The Building Issue

For this issue we’ve dug through our Epoxyworks archive to put together a selection of all building articles. There are two reasons for doing this. For the last couple of months, we have been redesigning the PRO-SET Epoxy product line. This has taken an incredible amount of work by most everyone at Gougeon Brothers. especially those who write and produce Epoxyworks. In addition, since the beginning of the year, the chemists, lab technicians, and technical staff, who are the main writers of our articles, have been moving into their brand new quarters.

Check out our new Technical Department workshop.

The culture of Gougeon Brothers is building. This new addition, this test lab, every product we sell is geared toward the building of things. It is a company founded by builders. One of our founders, Jan C. Gougeon, passed away December 18, 2012, at the age of 67.
