BRAIDED CARBON FIBER TUBES

Braided Carbon Fiber Tubes

Pullbraided Tubing

These tubes are comprised of carbon fiber braid and unidirectional fabrics. This product is ideal for building lightweight frames and structures such as trusses. Our carbon fiber tubes have been engineered to be much stronger under torsional and side loading than pultruded tubing. They're also significantly lighter than pultruded tubing. Our carbon fiber large tubes have been designed so that the unidirectional layers are captured, eliminating longitudinal cracking and splitting. The finish on this product is different from our other product lines. These tubes show the texture of the carbon fiber braid with a wet and shiny appearance. For tubes with higher bending stiffness, see our carbon fiber roll wrapped tubing.

  • Carbon Fiber Tube Splices

    Now you can create custom length tubes! These splices join our carbon fiber large tubes to create any length you need. Made of multiple layers of carbon fiber, these splices fit on the inside of our large tubes using a structural adhesive we recommend ScotchWeld 2216 epoxy adhesive. These splices are not designed for slip-fit use. The splice must be bonded to both tubes with a structural adhesive for proper joint strength.

  • ECONOMYTUBE™ BRAIDED...

    Comprised solely of carbon fiber braid fabrics our economy square tube is ideal for building light weight frames and structures such as trusses. Engineered to be much stronger under torsional and side loading than pultruded tubing

  • AXIALLY OPTIMIZED...

    Carbon Makers axially optimized carbon fiber braided tubes are a high strength, high stiffness extension of our standard braided tube line of products. Combining the best qualities of our standard braided tubes with the rigidity of roll-wrapped uni-directional tubing, the axially optimized braided tubes have a high angle braid and additional uni-directional carbon fiber for maximum bending stiffness, yet maintain the torsional rigidity and robustness that make Carbon Makers braided tubes an excellent option for many applications. These tubes are specifically made for maximum strength when used with our patent pending modular connector systems to construct disassemblable frames and other structures. And the beautiful braided gloss finish is distinctively unique amongst carbon fiber tubes. Wall thickness is approximately .060". UV resistant.

  • ECONOMYTUBE™ BRAIDED...

    CarbonMakers EconomyTube™ is done in the UK by our qualified technicians

    Carbon Makers all-braided Carbon/Kevlar tube is a hybrid component that trades off much of the stiffness of the carbon fiber for the aesthetics of a carbon/Kevlar blend. Comprising 50% carbon fiber and 50% Kevlar both evenly distributed, this tube provides a lightweight solution to achieve the look of carbon/Kevlar braid. The standard braided tube or twill roll-wrapped tube with carbon/Kevlar face ply are recommended if the carbon/Kevlar look is desired, but greater rigidity and strength are required.

    Also see other Kevlar Composites we manufacture.

  • HIGH MODULUS BRAIDED...

    Carbon Makers high modulus braided tubes utilize a combination of high modulus uni-directional carbon fiber for axial and bending stiffness and standard modulus braided carbon fiber for torsional rigidity and crush strength. High modulus braided tubes are substantially stiffer than our standard braided tubes, and thus are appropriate when maximum rigidity and minimum weight are required.

    These tubes are available in both high modulus and ultra high modulus fiber. High modulus tubes are made to order and therefore are not returnable.

    Custom wall thicknesses and layup schedules are available upon request.

  • BRAIDED KEVLAR ROUND...

    Comprised of 100% Kevlar, these braided tubes are a good choice for those who require a tube with a higher impact resistance than that of carbon fiber. Can also be used for those applications that require a tube with low electrical conductivity.

     

    Wall thickness is approximately 0.03". Contact us for a quote on additional wall thicknesses.

    Please allow 10-15 days before this product ships.

  • BRAIDED CARBON/KEVLAR...

    Carbon Makers braided tube with carbon/Kevlar face ply has the same construction as the standard braided tube, but with the outer braided material comprising a hybrid carbon/Kevlar blend. This tube maintains most of the rigidity and strength of the standard all carbon fiber braided tube, but with the aesthetic look of carbon/Kevlar. If additional rigidity and strength are required, the twill roll-wrapped tube with carbon/Kevlar face ply is recommended. These tubes can also be used with our Modular Tube Connecting System to easily create complex structures.

    Nearly all of our current carbon fiber braided tubes can be made with the Carbon/Kevlar braid, or even optimized further with a fully customized laminate schedule including both standard and high modulus carbon fiber with the Carbon/Kevlar braid as the outer layer. Call for details.
