Default Nissan long life coolant blue

The manual says my 2011 altima requires the above coolant or "equivalent".
There is no information about the contents of this product so, what is the equivalent?
I'm assuming it is organic acid technology (OAT) free of nitrites, phosphates and silicates but not sure.
Can I trust the Pep Boys "Asian" blue coolant? It does list Nissan as compatible.
Anyone know for sure?

thx for your responses

According to the msds sheet it is the exact same thing that GM uses(not Dex-cool). I'm assuming they use it for their Chevy City Express van which is a rebadged Nissan.We sell the Nissan coolant for $24.95 per gallon. Amazon has the AC Delco version for $16.01 with free prime shipping.

Nissan anti-freeze is made by Pentosin. Pentosin Pentafrost A3 blue is exactly the same as genuine Nissan blue. You can get it from Rockauto.com or you can find it on Ebay, among other places.

Default thx for the advice guys

from your information I have figured out the car needs HOAT coolant.
Hybrid Organic Acid Technology.
Too bad Nissan makes it so difficult to determine these small technicalities.
This coolant has both organic and inorganic additives for reducing corrosion inside the engine.
The one I want is Zerex full strength Asian, but is only available in 50/50 mixture.
Any 50/50 mixture is a rip off C'mon it's half water.
1 gallon of distilled water is $1.49
Other products like Prestone and others don't tell you what's in there product.
It's a secret lol .... not buying it
Don't need or want any "secrets" in my cooling system lol
