Originally introduced in 2008, the product formulation is now blended with twenty five percent more renewable, vegetable-based ingredients. DOWFROST™ RVR is available in convenient, one-gallon containers manufactured with a new proprietary plastic from Dow. CONTINUUM™ from Dow is stronger, lighter and requires fewer raw materials to manufacture than traditional plastic. This new packaging contains eight percent less plastic than the bottle used in 2008.

DOWFROST™ RVR is formulated using synthetically produced, food-grade propylene glycol and corrosion inhibitors, ingredients that are Generally Regarded as Safe (GRAS) and considered suitable as food additives by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). DOWFROST™ RVR Fluid complies with the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) and FDA regulations for use in applications where contact with food or beverage products could occur. Products like DOWFROST™ RVR are important for use in outdoor applications, especially when there is a possibility of drinking water contamination, or a chance the product could be spilled near a lake or river. Since DOWFROST™ RVR is readily biodegradable and is practically non-toxic to aquatic life, it will break down if spilled on the ground or in the water without harming fish, reptiles, or mammals. The product is also safe for use where accidental exposure to children or pets could occur.

DOWFROST™ RVR is manufactured and marketed in conjunction with SOUTHWIN Ltd. ( and will be available at select Wal-Mart, AutoZone, O'Reilly Auto Parts, Advance Auto Parts, Pep Boys and other retailers. More information about DOWFROST™ RVR can be found at
