Penray says more complete combustion can help reduce regenerations of the diesel particulate filter.

PermaStop is a highly concentrated formula with a copper blend that's designed to keep seal-activating par- ticulars in motion longer resulting in a more effective seal. It works on head gaskets, radiators, heater cores, freeze plugs, water pump casings, cylinder heads and engine blocks. PermaStop reportedly continues to seal the prob- lem long after the initial use.

The container covers open 90 degrees to provide full access to the contents inside, with a single person being able to open or close the cover in a few seconds without tools or ma- chines. The container covers are manufactured for harsh weather and are built with UV-protected, impact- resistant, high-density polyethylene. The covers are permanently mounted to the container, staying attached at all times including during trans- portation to a landfill or scrapyard. The covers meet EPA regulations for storm water exposure to ensure that water will not pool up and add weight to a container when sitting still, and have locks to prevent theft and unauthorized dumping.
