Storage & Handling

  • Store AdBlue® away from the light.
  • Beyond 30°C, AdBlue® starts decomposing.
  • AdBlue® freezes at -11°C. The automatic warming system of the vehicle helps in making it liquid again within 20 minutes after engine start. During this time, the vehicle can be operated normally.
  • If AdBlue® is stored outside the vehicle’s tank, gently thaw it. Then, it can be used normally again.
  • Keep the AdBlue® equipment clean, away from dust and dirt.
  • AdBlue® shelf life is minimum 12 months if it is stored at a temperature below 30°C.
  • Only use AdBlue® delivered into dedicated and sealed AdBlue® packaging.
  • AdBlue® is classified as non-hazardous: in case of contact with skin or clothes, it is recommended to rinse with water.
  • AdBlue® can have a corrosive action on certain metals: in case of spilling, rinse with water.
  • Do not use equipment (canisters, etc.) used for other liquids to refill or store AdBlue®.
  • Close tightly the AdBlue® tank and canister after refill.
