Product description

TenCate EF8020 adhesive film is a high strength epoxy adhesive formulation supplied in the form of a light weight flexible film. It is intended for metal to metal or sandwich core to skin bonds and has a strong self-filleting action in honeycomb-to-skin bonds. The film is protected on one side by a release paper and on the other by a polythene separator. A lightweight polyester net is incorporated into the adhesive film to ensure easy handling whilst cutting and positioning. TenCate EF8020 is compatible for co-cure with TenCate’s 8020 RAPI-PLY series.
