*Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)*

What does WD-40 stand for?WD-40[®] literally stands for Water
Displacement, 40th formula. That's the name straight out of the lab book
used by the chemist who developed the product back in 1953. The chemist,
Norm Larsen, was attempting to concoct a formula to prevent
corrosion—a task which is done by displacing water. Norm's persistence
paid off when he perfected the formula on his 40th try. Please see Our
History for more information.

What does WD-40® Multi-Use Product
contain?While the ingredients in WD-40[®] Multi-Use Product are secret, we
can tell you what it does NOT contain. WD-40[®] Multi-Use Product does not
contain silicone, kerosene, water, graphite, or chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs).

Why can't I empty all the product in my aerosol can?Since product
“evacuation” problems – where some of the product may be
left inside the can but not able to be sprayed – are common throughout
the aerosol industry, they can affect some of the products we produce. If
you are having trouble with an aerosol can not spraying (failure to
evacuate), please try this brief troubleshoot:

1. Twist the nozzle 1/4 turn and try again. Turning the nozzle realigns the
dip tube in the can.
2. If turning does not work, please try another 1/4 turn. Continue to move
it around a bit until liquid sprays out.

If this still does not work, here are some times to prevent this from
happening going forward:

· Hold your can
