Graphlite Data

   

GRAPHLITE CARBON FIBER SHAPES

These high performance carbon shapes are produced by packing a high volume of carbon fiber into epoxy resin under tension resulting in an unmatched tensile and compression stength.

These shapes are twice the stiffness of Aluminum.

Compared to a wet lay-up of Carbon Tow the shapes are:
350% Stronger in Tension
550% Stronger in Compression

No release agents are used in their production so the rods have excellent adhesion.
