2mm Carbon Fibre Rod

High precision pultruded carbon fibre rod measuring 2mm in diameter. Small diameter rod like this is very easy to bend in longer lengths but in shorter lengths can offer reasonable stiffness, suitable for a range of lightweight applications in model-making, radio control and UAVs, as well as some creative uses. The rod is manufactured to tight tolerances using high strength carbon fibre and an epoxy resin matrix for maximum performance.

The rod is available in 1m and 2m lengths.

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 unidirection carbon fibres which means that all the strength of the rods runs laterally along their length.

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 Buy

Our rods are available in a 1m or 2m length. Please choose the length you require from the drop-down list.

Volume discounts are available for large orders. Please contact us for pricing. We can also supply wholesale quantities to model shops, manufacturers or resellers. Please contact us for more information.

Further Information

Available Diameters

The carbon fibre rod on this page has a diameter of 2mm (0.08"). At Easy Composites we also carry carbon fibre rods in diameters of 0.5mm (0.02") to 12mm (1/2").

How to Cut and Shape

This carbon fibre rod can easily be cut and finished using simple workshop tools like a hacksaw and some wet-and-dry paper. Cutting and finishing a carbon fibre rod can also be perfectly safe if you follow some basic safety precautions.

For a comprehensive guide to both safety advice and cutting and finishing techniques watch our video guide to cutting and shaping carbon fibre sheet and carbon fibre parts.

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.

The diameter has a tolerance of +/-0.1mm.
