Triple Seal

The Triple Seal Protection products by Prestone Products Corporation use a breakthrough stop-leak treatment that allows users to avoid paying thousands for engine repairs. With just one bottle of Triple Seal Protection, leaks are sealed from the inside of the affected area without blocking or corroding the cooling system.

The Triple Seal Protection line includes three products: Prestone Triple Seal Protection Engine Block Stop Leak, Prestone Triple Seal Protection Head Gasket Stop Leak and Prestone Triple Seal Protection Radiator Stop Leak.

Each product is designed for the unique heat and pressure of the specific leak location (engine block, head gasket or radiator). The product is delivered through three proprietary technologies that work together to repair the source of the leak. Effervescent beads flow straight to the source of the leak while a DuPont Kevlar resin forms a web that binds to the surrounding metal. Finally, the seal is secured by an acrylic polymer in the Radiator Stop Leak and an acrylic polymer and sodium silicate in the Engine Block Stop Leak and Head Gasket
Stop Leak that hardens the seals.

Both the Engine Block Stop Leak and Radiator Stop Leak products do not require a cooling system flush, while the head gasket stop leak requires a flush and fill one to two weeks after adding to the system. All three Triple Seal Protection products are safe to use with all colors of antifreeze.

Easier Brake Line Repair

EZ-Fit complete brake line kits are a new approach to brake line repair. Replacing every line on a vehicle with pre-cut and flared NiCopp brake lines speeds up repairs and reduces comebacks associated with improper flaring.
EZ-Fit uses AGS’s own EZ-Bend technology and corrosion proof NiCopp brake line material. The material bends easily allowing the professional service technician to route the line easily and install lines quickly. The kits come with all lines required to complete the job, already flared with both zinc and black-oxide coated hardware. Lines are labeled to correspond to an instruction manual. Depending on the application, the time it takes to do the job drops dramatically — up to 50 percent. Also, the distribution of EZ-Fit is much easier. When compared to pre-bent kits, EZ-Fit takes up over 94 percent less space in the supply chain.

EZ-Fit allows the seasoned brake line technician to make more money and gives newer technicians the chance to do the job right the first time.
