These tubes are comprised of carbon fiber braid and unidirectional fabrics. This product is ideal for building lightweight frames and structures such as trusses. Our carbon fiber tubes have been engineered to be much stronger under torsional and side loading than pultruded tubing. They're also significantly lighter than pultruded tubing. Our carbon fiber large tubes have been designed so that the unidirectional layers are captured, eliminating longitudinal cracking and splitting. The finish on this product is different from our other product lines. These tubes show the texture of the carbon fiber braid with a wet and shiny appearance. For tubes with higher bending stiffness, see our carbon fiber roll wrapped tubing.

Users are responsible for the design and test of any structures involving DragonPlate tube and gussets and are responsible for determining the safety and suitability of these products for their own purposes. DragonPlate large carbon fiber tubes are not intended or approved for use in aircraft, and we assume no responsibility for its use and safety. See our terms & conditions for more details.

Except for pultruded tubes (diameter measured from outside), all DragonPlate tube diameters are measured from the inside of the tube (ID). To determine the approximate outside diameter, add 2x the wall thickness to the ID measurement.
Finish options include gloss, natural, textured and tooled, depending on tube type. Please see each tube type for finish options. We also offer a sanded finish upon request. Contact us for more details.
DragonPlate carbon fiber tubes are pre-cut to the specified lengths or slightly oversized. The tubes are easily cut to length using a bandsaw, coping saw, or dremmel tool. Recommended precautions include wearing safety glasses, a dust respirator, and protective clothing when cutting, sanding or drilling, to limit exposure to the dust, which is an irritant.
Yes! We can custom cut our carbon fiber tubes to your specified length. Contact us for details.
