The Rust-Oleum Corporation was established in 1921 and has been globally recognized as a trusted brand for anti-rust products. Rust-Oleum products are known for being durable and innovative solutions to common problems.
The first Rust-Oleum paint was created when its founder, Robert Fergusson, noticed that fish oil on a ship's metal parts kept rust and corrosion at bay. Robert went on to create his first paint formula, using fish oil as a major ingredient.
The Rust-Oleum Corporation is committed to the environment. It promotes sustainability by encouraging customers to upcycle or repurpose existing items using Rust-Oleum products. Rust-Oleum also minimizes the environment impact of production by using less wasteful packaging, recycling and using energy-saving systems.
