Bardahl

Bardahl

BARDAHL is a brand name of a line of petroleum lubrication products used in automobiles and other internal combustion engines.

The company was founded in 1939 by Ole Bardahl, a Norwegian immigrant to the United States. Its original factories were located in Ballard, Washington. In the mid-1950s, Bardahl was the leading brand of motor oil and oil additives in the United States, a leadership position the company no longer enjoys. [ [http://www.bardahl.com/history.asp History of Bardahl (official site)] ] The brand continues to market a number of lubricants and additives used in automobile engines and in motor sports. [ [http://www.bardahl.com/mods/gallery/gallery.asp Bardahl product catalog] ]

Bardahl's oil additive was advertised during the 1950s in animated TV commercials which showed the product's effectiveness in combating engine problems such as "Sticky Valves," "Gummy Rings," and "Blackie Carbon," all of which were anthropomorphized in the commercials.

The company remains prominent as a result of its sponsorship of a number of motor sports competitors. The "Miss Bardahl" has been a consistent contender in hydroplane racing in the United States. [ [http://www.thunderboats.org/history/history0169.html "The Miss Bardahl Story"] ] The brand also has a large presence in stock car and open wheel racing.

Ole Bardahl founded the Bardahl Manufacturing Company in Seattle, Washington on September 12th, 1939 and sometime later established a permanent presence north of the border with what is now Bardahl Canada. Over the years, Bardahl increased its global presence and can now be found in more than 80 countries throughout the world. There is no better truism than "World Famous Bardahl". The goal of the company was to provide all types of industry with specialty lubricants that were superior to those currently available. This would eventually include many fuel additives for gas-, diesel- and propane-powered vehicles. Machines of industry would benefit from the superior lubrication of Bardahl's Polar Attraction Formula through the reduction of friction, wear and heat, the natural enemies of all mechanisms which require lubrication.

Throughout the years Bardahl became involved in various types of racing, using events as proving grounds for its products, as well as for the new technologies produced by the company's research and development arm. Types included Unlimited Hydroplanes, Offshore Powerboats, Unlimited Airplane Racing, INDY cars and CART Racing, NASCAR, Motorcycle and Snowmobile racing, to name a few. In its lifetime Bardahl has expanded its product line to include more than 250 different products, including engine oils, motor oil and fuel additives, and specialty lubricants. The company also expanded to foreign markets, opening plants in countries such as France, Mexico and Brazil.
