Pultruded carbon fibre micro tube manufactured from 100% unidirectional carbon fibre.

The tube has an outer diameter (OD) of 1.0mm and a wall thickness of just 0.25mm leaving an inner diameter (ID) of 0.5mm.

Our new range of micro pultrusions include the smallest diameter commercially pultruded tube available anywhere in the world.

Designed for indoor flyers, nanorobotics, scientific and educational use, and a range of other small scale engineering challenges, these ultra-small carbon fibre pultrusions represent the pinnacle in pultrusion technology.

Further Information

How to Cut and Shape

These ultra small carbon fibre tubes are quite delicate and are best cut by folding a piece of medium grit (around 400) wet-and-dry paper over on itself and carefully using the folded edge of the paper as a very fine file.

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.
