Bar's: Get ready for stop leak, head gasket repairs

Thursday, December 1, 2011 - 01:00
Winter is hard on vehicle cooling systems. The colder it gets, the more the cooling system is taxed to keep the engine at a constant operating temperature. As a result, many vehicles develop a variety of cooling system and head gasket leaks when the weather turns extremely cold.

“In general, our customers see a spike in sales of all Bar’s Leaks® cooling system stop leaks and head gasket repair products when the first big cold front moves across the United States,” says Clay Parks, vice president of strategic development for Bar’s Products. “The peak time for our customers to sell premium head gasket repair products like Bar’s Leaks Professional Carbon Fiber Block Seal Head Gasket & Cooling Sealant are the cold winter months of January and February. That’s why we encourage them to stock up to meet this seasonal demand.”

Bar’s Leaks products have protected and repaired vehicle cooling systems around the world since the original Bar’s Leaks Radiator Stop Leak debuted in 1947. Today Bar’s Products offers a full line of Bar’s Leaks brand cooling system stop leaks, maintenance products and chemical repairs. Bar’s Leaks Professional Carbon Fiber Block Seal Head Gasket & Cooling Sealant (p/n HG1) is one of the company’s newest premium products.

Developed for professional technicians but available to do-it-yourselfers as well, Bar’s Leaks Head Gasket & Cooling Sealant is the strongest formula available to permanently seal any coolant leak in plastic, cast iron, copper, and aluminum radiators, heater cores, freeze plugs, gaskets, intake manifolds, cylinder heads and engine blocks. It repairs blown head and intake gasket leaks, seals cracked cylinder heads and blocks, stops heater core and radiator leaks, fixes leaking freeze and core plugs, and stops overheating in any water-cooled car, truck, van or SUV.

Unlike other products, Bar’s Leaks Head Gasket & Cooling Sealant is antifreeze-compatible, so there’s no need to flush the cooling system before using it. It also doesn’t need to be removed at the end of the repair, which means that Bar’s Leaks Head Gasket & Cooling Sealant stays in the vehicle to protect the cooling system against future leaks long after the initial repair.

The exclusive Bar’s Leaks formula combines liquid glass (sodium silicate) with aramid and refractory fibers: the same super-strong, heat-resistant materials used in bulletproof vests and fireproof clothing. The formula is further reinforced with carbon fiber to bridge larger leaks and create a truly permanent seal that is stronger than the original head gasket itself. Bar’s Leaks Head Gasket & Cooling Sealant also features the proprietary wetting agent Xtreme Cool®. Xtreme Cool reduces the surface tension of coolant, increasing its wetting ability, while improving heat transfer and reducing coolant temperature.

Bar’s Leaks Head Gasket & Cooling Sealant is compatible with all types of antifreeze, including conventional green or blue (silicate-based) and extended life red/orange or yellow (OAT/HOAT).

Bar’s Leaks Professional Carbon Fiber Block Seal Head Gasket & Cooling Sealant is available to distribution in case packs of four. Like all Bar’s Leaks products, it is made in the U.S.A. The label includes directions in both English and Spanish.
