Gougeon revamps PRO-SET epoxy line
Gougeon Brothers Inc. has announced an overhaul in the chemistry, pricing and marketing of its PRO-SET line of advanced composite epoxies.
Gougeon Brothers Inc. (Bay City, Mich.) has announced an overhaul in the chemistry, pricing and marketing of its PRO-SET line of advanced composite epoxies. The company chose to revamp the line after noting that PRO-SET custom formulations consistently outsold some of the epoxies in its standard PRO-SET product line. The company says it realized it could deliver these popular products to customers faster, and at more competitive prices, by moving them to the standard product line. Accordingly, Gougeon’s chemists reformulated the PRO-SET line for enhanced performance and adjusted the chemistry to permit 3:1 mix ratios across the board in the laminating and infusion epoxies. Now, engineers and fabricators can select PRO-SET resins by viscosity and hardeners by speed. This enables them to select a combination that best suits a particular project and molding process. Further, hardeners are now priced the same in each category, regardless of cure speed. Gougeon also reorganized the product offerings into four distinct categories: Laminating, Infusion, Tooling and Adhesives. All products have been given corresponding category prefixes (LAM, INF, TLG or ADV) to help ensure the compatibility of resin and hardener selections.
