Product description

Toray MicroPly™ SC8020A is a low-density unsupported epoxy syntactic core. The material has been developed to offer a long out life and flexible cure schedules. 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.

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

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