This 3/8″ x 1/2″ Ultra High modulus carbon fiber tubing is fabricated with multiple layers of high strength UHM unidirectional carbon fiber prepreg and has a 3K 2×2 twill fabric on the exterior. Ultra High modulus carbon fiber is 4X stiffer than aluminum, or 1.5x stiffer than steel. UHM is more brittle than standard modulus carbon fiber tubing. This is an excellent choice for high stiffness, weight sensitive applications but not the best for demanding, high stress applications. This 3/8 ” carbon fiber tube is roll-wrapped and fabricated in-house at our US facility.
Designed For: Bending applications
Fiber Orientation: Mostly 0° plies (axial) with some 90° plies (hoop)
