Armor All


Armor All® began in 1962 when polymer chemist Joe Palcher discovered a ‘miracle formula’ that protected rubber, plastic and vinyl from UV radiation and ozone. In 1966 he began selling it as Tri-don – that’s No Dirt spelled backwards. Six years later, car enthusiast Alan Rypinski bought the company and renamed the product as Armor All® Protectant.
