Ballistol is suitable the care of metal, wood, leather, rubber, synthetics, fur, skin and much more.

In 1874, Friedrich Wilhelm Klever, an attorney with interest in economy, founded the Klever Company in Cologne, Germany. He began producing oils and greases from coal and eventually bought a coal mine so he would not run out of raw materials. At the turn of the century the imperial German Army began to look for an all-round oil. The oil would be used not only to maintain the metallic parts of the soldier's rifle but also to protect the wooden stocks and leather equipment. The soldier was to use the same oil for the treatment of minor wounds, sores and scratches. Friedrich's son, Dr. Helmut Klever, had become a professor of chemistry at the Technical University of Karlsruhe. He set out to develop what the army wanted. In 1904 he succeeded in producing a special oil which he named BALLISTOL, from the word ballistic and the Latin word for oil, 'oleum'. It soon became obvious that the new oil had amazing capabilities. The army tested it and adopted it in 1905 and it remained in use until 1945. Word quickly spread and within a decade, hunters, boaters, motorists, hikers, mountaineers and outdoorsmen in Germany, Austria and Switzerland converted to the new miracle oil.

Ballistol forms a protective alkaline layer on metals, neutralizes acidic residues that encourage rusting and protects against corrosion. Through its ability to creep, Ballistol reaches even the narrowest corners and finest cracks in metal.

Ballistol protects smooth leather effectively against drying out, water, decay and other damage. Wood is protected, preserved and natural wood is even regenerated and protected against infestation by insects, dampness, and other damage. This universal oil is also suitable for the maintenance of petroleum-based synthetics. It hinders drying and embrittlement as well as freezing of the rubber around car doors in winter. The synthetic surfaces shine like new, without have to regrease.

Ballistol safe for skin and fully harmless if accidentally ingested.
