In 1899 Sauereisen introduced its original product — a high-temperature adhesive cement for assembly applications. The ability of this ceramic-based material to resist acid was originally viewed as a secondary benefit. In time, the acid-resistant nature of the original product line helped Sauereisen expand into corrosion resistant applications to protect infrastructure.
Sauereisen first entered the industrial market by supplying mortars for chimneys in the power industry and for floors and tanks in the steel industry. Development that followed included monolithic refractories applied by gunite and then diversification into organic coatings and linings.
Today, Sauereisen's corrosion-resistant materials and specialty cements are providing long-lasting solutions throughout the world for industries including wastewater, power, chemical processing, food & beverage and others.
