Product description

EF8020 is a modified, high strength, structural epoxy film adhesive for metal to metal or sandwich core to skin bonds. EF8020 has a strong self-filleting action in honeycomb-to-skin bonds.

TenCate EF8020 film adhesive is protected on one side by a release paper and on the other by a polyethene separator. A lightweight polyester carrier is incorporated into the adhesive film to ensure easy handling while cutting and positioning.

TenCate EF8020 is compatible for co-cure with TenCate’s 8020 prepregs and 8020 RAPI-PLY series.
