Throughout the company’s history, an innovative, problem-solving philosophy has pioneered major advances in chemical technology and product development that not only met but anticipated customers’ needs. This approach has steadily fueled Tremco’s growth over the years and recognition of the company’s technological leadership.
In 1934, Tremco was tapped to supply the products used to caulk the Washington Monument. These products were expected to last for approximately 20 years. They lasted 30 years.
By the early 1960s, the Cleveland plant underwent a major renovation, capped by the installation of a highly sophisticated polymer reactor which enabled the company to create previously unknown polymer compounds and an era of development began. Using these compounds, Tremco began to develop exotic high performance sealants never before seen in the industry.
