NEWS BiZ Brief 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 a unique trend: PRO-SET custom resin formulations were consistently outselling some of the epoxies in its standard PRO-SET product line. The company says it realized it could deliver these popular custom products to customers faster, and at more competitive prices, by making them part of its standard product line. Accordingly, Gougeon's chemists reformulated the PRO-SET line for enhanced performance and adjusted the chemistry to allow 3:1 mix ratios across the board in the laminating and infusion epoxies. PRO-SET resins can now be chosen by viscosity, and hardeners can be chosen by speed. This allows engineers and fabricators to select a resin/hardener combination that best suits their specific projects and processes. PRO-SET hardeners are now priced the same in each category, regardless of cure speed. Gougeon also reorganized PRO-SET's product offerings into four distinct categories: Laminating, Infusion, Tooling and Adhesives. All products have been given a category prefix of LAM, INF, TLG or ADV to assure the compatibility of resin and hardener selections. 22 | high-performance composites
