33 COATINGSPRO CONCRETE COVERED DECEMBER 2018 SAUEREISEN is a third-generation company that offers a complete line of organic and inorganic corrosion-re- sistant materials of construction for new and rehabilitation applications. Our engineered & progressive selection of organic linings and materials provide exceptional corrosion resistance, abrasion resistance and low permeability to a wide variety of chemicals. For over 118 years, the Sauereisen name has ranked among the leaders of specialty cement development. Likewise, our technology of inorganic products offers resistance to high acid concentrations and temperatures through 2000°F. ese engineered products are designed for protecting concrete and steel infrastructures from chemical and physical abuse while providing outstanding flexural and tensile strength. ese products are 100% solids, resistant to thermal shock as well as resistant to sulfuric acid or strong oxidation environments. Sauereisen's roots run deep in the field of corrosion. Our experience is in specialty materials that resist extreme temperatures and chemicals. We serve facility owners, engineers and contractors relying on dependable solutions to corrosive environments in chemical plants, petrochemical facilities, water & wastewater treatment plants and other processing areas. Sauereisen materials are produced in many forms to protect concrete or steel that would otherwise be vulnerable to aggressive chemical environments. ese solutions range from relatively thin coatings and linings to more heav y-duty refractories and polymer concretes. Sauereisen's chemi- cal-resistant materials of construction preserve infrastruc- ture 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. e company was founded in 1899 by C. Fred Sauereisen with the introduction of a ceramic-based adhesive still in use today. Our main areas of expertise are the restoration of infrastructure, the prevention of corrosion, and the insula- tion of high-temperature instrumentation. Innovation & Growth into Corrosion- Resistant Materials Early applications of Sauereisen products indicated a high degree of resistance to acidic environments. By modify- ing the filler systems, Sauereisen introduced mortars and refractory-grade materials. is led to expansion into the power, chemical processing and steel industries during the mid-20th century. Specifications for Sauereisen as a means of protecting concrete and steel from aggressive chemicals remain commonplace in such structures as flue gas ducts, process tanks and floors. Sauereisen expanded its technology through targeted R&D and acquisitions. In addition to historic mortars, refractories and grouts, additional product categories now encompass coatings, linings, membranes and polymer concretes. Formulations range from silicates and furans to epoxy, vinyl ester and urethanes. In recent times, markets with distinct environmental requirements have driven Sauereisen's direction in corrosion. e municipal wastewater arena is one such market. W hat distinguishes Sauereisen is the product breadth and depth to recommend the most appropriate engineered system and the technical ability to service those who install it. Sauereisen maintains a global presence with an exten- sive 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 requir- ing specialty materials.
