Features & Benefits
Roll wrapped tubing is manufactured using multiple layers of prepreg carbon fiber (and if noted, other) materials. In general each layer is about 0.006 inches thick which means that a tube with a wall thickness of 0.060 inches will typically be composed of 9-10 individual layers of carbon fiber. The number of layers (plys) allows us to vary the orientation of the fibers throughout the thickness, creating a high performance, engineered product.

We cannot supply any "CURED" theoretical data at this time. Please refer to the material data sheets below for fiber and the resin specification sheets. That is the only data we can supply at this time.
Carbon Fiber Specification Sheets
- Standard Modulus - 35msi - TR50S Fiber (used in our 14002-D pre preg)
Resin System Specification Sheets
The common resin systems used in our pre preg processes is Newport 301 (used in the following products; 14033-D Carbon Twill, 14002-D Unidirectional, 14015-D Fiberglass Scrim & 14035-D Silver Texalium)

- 0° Fibers maximize bending stiffness. Consider bending the tube over your knee.
- 45° Fibers maximize torsional stiffness. Typically plied together in an opposing manner, i.e. ±45°. Consider twisting the tube like a vehicle's driveshaft.
- 90° Fibers maximize crushing stiffness and generally assist in overall tube strength. Consider laying the tube on the ground and stepping on it.
