Coolant leak repair

K-Seal uses a ceramic and copper formula that mixes with all types of anti-freezes. The sealant works by mixing with engine coolant and making a ceramic repair after the engine has reached working temperature. The company says the sealant works in engine blocks, heads, radiators, heater matrixes, freeze plugs and head gaskets and will not block or damage the cooling system. The company offers a money-back guarantee.
