Disse fyre ved! Vi er stolte af at støtte Santa Cruz-syndikatet! #Syndikat #HistoryLesson Posted @withregram • @scsyndicate "You only need two tools in life. WD-40 and Duct Tape. If it doesn't move and should, used WD-40. If it moves and shouldn't, use Duct Tape." They look after all our cleaning, degreasing and lubrication needs 🌟 It's the turn of @wd40bike for #FactualFridays 👩🏫. . History Lesson: • 1953 - Rocket Chemical Company is founded with the drive of creating a line of rust-prevention solvents and degreasers for use in the aerospace industry. The 4 person team worked out of a small lab in San Diego where they started to work on a special formula. 40 attempts later the perfect formula was worked out and it's the exact same formula used today (top secret). WD-40 Stands for water displacement perfected on the 40th attempt. WD-40 was first used by an aerospace contractor to protect the outer skin of the Atlas missile from rust + corrosion. The product worked so well, employees were sneaking it out of the plant to use at home. This prompted RCC founder (Norm Larsen), to experiment putting the product into aerosol cans to be used at home. . • 1958 - First on store shelves in San Diego . • 1960 - 7 people now work for RCC + sold on average 45 cases per day from the trunk of their cars. . • 1961 - RCC receives its first truckload order. Staff work overtime to ensure this can be fulfilled as it was used to recondition vehicles + equipment damaged by Hurricane Carla. . • 1968 - Kits containing WD-40 sent to Vietnam to prevent moisture damage on firearms. . • 1969 - Company renamed WD-40 after it's only product. . • 1973 - WD-40 goes public! . • 1993 - WD-40 is found in 4/5 American households. Among a tonne of other products developed since then, bike specific lube + cleaner was launched in 2012. . Fun Facts: • WD-40 have a list of 2000+ uses. Here are two of our favourite stories: . ⚡ A bus driver in Asia used WD-40 to uncoil a python from the undercarriage of his bus . ⚡ WD-40 was used by police officers to remove a naked burglar who was stuck in an air-conditioning vent. . From rockets to snakes, we are stoked to be supported by a brand that is so goo
