Create 0.5" Carbon Fiber Pultruded Tube Structures
Why is Carbon Fiber ideal for building structures? The benefit of carbon fiber over conventional structural materials is the high strength and high stiffness to weight ratios.
Dragonplate has developed multiple methods for building carbon fiber structures. One method is to use our 0.5” round pultruded tubing. This method allows for customizable structures, with varying heights, widths, depths, cell sizes, and lengths to meet your specific design criteria.
Trusses assembled from our 0.5" tubing connectors provide a cost effective method of manufacture and an extremely stiff lightweight structure. Trusses built from our 0.5" pultruded tubing connectors should be considered light duty and should not be used in aircraft, man carrying or other high risk structures.
Using our quick-release connectors you are also able to create carbon fiber structures that can be disassembled for transport and then easily reassembled.
We recommend Scotch-Weld 2216 adhesive for bonding these connectors to the carbon fiber tubes.
Truss structures can be used for wide variety of applications. They are used primarily for Structural applications. But did you know that that truss structures can also be beautiful? Using DragonPlate truss materials, it is possible to create complex frames for many different uses such as furniture.
Weighing in at only 13.5 pounds, the truss below shows the strength and stiffeness possible using our carbon fiber tubes and connectors. The truss shown is supporting a 500 pound cantilever load!
