Assorted Carbon Fiber Tubing

Carbon Fiber Tubes Deliver Increased Strength and Reduced Weight

Due to their unique properties, carbon fiber tubes are used in numerous applications over traditional materials such as aluminum, steel and titanium.

  -  High strength and stiffness with low weight   

  -  Excellent fatigue resistance 

  -  Dimensional stability: Low to Zero CTE

Types of Carbon Fiber Tubes

Standard Modulus Carbon Fiber Tubing (SM)

This is the most common grade of carbon fiber used for our carbon fiber tubes.  Standard modulus offers excellent strength and stiffness.  It is 1.5X stiffer than aluminum and is the most economical grade.

 

Intermediate Modulus Carbon Fiber Tubing (IM)

Offers enhanced stiffness over standard modulus carbon fiber tubing with the same or better strength.  Intermediate modulus is ~2X stiffer than aluminum tubing.

 

High Modulus Carbon Fiber Tubing (HM)

High modulus carbon fiber is 3X stiffer than aluminum (or equivalent to steel stiffness) and has very similar strength to standard modulus carbon fiber tubing.  This is an excellent choice for demanding, weight sensitive applications.

 

Ultra High Modulus Carbon Fiber Tubing (UHM)

Incredible stiffness at 4-5X aluminum or ~1.5X steel.  Ultra high modulus has lower strength and is not recommended for high stress applications.
