DragonPlate carbon tube connectors incorporate universal design, allowing the user to create extremely light-weight, light-duty structures with a large variety of angles and connections. A separate diagonal connector bonded to the end of a carbon tube can be aligned at any angle, allowing for the creation of unique and custom designed structures.
DragonPlate carbon tube connectors are designed to be used specifically with our .5" pultruded tubes. These connectors are ideal for building light weight, cost effective, and complex structures.
These patented connectors are manufactured out of carbon fiber reinforced plastic, creating an optimized cost-to-strength ratio. The connectors are designed with precision ribs to aid in controlling adhesive thicknesses. DragonPlate carbon tube connectors are designed for use with structural epoxies, specifically Scotchweld 2216. Our connectors capture the ends of the pultruded tube; this strengthens the ends of the tube and eliminates risk of splitting the carbon fiber tube.
Nylon screws and nuts are supplied to aid in the bonding process, eliminating the need for large, heavy clamps during assembly. These screws are designed for bonding purposes only, and will not contribute to the strength of the structure. Structural adhesive must be used.
Users are responsible for the design and test of any structures involving DragonPlate tube connectors and are responsible for determining the safety and suitability of these products for their own purposes. DragonPlate tubes and connectors are not intended or approved for use in aircraft, any man carrying or any other high-risk structures. DragonPlate assumes no responsibility for the use and safety of these connectors. See our terms & conditions for more details.
