Sauereisen History
For over a century, the Sauereisen name has ranked among the leaders of specialty cement development. When he was just a teenager in 1899, C. Fred Sauereisen, who worked with George Westinghouse in the development of the first porcelain insulator, founded Sauereisen Cements Company. The first Sauereisen cement, at one time used within practically every automobile manufactured in the United States, is still popular today for high temperature adhesive applications.

Over 100 Years of History
Sauereisen's first facility, shown here during the Flood of 1936, is pictured above. Operations moved across town within Sharpsburg for many years, and then to the current location in the RIDC Industrial Park. Our last plant expansion occurred in 1997 with the addition of our coatings blending & warehousing space.

Sauereisen Today
Today Sauereisen is a third-generation company that has grown into one of the best-known corrosion-resistant material manufacturers in the world. Our product portfolio includes a complete line of organic and inorganic corrosion-resistant materials of construction for new and rehabilitation applications.

Sauereisen maintains a global presence with an extensive network of technical sales representatives in major cities throughout the world. Our manufacturing and warehouse facilities located in the United States, Europe, the Pacific Rim and Latin America provide worldwide product distribution.

Sauereisen remains dedicated to solving the problems requiring specialty materials. Our main areas of expertise are the restoration of infrastructure, the prevention of corrosion, and the insulation of high-temperature instrumentation.

Sauereisen Inc. is a third-generation family business that manufactures specialty adhesives and construction materials. The company offers two main product lines. One branch of the business includes a collection of ceramic-based cements that withstand high temperatures. The cements are used in the assembly and insulation of electrical components such as heating elements, resistors, igniters and halogen lamps. The original product, formulated by C. Fred Sauereisen in 1899, is still widely-used today in bonding instrumentation comprised of metal, ceramic and glass.

The other main branch of the Sauereisen business involves materials that withstand corrosion. Sauereisen materials are produced in many forms to protect concrete or steel that would otherwise be vulnerable to aggressive chemical environments. These solutions range from relatively thin coatings and linings to more heavy-duty refractories and polymer concretes. Sauereisen’s chemical-resistant materials of construction preserve infrastructure in the wastewater, power generation, food & beverage and chemical processing industries. Ultimately the use of Sauereisen products helps the environment by enabling potentially harmful substances to be contained.

Sauereisen’s research, production, and administrative headquarters reside in O’Hara Township. The products are marketed among multiple parties including engineering firms, application contractors, and end-users for specification. Sauereisen’s network of sales representatives, distributors, and licensees extends globally. In recent years, international business has accounted for up to 45% of revenue, most extensively in Latin America and the Pacific Rim.

The Sauereisen Vision is to be a world-class provider of specialty solutions in the industries that it serves. This statement applies both to the impact of the company’s value and the manner in which it is delivered. Organizational collaboration throughout Sauereisen has resulted in the identification of Company Values including Integrity, Respect, Innovation, Commitment and Pursuit of Excellence.

Sauereisen continues to innovate with materials and application methods for the municipal wastewater industry. Our materials prevent corrosion to potentially vulnerable concrete and steel infrastructure. In addition, Sauereisen products prohibit water inflow & infiltration, a prevalent problem in wastewater collection systems.

Since entering the wastewater market over thirty years ago, our credibility has grown steadily. Sauereisen is positioned to lead with economical, user-friendly coatings and linings technology. These incorporate organic polymers specifically formulated for the municipal wastewater environment.

The Sauereisen Research Laboratory’s thorough understanding of the microbiologically induced corrosion process is a key to differentiating our linings from others. Our assertion is that corrosion resistance is the most critical factor in predicting the long-term success of a material in a chemically aggressive environment.

Consequently, Sauereisen’s epoxy-based SewerGard 210 family of products is designed to exhibit low permeability. This enhances corrosion resistance and extends the longevity of underground infrastructure such as manholes and lift stations. SewerGard is available in several variations to accommodate desired thickness and methods of application.

One grade of SewerGard may be spincasted to allow manhole restoration projects to proceed safely and easily from ground level. A trowel, airless pump equipment, a roller, or plural component spray equipment may apply other grades of SewerGard. Spray application of SewerGard is ideal for enabling preventive measures in new construction. It is a critical element for municipal asset management.

Established in 1899, Sauereisen delivers the credibility that can only be attained by a history of success. From collection systems to treatment plants, Sauereisen offers the technology and experience to generate confidence.

Third-generation manufacturer of corrosion-resistant materials

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. For examples of our areas of expertise are: 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.”
