Pultruded in an epoxy resin, DragonPlate Carbon Fiber pultruded components are exceptionally straight and rigid and are an ideal building material for frames, trusses and for use as reinforcing material. They are perfect for applications of bending and pulling as the carbon fibers run the length of the component. Because tubes, rods and strips are fundamental building blocks, they find great utility in the building of high performance structures, and work well in concert with DragonPlate carbon fiber laminates. DragonPlate pultruded components are easy to work. They can be cut with a band saw, coping saw, scroll saw, end mill, or dremel tool. Because DragonPlate pultruded carbon fiber components are pultruded in an epoxy matrix they will bond readily with epoxy resins. Not recommended for applications that require torsional strength or side loads.
