hollow carbon fibre tubes use a 'Roll-Wrapping'
process to produce tubing of the highest possible standard.
The unique pressure wrapping system, developed after years of exhaustive
R&D, ensures hi-tech carbon fibre
tubing of the ultimate in strength and stiffness to weight ratios.
Mandrel wrapped and
cooked in a oven at 120 degrees with a sanded finish which produces the highest
CarbonTec carbon fibre tubes offer
extremely high strength and stiffness because they contain 90%
of the fibre running
length wise and 10% at 90 deg. This gives the best
'bend strength' possible (if you try to snap the tube in half
over your knee), however it does leave
the tube venerable to forces in other planes, such as
Roll Wrap tubing has many advantages
over other methods of tube production and CarbonTec
have enhanced and developed production to make tubing lighter, stiffer and
stronger than previously possible. Pre-Preg raw materials, with strictly
controlled resin content, are the first step in consistent production.
CarbonTec's exclusive pressure rolling and wrapping
systems developed after many years of R&D, produce tube of unequalled
abrasive cut off wheel to cut the
carbon tubes and rotate the tube as it is being cut. For a clean cut wrap
the tube with masking tape before cutting and then proceed to cut through the
