Production Method: Pultrusion
CarbonWebshop’s products can be divided into three different basic types. The fiber orientation of the three types is different, resulting in different flexing and torsional performance. The choice depends on the performance you are looking for in an application. There is also a clear price difference between the three types.
Pultrusion is a continuous production process in which dry carbon fibers are pulled through a bath of epoxy resin and then through a heated core. The tube then passes through an oven to cure. The final step is cutting to lengths of up to 6m. Since no transverse fibers are used, the tube has a high stiffness in the longitudinal direction. As a result, a pultrusion tube is not suitable to take a torsional load. The outer surface is unpainted and without fabric finish.
CarbonWebshop’s pultrusion have very low thermal expansion, are chemical resistant and have a high rigidity.
- Pultrusion Profile
CarbonWebshop has its own range of carbon tubes in different diameters and wall thicknesses. We can also cut the tubes to size according to customer specifications and perform various finishing operations such as drilling and CNC milling. These finishing operations are always in mutual agreement and the costs will be specified in advance in the quotation.
