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. Six years later, car enthusiast Alan Rypinski bought the company and renamed it as Armor All® Protectant.
