Sauereisen Corrosion-Resistant Coatings & Linings by Sauereisen SAUEREISEN is a third-generation company that offers a complete line of organic and inorganic corrosion-resistant materials of construction for new and rehabilitation applica- tions. Our engineered and progressive selection of organic linings and materials provides exceptional corrosion resis- tance, 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. Like- wise, our technology of inorganic products offers resistance to high acid concentrations and temperatures through 2,000 °F. These engineered products are designed for protecting concrete and steel infrastructures from chemical and physi- cal abuse while providing outstanding flexural and tensile strength. These products are 100% solids, resistant to ther- mal shock, as well as resistant to sulfuric acid or strong oxi- dation environments. Sauereisen's roots run deep in the field of corrosion. Our experience is in specialty materials that resist extreme tem- peratures and chemicals. We serve facility owners, engi- neers, 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. These solutions range from relatively thin coatings and linings to more heavy-duty refractories and polymer concretes. Sauerei- sen'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. The company was founded in 1899 by C. Fred Sauerei- sen 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 and Growth into Corrosion-Resistant Materials Early applications of Sauereisen products indicated a high degree of resistance to acidic environments. By modi- fying the filler systems, Sauereisen introduced mortars and refractory-grade materials. This 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. 160 Gamma Dr. Pittsburgh, PA 15238-2989, USA Tel: +1 412-963-0303 Email: Web site: Sauereisen expanded its technology through targeted R&D and acquisitions. In addition to historic mortars, refrac- tories, 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 corro- sion. The municipal wastewater arena is one such market. What distinguishes Sauereisen is the product breadth and depth to recommend the most appropriate engineered sys- tem 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 cit- ies throughout the world. Our manufacturing and warehouse facilities located in the United States, Europe, the Pacific Rim, and Latin America provide worldwide product distribu- tion. Sauereisen remains dedicated to solving the problems requiring specialty materials. Sauereisen linings: ideal for secondary containment. W W W.MATERIALSPERFORMANCE.COM SEPTEMBER 2018 A46
