HISTORY

1953

Calling themselves The Rocket Chemical Company, a trio of ambitious chemists led by Norman Larsen sets out to develop a range of degreasers and rust prevention solvents from their humble laboratory in San Diego, California.

After 40 attempts, the group perfects a water displacing formula so effective that aerospace contractor Convair begins using it to protect the outer skins of their Atlas missiles from rust and corrosion.

It took scientists 40 formulations to perfect this unique water displacement technology. Dubbed Water Displacement 40th attempt, the product was later shortened to the iconic WD-40.
