…so, with such a need for improved paint systems, paint technology evolved.
…and paint manufacturing went from this:
Ever since, paint technology has improved and today’s assets are far better protected
BUT……steel still rusts!
So there was a definite need for a treatment to stop rust and prevent it spreading.
An English Scientist and his colleague had an inspiration – they researched and developed what became known as Neutrarust 661
It wasn’t a quick process – it took them over a year.
The ‘Eureka’ moment came when at trial formulation number 661 – they finally made it work!
And so, the product took the ‘now famous’ name of Neutrarust 661.
As word spread of this new ‘Wonder Product’, Neutrarust International Ltd was formed by the inventor, who took personal control of the business and marketing.
The first major breakthrough was the Ministry of Defence. With most military equipment being made of steel, rust was a major problem with repairs costing £millions.
So the M.O.D. had a vested interest in this great product and it was tried, tested and approved for use on all assets. Neutrarust 661 and TL were granted NATO Codification.
In fact, at the time of the Falklands War, the British Fleet was in need of some paint and tonnes of Neutrarust were used ‘en-voyage’ to tidy up the ships – which were bound to be featuring in the World’s media during the campaign.
It has been in use, particularly by the Royal Navy, ever since!
The business grew and appointed various distributors around the world who promoted the product with great success.
Sadly, the inventor, who had driven the development and marketing of Neutrarust died in 1990 and without his management skills, the business faltered.
Global Corrosion Solutions, a company totally unassociated with the inventor – but with the approval of his family – was formed with a view to saving the product and making it more readily available in the United Kingdom and beyond.
Further security was obtained when the Intellectual Property Rights to the formulas were assigned in 2010 from the direct descendant of the inventor.
