RFA570 eXpress cure Adhesive Film

RFA570 is unique product which has been principally designed for use with RP570 and RP570 FR eXpress cure epoxy prepregs, as an adhesive for core bonding applications. The distinctive characteristics of this product enable it to be cured in a press in 4 minutes at 140°C, thereby speeding up the processing of honeycomb sandwich panels - with either nomex or aluminium honeycombs. The product will also cure in autoclave, with a typical curing cycle of 4 minutes once the tool temperature has stabilised at 140°C. It is fully compatible with our full range of epoxy prepreg systems.

  • Available in 150g/m2 and 300g/m2 standard weights
  • Available supported/unsupported
  • Supplied on roll form

RF Primer

Formulated as an epoxy-based composite primer/surfacing film, our new RF Primer film is fully compatible with our epoxy prepreg systems and provides a sacrificial surface that enables the constructor to eliminate paint priming. The film is laid as a first layer and then backed up with a prepreg laminate. It will fully co-cure with our epoxy prepreg formulations and will reduce the time required for surface preparation, thereby reducing cost-per-part.

Cure cycle

The standard cycle is 2°C/min, dwell at 120°C for 1 hour. The ramp rate is flexible but should be within 1-5°C/min.

  • 180g/m2 standard weight
  • Opaque Grey/Beige
