Carbon Fiber Rods

Pultruded Carbon Rods are manufactured for maximum rigidity with minimum mass. Pultrusion orients the fibers lengthwise down the shaft for maximum structural rigidity. Carbon fiber contributes to the rigidity while minimizing weight. Carbon is 70% lighter than steel, 40% lighter than aluminum, and three times the stiffness of either for the same weight.

Carbon fiber has a negative coefficient of thermal expansion, meaning it expands as the temperature lowers. The resin matrix, on the other hand, has a positive ratio. The net result is virtually no expansion or contraction of the composite over a wide range of temperatures.

UPS Oversize Fee: UPS applies the fee to any package exceeding 48” however, they require a minimum of 2” around the product to reduce any possible damages.
