Carbon fiber offers
the best weight to
strength/stiffness
ratio, and optimal
thermal stability.
However, many
applications may
find phenolic tubes
quite adequate and
offer a very
economical
alternative over
carbon fiber. We
offer phenolic tubes
with or without
fiberglass wrap.

selection of phenolic
tubes, go to
