compatible with other cooling system additives?
Purple Ice should not be used with other heat-transfer or cooling enhancing products or “water wetters”. If such a product has been used in the cooling system, the system should be drained and flushed before using Purple Ice.
Purple Ice is compatible with cooling system additives intended to stop or slow leaks. Please note that such stop-leak products often typically put a coating on the interior surfaces of the cooling system, so the effects of Purple Ice may be diminished.
Is Purple Ice compatible with anti-freeze in my car?
Purple Ice is compatible with all current OEM/factory and major brand automotive anti-freeze. This includes traditional green ethylene glycols, as well as OAT/HOAT antifreezes (e.g. DexCool; Ford and Chrysler orange, gold, pink; European and Japanese OEM red, pink, etc.).
What water/anti-freeze concentration is recommended when using Purple Ice?
Purple Ice may be added to any anti-freeze/water mix; however, testing has shown higher water concentrations yield greater cooling benefits. While Purple Ice does contain corrosion inhibitors as well as lubricants to compensate for a lower anti-freeze/water concentration, Royal Purple recommends a minimum of 20 percent antifreeze concentration be used in street driven vehicles because Purple Ice has no effect on the boiling and/or freezing point of water.
How much Purple Ice do I need to add to my cooling system?
When using Purple Ice with an antifreeze/water mix, Royal Purple recommends adding 1 ounce of Purple Ice per quart of cooling system capacity. For straight water (racing) applications, Royal Purple recommends adding 2 ounces of Purple Ice per quart of cooling system capacity.
How often should I add Purple Ice to my radiator?
When used with antifreeze, Purple Ice should be added once a year or every 30,000 miles, whichever comes first, in order to maintain proper performance. When using Purple Ice in a cooling system running straight water, Purple Ice should be added once a year or every 15,000 miles, whichever comes first.
Will adding too much Purple Ice harm my cooling system?
No. A higher concentration of Purple Ice than recommended won’t offer any additional cooling benefit nor will it have any adverse effects on the engine or cooling system.
Can Purple Ice be used in diesel engines?
Yes. Purple Ice may be used in diesel engines for improved heat transfer as well as reduced cavitation.

Science tells us that this product will reduce localized hot spots via reduction of nucleate boiling (localized steam production). Usually occurring in the cylinder heads, this means lower head temps, less detonation, and a healthier engine.
I used this in my 2013 Ford Explorer 2.0T Eco boost and my 1999 Porsche 911 Carrera-2 3.4. When monitoring coolant temp levels via an OBD II reader/ data logger, purple ice reduced overall coolant temp levels by 6-10 degrees Fahrenheit in my explorer and 4-5 degrees Celsius in my Porsche over the same driving loop, with the same ambient temps.
Both engines run more aggressive ignition timing (also verified by OBD II reader) as well.
Also, I don't care what the bottle says, use only DISTILLED water. No minerals. No nothing, but water.
I'm very pleased. Ignore all of the people staring at their buffered coolant temp gauges; they don't even know what they don't know.
You will see reviews from people that say it didn't drop their temps, or that it caused water pump failure in their 7 year old Chrysler. It reduces the load on cooling system component by making the system more efficient. Your vehicle's thermostat will dictate the operating temp of the vehicle, the additive only helps dissipate heat from the cooling system helping your pump and thermostat by reducing it's run time.
I used it in my 2002 Toyota Tundra until I sold it at 180k and had fanatastic results. I started running it at 81k miles, and towed 8500 pounds 5 days a week with a 4.7L V8. Never replaced any cooling components, and never changed the radiator fluid (I tried to have them change it, but the fluid didn't break down over at 100k according to my mechanics).
I ran the bike for up to 15 minutes several times while doing other maintenance and noted the max. temps. Then I drained to coolant flushed the bike's cooling system with Royal Purple Royal Flush. While running the flush and 3 subsequent rinse for 15 min. each, I noted the temps again.
Then after filling with coolant and the max amount of Purple Ice, I ran the bike again (in preparation for changing the oil) for 15 min. This time the max temp was lower than when running water alone during the rinses. That was a huge surprise as the ambient temperature was even higher as it was late afternoon by then. You would also expect water alone to be a better coolant (but does not have pump lube, freeze protection or anti-corrosion additives).
On rides since then, the coolant temps have been lower than they were when riding under very similar conditions. I'm convinced that Purple Ice does work!

This product helps the water inside your cooling system shed heat faster. This means once the therm opens and releases the coolant water mix to the radiator it takes less time for it to cool. So in theory the coolant water mix will be cooler once it enters the engine again.
Remember this, if coolant won't freeze that mean it retained heat, or acts as an insulator. If you live in an area that does not freeze then the more water the better. Still use a minimal amount of coolant as a lubricant and anti-corrosion. You can use straight water and a bottle of purple ice and you are covered.
Hope this helps.
