Keywords: Carbon Fiber, High Tensile, Carbon Fiber Tubes

Composite Resources is an industry-recognized leader in the business of design, development, prototyping and manufacture of standard and custom composite products for a wide variety of industries and applications, Composite Resources has the experience and in-house capacity to meet or exceed your composite needs and specifications.

One composite product that Composite Resources excels at is the production of a wide range of stock composite carbon fiber tubes. The Black Project™ line of composite tube is economically roll-wrapped with 12K 2×2 twill carbon fiber fabric providing strength and stability. The high tensile strenght composite carbon fiber tubes feature machine rolled, tape wrapped outer diameter (OD) finish; this exterior finish has the added benefit of being easily handled and gripped.  Black Project™ composite tubes are half the weight of comparably-sized aluminum tubes; other advantages include outstanding thermal resistance, superb tensile strength in addition to being lightweight. This is accomplished using a manufacturing process featuring high strength carbon fiber combined with a binding epoxy matrix.
