Product description

8020 Rapi-Ply toughened epoxy prepregs achieve excellent quality laminates from vacuum bag only (VBO) / out-of-autoclave (OOA) processing.

TenCate 8020 resin is a new generation of toughened epoxy resin systems offering an excellent balance of mechanical properties. The TenCate 8020 resin system has been developed to offer long outlife, flexible cure schedules and high flow characteristics to ensure the fiber is fully impregnated during the component manufacture process.
