HOW IS IT MADE?
AdBlue is a high quality urea solution that is easy to use
AdBlue is the registered trademark for AUS32, or Aqueous Urea Solution 32.5% that is used with the Selective Catalytic Reduction system (SCR) to reduce emissions of oxides of nitrogen from the exhaust of UK diesel vehicles.
AdBlue is a 32.5% solution of high-purity urea in de-mineralized water that is clear, non-toxic and safe to handle. It is non explosive, non flammable nor harmful to the environment.
AdBlue is classified under the minimum risk category of transportable fluids.
• It is not a fuel, nor a fuel additive and needs to be used in a dedicated tank in your heavy-duty vehicle.
• It is replenished in a similar way to refuelling diesel.
• Should you spill AdBlue on your hands, simply wash it off with water.
AdBlue is produced from a high purity urea solution. Urea is produced by the synthesis of ammonia and CO2 (carbon dioxide). Technical urea is found in such products as shampoos, cosmetics and glues. Urea used in AdBlue is of a different quality grade then that used for fertilizers.
Quality AdBlue is directly produced from the urea manufacturing process. This urea solution is then diluted with processed demineralized water. A specific quality and high purity of water is used for AdBlue to avoid all contamination.
***“Using out of specification water in the production of AdBlue is probably the greatest threat to your catalyst, and therefore your vehicle, so it is essential to purchase from a supplier who produces Def Solution to the global ISO specification”
