A little about the author:

Jack Josephsen is a practical thinker and brings a unique real-world perspective to every epoxy field - from residential flooring to off-shore repairs.

He also knows what it takes to run a successful business in the modern world of coatings. His company, Real World Epoxies, prides itself on manufacturing epoxies that perform in the field and is passionate about linking industry know how to provide consumers, contractors and suppliers with greater clarity, direction and confidence.

A couple of years ago he published his first book, a 210-page epoxy contractor handbook titled: “Finally, real answers for real contractors – Industrial Flooring”, which is available through NACE and Amazon. It was written as a way to provide real answers for real contractors striving for better results with epoxy flooring. You know, all the good stuff that doesn't get covered by glossy text books or one-day training courses.

Find out why it's received 5-star reviews and have been endorsed by major industry bodies by grabbing a copy for yourself.
