Devra Todd Bennung, 86, a Cape May resident since 1998, died Sunday, Oct. 27, at Victoria Manor, a nursing home in North Cape May, of complications from a broken hip.
In the early 1950s, Mrs. Bennung and her husband, Karl Jr., cofounded what is now Acrymax Technologies in Media, their son, Scott, said.
A 1996 Inquirer story reported that the firm produces "a series of coatings used to restore and preserve roofing, especially galvanized tin."
A Bennung coating was featured on an episode of the PBS series This Old House, the story reported.
And a Bennung product also received government approval "as a protective coating for the insulation on the space shuttle's solid-fuel booster rockets," the story said.
