In 1903 one of the leading manufacturers of enclosed fuses was having trouble with their soldering due to the variation in the quality of the particular grade of soldering flux which they were using. The M W Dunton Company of Providence, RI, learning of this, made up a soldering paste with the sole object of helping the other fellow. This paste gave such satisfaction that the name “Nokorode” was adopted and it was put on the market in the expectation that there were other people who might also be interested in securing a soldering paste that was identically the same all the time. The results was that the sales of Nokoride increased rapidly from the first and have doubled every year for fourteen years. 1

On May 23rd, 1903 M W Dunton & Co filed for a label with the U S Patent office for “Nokorode”, the name chosen for their new solder paste. It was registered on June 16th of the same year under number 10,101. 2



In 1906 the company was located at 65 Atlantic Avenue, Providence, R. I. It is unclear if this was their origional location in 1903. 3

In 1907 the M W Dunton Company, Providence, RI was incorporated with a capital stock of $50,000 to succeed to the business of M W Dunton & Co, The new firm will devote its entire attention to insulating materials. The management is unchanged. 4

Insulating materials is exactly what course the company took as it was listed as being a manufacturer of uncoated armature tapes and sleevings, red rope, paper, press board, Nokorode soldering paste and Black Diamond friction tape in 1909. 5

Business must have been booming because in 1920, the M W Dunton Company, now at 150 Niagra Street 6 Providence, RI moved into a new factory at 670 Eddy Street, Providence, RI that had five times the space it formally had. 7



In 1998 the company was bought by RectorSeal which still sells Nokorode solder paste 9 to this day. 8


Soldering Kinks


As part of the promotion of their solder products M W Dunton published a book called Soldering Kinks. Soldering Kinks was filled with soldering techniques, tips, and projects supplied by posters that sent them into the company. M W Dunton would pay $1.00 for any "Kink" that was published as seen by this ad from 1916 in Telephony Magazine.
