It’s hard to believe that cement glue was invented in 1903.
It was developed by a German engineer named Hermann Reuter and patented in 1918, but its first commercial use was in the 1950s as a glue for concrete.
It has since been used to fix the seams of concrete, waterproof concrete, and even paint it.
