THE STORY BEHIND THE NAME
In 1921, a chance sighting of steel reinforcing bars sticking out of old concrete rubble piqued the curiosity of company founder, Albert C. Bean, Sr. Inquisitive by nature, he noticed that the rebar was completely rust-free.
After further investigation and testing, his discovery of the anti-corrosive alkaline conditions in cement led to a patent for a highly effective, rust-inhibiting coatings formulation. In tribute to his breakthrough, he changed the company name to Tnemec – cement spelled backwards.
