See Inside the Office of Rust-Oleum

When sea captain Robert Fergusson accidentally spilled raw fish oil on his rusty metal boat deck, he discovered the anti-corrosive properties the oil offered. In that moment, the original idea for Rust-Oleum was born. Today, the company is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of protective paint and coatings for both residential and commercial projects.
