Carbon Epoxy Tube

Carbon epoxy tubes to fit common motor and parts sizes.
Low cost by comparison to custom mills and no minumum
orders. Please allow 4-6 weeks for delivery of larger sizes.

Q: How are they different? A: These tubes are wet layup
with our own prepreg with woven 3k T300 at 0 90. Woven
tubes tend to split. These don't have the toughness of woven.
Woven is suited to a motor case, our tubes to an airframe.

Customer Testimonial

The easy way to remove the cloth is to cut it and strip it lengthwise. Unrolling in sections is much more difficult and time consuming.
- Aaron Englert

That is helpful because we prefer to ship the tubes with the peel ply still on for protection during shipping.

Some other suppliers have mating parts for the custom sizes. BT-11, 15, 30, 39 are our tube and part sizes. 54mm fits into our 2.25" OD paper or fiberglass tubing. If you need custom paper or ply parts to fit, please ask.

We can slot the tubes and even make the thickness more for an "at cost" add-on.
We can make CF fins of course for a reasonable cost. We can add CF to attach points,
but the increased assembled size adds considerable shipping cost as quoted.


carbon rocket
12" diameter airframe with CF tube, FG nose cone, CF fins and AL oxidizer tank. Hmmm.
