FILAMENT WOUND tubing Hi-temp filament wound products. Resins include epoxies, vinyl esters & polyesters with glass, including round, radomes for antennas, drive shafts, fuse tubes, gas couplings, light weight rolls for paper & plastic markets, & other aerospace, military, & chemical process industries Composites filament-wound, Filament-wound (filament winding) fiberglass tubes and
fiberglass tubing provide a very high strength-to-weight ratio, excellent electrical insulation properties and high resistance to corrosion. Special resin formulations and filament winding patterns have been developed to meet
applications such as: Filament wound tubes have exceptional inter-laminar shear strength and can be machined to very close tolerances. Tubes weighing half as much and with equal strengths as similar size aluminum tubes may have 33% thinner wall thickness.
Glass/epoxy resin ratios, winding tensions, and pre-determined winding angles provide exceptional directional strength properties. Various epoxy resin formulations are available with 135°C, 155°C, 180°C, 200°C and cryogenic continuous use ratings.
Tubes can be made with ID’s as small as .187” and as large as 48” Dia. Standard lengths are 48”, 90” and 96”, depending on the ID size and some sizes can be made in longer lengths.
