DXTblu is a Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) used in a Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) reaction. It significantly reduces Nitrous Oxide concentrations in diesel exhaust emissions.
Australian Design Rules (ADR) 80/02 & ADR 80/3 proscribe heavy vehicle emission standards. These standards are met by using DEF products like DXTblu in the vehicles' SCR systems
DXTblu is a 32.5% solution of high-purity urea in de-mineralized water. It is is clear, non-toxic and safe to handle. It is non explosive, non flammable, nor harmful to the environment. DXTblu is classified under the minimum risk category of transportable fluids

The SCR (Selective Catalytic Reduction) chemical reaction transforms harmful nitrogen oxides (NOx) in diesel exhaust into harmless nitrogen gas and water vapour.
Vehicles using the SCR system gain an additional benefit because
the engines can be tuned for maximum fuel economy.
Average consumption of DXTblu is generally 5% of the diesel use.
You will use about 5 litres of DXTblu for every 100 litres of diesel.
DXTblu should be stored in a sealed container in a dry and well ventilated area.
It can be stored for up to one year if not in direct sunlight and not subject to
extreme heat or extreme cold.
