There’s a high-seas adventure story behind the creation of Rust-Oleum. Captain Robert Fergusson didn’t intend to start Rust-Oleum
Corporation nearly a century ago. He lunged for the container of raw fish oil
before it spilled on his rusted metal deck.



But the Scottish-born sea captain noticed that his spill stopped the spread of
corrosion. This observation led him to create the world’s first
rust-preventative paint. But it wasn’t easy.



The Captain landed and settled in New Orleans to spend years conducting
painstaking (and smelly) research. He finally settled on a fish-oil based paint
that stopped rust, dried overnight and left no lingering aroma. Rust-Oleum
Corporation was born.



Today Rust-Oleum Corporation is a worldwide leader in protective paints and
coatings for both home and industry. We offer a wide product range including
decorative fashion paints, and, of course, the famous rust-fighting formula
that started it all.
