How to seal a leaking pipe in a lorry’s cooling system

By their very nature lorries are heavy vehicles with robust cooling systems that can handle a lot of wear and tear but unanticipated breakdowns can occur that can potentially immobilise the vehicle. The knock on effects have an obvious negative impact on delivery services and vehicle downtime will also impact customer expectations and company credibility, should services not be provided in line with those expectations. The response to any leak in the vehicle’s cooling system has to be immediate and should preempt any downtime in delivery schedules. You are really looking for a sealant that will perform an immediate fix but with permanent application. The solution needs to be safe in terms of providing protection against corrosion, providing lubricant components in the formulation to protect the mechanics of the cooling system. It also needs to be water based and non polymer so as to prevent any clogging in the system’s pipework and pump. It is imperative to find a sealant product that adheres strictly to all these technical requirements so its proficiency and effectiveness is safeguarded. There are quite a few proprietary sealants on the market but it is essential to choose one that ticks all the requisite technical boxes, particularly its ability to seal the leak securely and permanently. Finding that ideal product might take a lot of searching and cross referencing against positive customer reviews – it is worth the effort to find the right solution!
