Shipping Information

This product listed to by in a range of sizes. One or more larger sizes are classed as 'oversize' for delivery to some international destinations which means that delivery might not be available to some countries or when combined with certain types of product (dangerous goods for example).

When checking the delivery cost of your order, if you receive an 'oversize' warning then you may need to select a smaller size of this product in order to continue. Alternatively, please contact us to discuss.

40mm (37mm) Woven Finish Roll Wrapped Carbon Fibre Tube

High strength roll wrapped carbon fibre tube with a glossy, woven carbon fibre finish making them a great choice for a huge range of both structural and cosmetic applications including drones, UAVs, camera rigs, automation, tripods, lightweight structures and much more.

This tube has an outside diameter (OD) of 40mm and an inside diameter (ID) of 37mm, resulting in a 1.5mm wall thickness and is manufactured using alternating layers of high strength unidirectional carbon fibre running length-ways down the tube for stiffness and at 90° around the tube to provide hoop strength and resilience to crush, burst and torsional loads. Externally the tube is finished with a smooth, UV stable clear coat showing off the classic appearance of its 2x2 twill woven carbon fibre outer layer.

Available in 1m and 2m lengths.

With the classic appearance of 2/2 twill carbon fibre coupled with 100% roll-wrapped prepreg carbon fibre construction, these remarkable tubes look as good as they perform.

The tube listed on this page has an outside diameter of 40mm and an inside diameter of 37mm meaning that it has a wall thickness of 1.5mm suitable for most standard applications for a tube of this diameter.

This large diameter tube is ideally suited to a wide range of applications such as recreational equipment, yachting (booms etc.), photography/video equipment (like camera rigs) as well as exhibition stands, lighting, modern furniture and architectural projects.

Further Information

Appearance

This 3K Woven Finish tube is manufactured from alternating layers of unidirectional prepreg carbon fibre for maximum strength with the final layer swapped for 2/2 twill, 3k woven carbon fibre so that the tube has the classic appearance of woven carbon fibre (exactly the same as our carbon fibre sheets for example). This means that although the tubes are designed for demanding mechanical applications, they also look fantastic, adding a cutting-edge carbon fibre appearance to any application.

To achieve the smooth, glossy appearance the tubes are surface ground, lacquered (with high-gloss UV resistant lacquer) and then polished. The end result is a carbon fibre tube of unrivalled visual appearance making it ideally suited for use in applications where it will be seen.

Performance

Although specially laminated, ground, lacquered and polished to produce a carbon fibre tube with a stunning appearance, our 10mm 3K carbon fibre tubes are serious tubes suitable for demanding engineering applications including robotics/automation, R/C models, UAVs, recreational equipment, motorsport and marine.

How to Cut and Shape

This carbon fibre tube 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 tube 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.

The maximum service temperature of the tubes is limited by the lacquer they have been painted to, which is no higher than about 50°C. The pre-preg itself will be fine up to 100°C. If cosmetics are not an issue, then you can sand the clear lacquer off the tubes.

The Woven Finish tubes can be used in this way no problem. The high number of fibres down the tubes length will aid general stiffness of the tube which will help for this kind of application.

We don't have figures for the torsional strength of our roll wrapped carbon fibre tubes because they're not really designed for torsional load applications. These figures would be calculable (from the layup schedule and the fibre properties) but it's very involved work. Tubes designed for torsional load, like a prop-shaft or steering column, would normally make extensive use of +/-45° (or similar) fibre orientation because 0 or 90° fibre orientation means that the torsional load would try to shear the tube. If you wanted to 'adapt' a roll wrapped tube like this to improve its torsional load capabilities then laminating some layers of our Carbon Fibre Braided Sleeve would add significant +/-45° fibre orientation and so torsional strength. Our EL2 Epoxy Laminating Resin would make a good resin to wet the braid out with and our Composites Shrink Tape could be used to consolidate the resin/braid whilst it cures.

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.

No, the maximum length available for our standard roll wrapped tubes is 2.5m. Our woven finish roll wrapped tubes are available in lengths up to 2m. Unfortunately we can't supply tubes in lengths longer than those listed on the website.

Unfortunately not. Our roll wrapped tubes are only available in the listed wall thickness and diameters.

The maximum service temperature of the Roll Wrapped Carbon Fibre tubes is 80°C.

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.

The 3k woven surface is a 200gsm fabric.
