AdBlue ® is a simple and non-hazardous product. However, SCR system is extremely sensitive to impurities; for this reason it is essential to prevent AdBlue ® contamination to ensure SCR system functions correctly, and also to avoid expensive repair costs. Below some clear rules to follow when using the solution:

  • Only use AdBlue ® equipment when storing or refilling AdBlue®
  • Always keep AdBlue ® equipment clean and free from dust or dirt
  • Ensure AdBlue ® tank and container seals are intact
  • Use demineralised water (or AdBlue ®) when cleaning internally or priming AdBlue ® equipment

  • Wear protective clothing in case of handling of large quantities of AdBlue ® with the risk of a spill
  • In case of accidental spill of AdBlue ® on the ground, in a vehicle or on a painted surface, rinse thoroughly with water
  • Protect from extreme temperatures. AdBlue ® starts freezing at an ambient temperature of -11˚C
