Bar’s Leaks has reformulated its popular Liquid Copper Block Seal Intake and Radiator Stop Leak to make it the only one-step copper block seal on the market. Simply pour it into the radiator, idle the engine for five minutes, cool, top off with coolant and go. Other products require a complete system flush, plus a number of additional steps, with an average six to 10 hour timeline for completion. Customers using other products also have to add new coolant, which adds to the cost of the repair.
“New Bar’s Leaks Liquid Copper Block Seal is a fast, easy, cost-effective solution to permanently seal larger leaks in gaskets, radiators, heater cores, intake manifolds, blocks, heads and freeze plugs. It retails for around $8.99 and takes just a few minutes to use,” says Clay Parks, vice president of development for Bar’s Products. “Plus, it is the only stop leak on the market specifically designed to repair intake manifold leaks. These are serious leaks that are becoming more frequent and are expensive to fix. For customers who can’t afford a mechanical repair, Bar’s Leaks Liquid Copper is the only answer.”
Liquid Copper (p/n 1109) uses an advanced antifreeze-compatible sodium silicate liquid glass formula so no draining of the cooling system is required. It works with all types and brands of antifreeze, including conventional green or blue (silicate-based) and extended life red/orange or yellow (OAT/HOAT) coolant.
Liquid Copper stops leaks by forming a physical seal using organic and synthetic fibers, copper and an ionic-modified mineral. The seal forms as the coolant and product flow through the leak. A wetting agent cleans the sides of the hole or crack to prepare the surface for bonding. The first fibers catch on the side of the leak, building on each other to bridge the entire hole. The fibers then act as a sieve to trap more fibers, copper particles and minerals to create a composite seal. The seal is cemented with liquid glass. As the temperature increases, the liquid glass hardens to make the seal permanent. Liquid Copper will not harm the cooling system when properly installed, nor will it clog the cooling system or heater core.
Bar’s Leaks Liquid Copper can be used in any water-cooled vehicle, including cars, trucks, vans, SUVs and RVs. One 18 oz. bottle treats cooling systems up to six gallons.
Bar’s Leaks Liquid Copper is available to distribution in case packs of six. Like all Bar’s Leaks products, Liquid Copper is made in the U.S.A. The label includes directions in both English and Spanish.
