Low CTE / ZTE Square Tubing
Near zero CTE ◾ Square profile ◾ High modulus carbon fiber ◾ Aerospace quality tubing ◾ Affordable
ZTE CarbonTM Tubes are a precision product that is commercially produced. They are an excellent choice for structures requiring high dimensional stability. Our tubes are engineered to have essentially no residual distortion (hysterisis) in elongation. Note: Tubes with unidirectional outer plies may exhibit slightly lower (more negative) CTE values. We validate the CTE performance with an in-house optical metrology system. We also offer round ZTE Carbon Tubes. Interested in custom sizes or CTE testing?

Description Of Types Of Square ZTE Tubes And Their Properties
Our square ZTE Carbon tubes offer better than 0.1 parts per million per degree Fahrenheit in multiple axes: elongation, bending and torsion. But you may have a preference on that variation. We offer two tube products to choose from engineered respectively to deliver:
|Typical Values||Unit||Plain Weave Outer||Unidirectional Outer|
Note:These CTE values listed are on average 20X lower than typical carbon laminates!
