Sustainability has become a buzzword in recent years, and it is becoming ever more apparent that we are depleting our planet’s resources much faster than they can be replaced. With this in mind, any product which can be reformulated to avoid the use of ingredients derived from fossil fuels is a good thing. Corrolan is one such product.
Corrolan is made from lanolin, also called wool oil. This oil is secreted as a wax by the skin glands of wool-bearing animals like sheep. The lanolin coats the sheep’s wool as it grows and gives it a waterproof quality, which is why sheep can remain healthy and happy even though they live outside in all weathers. When a sheep is sheared, the lanolin must be removed before the wool can be used for clothes and furnishings. As a by-product, it makes sense to reuse this chemical as a lubricant. And since we can be confident there will always be sheep, we can be sure supplies of our source material will not dry up any time soon.
The highly water resistant nature of lanolin means it can be used for rust prevention. There are now several rust removal products which are lanolin based, and Corrolan is a market leader. Manufactured in the UK for over 25 years, Corrolan is available in a range of formulae:
Corrolan Pure is a thick grease which lubricates and protects, and is ideal for automotive applications. Wherever you would normally use petroleum based grease, use Corrolan Pure instead.
Corrolan Turbo is a thinning spirit. Allows Corrolan Pure to be injected or sprayed when mixed to the appropriate consistency.
Corrolan Penetrator is one of the most sustainable rust removal products available. Used as a regular penetrating oil, or as a primer for Corrolan Pure.
Corrolan Active is a rust prevention product with self-healing properties. Its unique formula means it spreads to coat all surfaces in enclosed spaces, making it ideal as an underbody rust proofing treatment for cars.

Corrolan in Norway
As one of the world’s most northerly countries, the land of Norway has extremely demanding weather conditions. Heavy rain and snow are possible at almost any time of the year leading to salt being spread on the roads, and as a result, many vehicles suffer the effects of corrosion after only a few years on the road. But the motorists of Norway have discovered a great new way to protect their cars from the elements: Corrolan rust proofing products! The fact that our range is the fastest growing product of its type in such a region is a testament to its effectiveness.
