C-T Carbon tube
Manufactured by C-Tech® (www.carbon-tube.com)
Parallel and tapered tube
C-Tech produce a range of parallel or tapered carbon fibre tube with the following profiles:
A mandrel wrapped system is used for our carbon tube production, with laminates laid up on male mandrels. The mandrel is then shrink wrapped before the laminate is heat cured. This produces a glossy black spiral wound finish. Other finishes can also be provided. Bigger sizes are available in custom moulded tube.
C-Tech can provide mandrel-wrapped carbon or carbon/S-Glass tube in sizes from 5mm ID to 200mm ID. Standard carbon tube products are made from T700 standard modulus pre preg. On request we manufacture tube in high modulus carbon fibre.
Although C-Tech specialise in mandrel wrapped tube custom orders may be placed for female moulded tube. CNC mould manufacturing services are available on request. Laminates can be varied to increase hoop strength or longitudinal strength. Custom reinforcement for attachments can be built into the laminate, and tapered laminates are also available.
C-Tech tube can be delivered world-wide using the following methods:- Courier (DHL/Fedex under 3m)
- Air freight
