In 1953, a fledgling company called Rocket Chemical Company and its staff of three set out to create a line of rust prevention solvents and degreasers for use in the Aerospace industry in San Diego.


It took them 40 attempts to get the water displacing formula worked out. The original secret formula for WD-40, which stands for water displacement, was perfected on the 40th try.
