WHITE PAPER:  Roll-Wrapped Composite Tubes

Roll-wrapped composite tubes offer unique characteristics that are not achieved through other construction methods.  While other ways of producing tubes are usually limited to a single design or layup throughout, roll-wrapping composite tubes give the creator a much greater level of customization with fiber orientation.
