Carbon-fiber tubes are an easy way to add strength and flexibility to your model. Tubes are lighter (and stiffer) than rods of the same size. These are “pultruded” tubes.
The wall thickness is the difference between the Outer Diameter and Inner Diameter divided by two. For example, the 7×5 tube has a nominal wall thickness of 1mm. Some of the tubes have thinner walls, these are marked “TW”.
The size shown is the nominal inside and outside diameter. The precision varies and you may or may not be able to insert rods into the tubes.
All of these products are 1 meter in length (39.37 inches). They may be cut with a high-speed “cut-off” wheel (the smaller rods can be scored with a knife and broken). You can use virtually any adhesive on them (Foam-Tac works great), for best results roughen the surface a bit with sandpaper.
Shipping is in a cardboard mailing tube – please note that its almost always more economical to order several pieces (mixed sizes and types) because ALL of them will fit into one mailing tube.
Our CF products are made in China.
