I hid my secret during the world war and won endless battles.
In 70 years I have crossed oceans, I have traveled the world on asphalt, I have glided over the skies of unknown countries.
I am the fluid that gives life to passion.
This is the way.
It is not a question of following instinct, but of being bold.
We give man what his engine asks to us: superlative quality lubricants and additives.
The Formula Polar Plus was discovered by Ole Bardahl in 1939 and was immediately placed under military secrecy by the Government of the United States of America.
These were the years in which World War II was dramatically unfolding, which saw America engaged in war to oppose Hitler's Nazi Germany.
Ole Bardahl founded the Bardahl Manufacturing Corporation and developed the Polar Plus Formula which consists of electrically charged molecules capable of chemically attaching themselves to metal like micro-magnets. These molecules make it possible to reduce friction between two metal surfaces to such an extent as to ensure correct lubrication.
This was essentially the reason that prompted the American government to put this revolutionary formula under military secrecy. The use in the military field consisted in equipping the fighters with the Bardahl lubricant containing the Formula Polar Plus in order to allow the pilot to emergency return to the base in the event that the lubricant tank was hit by a barrage of bullets. Hitting the tank of an aircraft in fact involves the emptying of the same which results in seizure of the engine and consequent loss of control of the aircraft. The extraordinary effectiveness of Bardahl Polar Plus (which keeps friction in the engine under control even in the accidental absence of lubricant) allowed the pilot to maintain command of the aircraft, thus allowing him to carry out an emergency landing.
The Bardahl Polar Plus formula is still the basis of all Bardahl lubricants that over the years have been perfected and evolved, always trying to maintain their extraordinary performance today as then.
