Carbon Fiber tube can be used to replace aluminium or steel tubes in a wide range of projects. The Carbon Fiber tube of the same weight as an aluminium or steel tube can be much stronger and lighter. This 10x10mm roll wrapped carbon Fiber tube is manufactured predominantly using high modulus (T700) unidirectional prepreg carbon Fiber oriented to provide maximum strength in the lateral axis.
These tubes are made of High Strength Carbon fibres and epoxy resin. The outside has a nice “twill” weave, whereby the carbon fibres are woven in different angles, which gives the tubes great strength and stiffness at minimum weight. When it comes to flexing, these carbon tubes perform much better than metal ones.
Roll wrapped carbon Fiber tubes offer superior strength in general use to ‘pultruded’ tubes (which have all their Fibers running in exactly the same direction.
The phrase ‘roll wrapped’ refers to the process used to manufacture these tubes. The prepreg carbon Fiber is first laid up around a mandrel in multiple layers. Once the reinforcement is in place it is spiral-wrapped with heat-shrink tape before the whole assembly is oven cured.
