Third-generation Manufacturer and Two-time Recipient of the Presidential 'E Star' Award for Exporting Excellence

We've come a long way since 1899, when C. Fred Sauereisen developed the first Sauereisen high-temperature adhesive cement that was used within practically every automobile manufactured in the US (and is still popular for high temperature adhesive applications).

Today, our product portfolio has grown to include a complete line of organic and inorganic corrosion-resistant materials of construction for new and rehabilitation applications. Examples of our areas of expertise: restoration of infrastructure, the prevention of corrosion, sulfur bonding compounds and the insulation of high-temperature instrumentation.

We are proud of what we have accomplished over the past century and look forward to solving challenges with our customers over the next 100 years.

Sauereisen| A High-Touch, Hands-On Approach

A third-generation company, Sauereisen is in the business of producing protective linings, coatings and ceramics for industrial uses.

Yet according to Eric Sauereisen, President, he likes to think of the company as being in the information business. 'The constant improvements in communication has played into our hands and allows us to give a very high level of service that people don't expect. We've been consistent in aligning that high-touch and hands-on approach not unlike a family. You see us when you need us and you see us a lot in between. It's why I like to say we have grown from a family company to a company family. Our success is not really what the family dictates, but what the family generates from the entire team. We couldn't have gotten this far if it was family alone.”

Over a century of specialty cement development

Founded by C. Fred Sauereisen in 1899, Fred was a mostly self-taught ceramist who worked with George Westinghouse on the first porcelain insulator. Fred's interest in ceramics launched the Sauereisen Cement Company and by applying his knowledge, he developed a signature product – Insa-Lute Adhesive Cement No. 1 – that served as the core of an entire product line.

This was only the beginning of what rapidly grew to be an internationally known manufacturer and distributor of engineered products.

Today, more than a century later, Sauereisen continues to be a family-run company which continues the tradition of new and innovative ideas while maintaining the strength of strong core values that C. Fred Sauereisen introduced so long ago.

Insa-Lute Adhesive Cement No. 1

This bonding agent was the 1st product formulated by Sauereisen Cements Company and is still used globally for high-temperature electrical assembly applications (automotive and appliance industries).
