Military Specification MIL-C-11755 Arctic type, nonvolatile antifreeze compound is intended for use in the cooling system of liquid-cooled
internal combustion engines. It Ois used for protection against freeing primarily in arctic regions where the ambient temperature remains for
extended periods close to -- .40 F. or drops as low as --90" F.
Use an accurate hydrometer. To test hydrometer, use 1 part ethylener glycol antifreeze to 2 parts water. This should produce a hydrometer
reading of 0 F.
Note. Fasten a tag near the radiator tiller cap indicating the type antifreeze.
