Product description

TenCate Amlite SC8020A is an unsupported epoxy resin film incorporating low density microspheres and is supplied on a roll (15m x 400mm) or in sheets (625mm x 400mm). The material has been developed to offer a long outlife and flexible cure schedules 70°C to 130°C (158°F – 266°F). As a core material in sandwich structures, TenCate Amlite SC8020A offers many solutions and advantages for the composite designer. Considerable cost reductions can be realised when replacing prepreg as the core material, and where sandwich cores below 3mm are difficult to achieve in Aluminum or Nomex honeycombs, Amlite is a superior alternative. TenCate Amlite SC8020A offers reduced processing, a one shot cure, the ability to anchor inserts or fastenings and increases the opportunity to consider lightweight, thin walled composite sandwich structures. TenCate Amlite SC8020A is compatible for co-cure with TenCate’s E720, E722 and 8020 prepreg.
