Low CTE / ZTE Tubing

Low CTE / ZTE Tubing

Near zero CTE ◾ High modulus carbon fiber◾ Aerospace quality tubing◾ Low outgassing certified ◾Plain weave or unidirectional ◾ Affordable

ZTE CarbonTM Tubes are a precision product that is commercially produced. These tubes are an excellent choice for structures requiring dimensional stability. They are engineered to have essentially no residual distortion (hysterisis) in elongation, bend or twist after exposure to high or low temperatures thanks to our process in which we thermally cycle each tube nearly a dozen times from temperatures as low as -13 F to +284 F. We continually validate the CTE performance with an in-house optical metrology system. We also offer square ZTE Carbon Tubes. Interested in custom sizes or CTE testing?
