The Shell Rotella® brand is excited to offer a complete product line of extended life coolants

The Shell ROTELLA® brand is excited to offer a complete product line of extended life coolants (ELC) and fully formulated engine coolants, designed to deliver:

  • Protection against overheating – Excellent heat transfer properties allow heat to transfer more effectively, protect against freeze and boil-over and help keep engines running cool
  • Corrosion protection – Corrosion inhibitor technology protects metals against all forms of corrosion
  • Maintenance savings – Technology helps extend coolant life and prolong the life of seals, hoses and other cooling system components – helping reduce overall maintenance costs

ELCs are designed to go 600,000 on-highway miles (and beyond with proper monitoring) and provide overall reduction in cooling system maintenance. ELCs also offer complete cooling system component protection by helping to reduce water-pump failures, hard-water-scale deposits and silicate gel (the green goo you often see). We understand consumers’ challenges and have designed a product portfolio to help make maintenance needs easier.

Our most advanced coolant, Shell ROTELLA® Ultra ELC™, is formulated to meet more severe operational conditions of modern, hotter-running engines.
