Slow evaporation & fast penetration
Bolt Off was initially scientifically developed to meet the needs of a large solar salt company. They had a variety of fixed and mobile plant in a corrosive environment requiring ongoing maintenance. Primarily they needed a versatile, fast acting and slow evaporating penetrant, both in bulk and aerosol packaging. They also preferred for this product to act as a preventative against corrosion and not harm rubber components. Bolt Off was the solution.
Bolt Off is proudly owned by Pacbalt Pty Ltd trading as ‘Bolt Off Solutions’. This company, which initially traded as ‘Bellando’, was formed in 1995 by two Mackay district residents.
In the beginning Pacbalt Pty Ltd manufactured a broad range of products but their most prized was Bolt Off, a penetrating and releasing agent which they were confident had the ability to supersede all other similar products.
Bolt Off was tried and tested by the original owner’s husbands (both farmers) for a number of applications with impressive results. Confident with their product, it was not unusual for these original owners to leave cartons of Bolt Off with retailers with payment due on successful sale.
Simply relying on word of mouth and demonstrated superior performance, the popularity of Bolt Off grew significantly over the next 20 years of its own accord.
