Carbon

Composite carbon tubes and carbon rods consist of long carbon fiber strands and a binding agent, such as vinylester or epoxy. The composite is heat-treated to cure the resin. Strong, durable, and lightweight, carbon rods and tubes are an ideal material for structural components. Our customers use carbon fiber rods and carbon fiber tubes in aerospace applications, cargo and surveillance blimps, aircraft wing spars, as rollers and other structural pieces in industrial machinery, as kite spars, in guitar necks, as push rods and tail booms in model airplanes and helicopters, and much more.

  • Pultruded Round Carbon Tubes

    Pultruded Round Carbon Tubes --

    Pultruded round carbon tubes are created by pulling linearly-oriented carbon fibers through a resin bath and then a series of tooling to create the specified inner and outer diameters of the tube. The carbon tube is then heated to cure it. Carbon tubes are especially stiff longitudinally, due to the unidirectional orientation of the fibers. We offer carbon fiber tubing in a variety of stock diameters from .125” to .750”.

    PLEASE NOTE: We have recently changed some of our standard stock lengths. If do not see a length that you need we can cut down a longer length for you, just ask us to do so in the comments section when placing your order. If you have any questions please give us a call at 206-632-6151.

  • Wrapped Carbon Tubes

    Wrapped Carbon Tubes --

    Wrapped round carbon tubes are created by wrapping resin pre-impregnated cloth strips around a mandrel and then curing the tube. The result is a highly specific and customizable tube that is lightweight and strong. These tubes are created in small batches, can be tapered, and have an endless variety of lengths and thicknesses. Our stock wrapped carbon tubes are available tapered or straight and are frequently used in kiting, RC hobbies, and in high-tech scientific equipment. Goodwinds can custom roll-wrap just about any carbon tube under 1 inch in diameter. We specialize in small batches, so give us a call at 206-632-6151 and tell us about your project!
  • Square Carbon Tubes

    Square Carbon Tubes --

    Much like round pultruded carbon tubes, square carbon tubes are pultruded and have longitudinally-oriented fibers. The outer profile of these tubes is square, while the inner hole is round. Square carbon tubes are a great choice if you have an application that requires a square profile but the stiffness and lightness of a carbon fiber tube.

  • Solid Round Carbon Rods

    Solid Round Carbon Rods --

    Using the same pultrusion process as our carbon tubes, carbon rods are made of unidirectionally-oriented carbon fibers and a resin. Solid carbon rods are available as small as .010” in diameter and as large as .750” in diameter.

  • Solid Flat Carbon Rods

    Solid Flat Carbon Rods --

    Solid flat carbon, like solid round carbon rods, are made of unidirectionally-oriented carbon fibers and resin and are extremely linearly strong. Also known as flat graphite bars, flat carbon rods bend easily on the flat side and are rigid on the narrow side, making them a great support or strengthening rod for any applications for which a flat, rather than round, profile is preferable. These flat carbon bars are available in a wide variety of widths and thicknesses.
