Product description

Amlite SC8020A is a low-density unsupported epoxy syntactic core. SC8020A offers reduced processing, a one-shot cure, the ability to anchor inserts or fastenings and increases the opportunity to consider light weight, thin walled composite sandwich structures.

Considerable cost reductions can be realised when SC8020A
replaces prepreg as the core material, and where sandwich cores below 3 mm are difficult to achieve in honeycomb core.

TenCate Amlite SC8020A is available in a variety of thicknesses, is easily contoured and shaped. SC8020A is compatible for co-cure with TenCate E720, E722 and 8020 prepregs.
