0.28mm Micro Carbon Fibre Rod 1000mm

High precision pultruded carbon fibre rod measuring just 0.28mm in diameter! With such a tiny diameter this rod could be considered to be more of a control wire than a stiff rod and is suited to only the most precision scale uses such as ultra-light RC aircraft. Nonetheless, the rod is still manufactured to tight tolerances using high strength carbon fibre and an epoxy resin matrix for maximum performance.

Sold in a 1m length.

If you believe you’re buying an equivalent product cheaper elsewhere, contact us to discuss your requirements.

Due to its incredible strength and light weight, carbon fibre rod is used in a wide range of applications including aerospace and motor racing but perhaps its most common use in recreational sports equipment like kites and radio controlled models.

Our carbon fibre rod is manufactured to engineering tolerances from pultruded unidirectional carbon fibres which means that all the strength of the rods runs laterally along their length.

This listing is for a 1m (1000mm) length of the carbon fibre rod.

Typical Uses

Pultruded carbon fibre rods are suitable for use in:

  • Radio-Controlled (RC) Planes/Helicopters
  • Unmanned Air Vehicles (UAVs)
  • Stunt/Power Kites
  • Robots
  • Mechanical Control Mechanisms

How to Cut and Shape

This very thin 0.28mm carbon fibre rod can easily be cut with a pair of scissors.

Many people prefer the natural finish of these carbon products, however if you wish to paint them for your specific application then you can do so. A light key with a fine abrasive paper like a 1200 grit wet and dry paper and a thorough degrease and clean using mild detergent or an alcohol wipe should be all that is needed to prepare the surface for paint.

Generally, the pultrusions are used ‘as-is’ and don’t require painting. If you really do need/want to paint the pultrusions then a light key with a fine abrasive paper like a 1200 grit wet and dry paper and a thorough degrease and clean using mild detergent or an alcohol wipe should be all that is needed to prepare the surface for paint.

No these pultrusions are not magnetic.

No, this pultrusion is manufactured from standard modulus fibres.

We do not currently offer a custom cutting service for our tubes and pultrusions. However, they are able to be cut DIY relatively easily as you can see from our tutorial video: How to Cut Carbon Fibre Sheet, Tube and Parts

Unfortunately it is not possible to cut a usable thread into carbon fibre composites. The nature of the material is such that the teeth on a thread would not be able to take any load and would break up either during thread turning or the first attempt at using the thread.

Where it is desirable to have a threaded method of attaching the tube or rod, it is commonplace to fabricate and then bond an aluminium insert into the tube or over the rod end which can then have a thread cut into it.

In simple terms these carbon rods would work with linear bearings in that fashion. The only concern is long term durability as the carbon surface is not quite as hard as aluminium and thus would likely wear quicker in many circumstances. For low usage or low load situations this may well not be a limiting factor.

The HDT of these pultrusions is 80 °C.

Yes absolutely! If done carefully, a hacksaw can be used to cut a pultrusion. Take a look at this VIDEO where we show various methods of cutting carbon fibre.
