What is GOLD DEF Diesel Exhaust Fluid?  
GOLD DEF Diesel Exhaust Fluid is a mixture of high purity synthetic urea and purified water for use in Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) in diesel engines. GOLD DEF Diesel Exhaust Fluid is nontoxic and nonhazardous. QC BLU DEF Diesel Exhaust Fluid reduces emissions of nitrogen oxides from diesel exhaust systems.
GOLD DEF Diesel Exhaust Fluid is injected into the exhaust stream to mix with exhaust gasses to form nitrogen and water which is safe to the environment.

  SCR is a leading technology that meets the 2010 EPA mandate to reduce levels of oxides of nitrogen (NOx) emitted from diesel engines. SCR systems use diesel exhaust fluid and a catalytic converter to  reduce NOx emissions making them safer for the environment. Diesel exhaust fluid is nontoxic. Diesel exhaust fluid is not hazardous and nonflammable. It is added to the urea tank on equipped diesel vehicles. Diesel exhaust fluid is injected into the exhaust stream to mix with exhaust gases. This forms nitrogen and water which is harmless to the environment.   

Diesel exhaust fluid must be present in the tank at all times.  A low DEF level triggers a series of visual and audible alarms to the driver. Diesel exhaust fluid is carried in a separate tank from the fuel tank. For light duty vehicles, Diesel exhaust fluid refills are typically required around the time of a recommended oil change. Diesel exhaust fluid replenishment for heavy duty vehicles will vary depending on the operating conditions, miles traveled, and other factors. Diesel exhaust fluid tanks are usually located in the spare tire area of passenger vehicles. Tractor trailers typically have a DEF tank next to the diesel fuel tank.

What is Selective Catalytic Reduction? (SCR)
Protecting the environment with low emission standards while simultaneously maximizing fuel efficiency and engine performance is a challenge for the diesel industry. Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) helps meet this challenge
SCR is the technology of reducing levels of oxides of nitrogen (NOx) emitted from diesel engines. SCR systems use diesel exhaust fluid and a catalytic converter to greatly reduce NOx emissions entering the environment.
SCR involves injecting diesel exhaust fluid through a special catalyst into the exhaust stream of a diesel engine. The diesel exhaust fluid sets initiates a chemical reaction that converts nitrogen oxides into nitrogen, water and tiny amounts of carbon dioxide (CO2), which are safe and naturally found in the environment.

SCR technology is cost effective and fuel efficient. All heavy duty diesel trucks produced after January 1, 2010 must meet the new EPA standards.  SCR can reduce NOx emissions up to 90 % and HC and CO emissions by 50-90 %, and PM emissions by 30-50 %.

How much diesel exhaust fluid will my vehicle use?
One gallon of GOLD DEF Diesel Exhaust Fluid will be sufficient for about 300 miles. A vehicle with a 20 gallon DEF tank can go up to 6,000 miles before the need to refill.
An engine will not be shut down or be unable to restart as a result of running out of diesel exhaust fluid. If the DEF tank runs out, engine horsepower will be affected and GOLD DEF should be added to the tank.

Can GOLD DEF Diesel Exhaust Fluid freeze?
GOLD DEF Diesel Exhaust Fluid will begin to crystallize and freeze at 11°F
Both components of the solution freeze at the same time preventing any possible dilution or concentration issues.
If GOLD DEF freezes, it will not prevent the vehicle from starting as it thaws quickly once the vehicle is started.

What is the shelf life of GOLD DEF Diesel Exhaust Fluid?
2 years. Storage between 86 F (30 deg C) and 40F (4 deg C) is recommended.

Is GOLD DEF hazardous?
NO. GOLD DEF Diesel Exhaust Fluid is not hazardous. It is non toxic and not dangerous.

What happens if I should spill GOLD DEF ?
QC BLUE DEF Diesel Exhaust Fluid cleans up easily with water. Since it can be mildly corrosive to metals such as aluminum, copper, and other alloys, if spilled on any engine parts it should be washed off with water.

What should be done if diesel exhaust fluid is ingested?
If diesel exhaust fluid is ingested seek medical attention immediately.

What if I get diesel exhaust fluid on my skin or in my eyes?
Diesel exhaust fluid is mildly irritating to the skin and eyes. If contact is made with skin or eyes the area should be flushed thoroughly with water.

In what container sizes can I purchase GOLD DEF Diesel Exhaust Fluid?
Chemical.net carries GOLD DEF Diesel Exhaust Fluid in 2.5 GAL. cubes, 5 GAL pails, 55 GAL drums, and 275 GAL totes. Chemical.net also specializes in packaging, so other sizes should be available upon request.
