'Roll wrapped' refers to the process used to manufacture carbon fiber tubes. The carbon fibre prepreg is first laid up around a mandrel in multiple layers. Once the reinforcement is in place it is spiral wrapped with heat-shrink tape, then put into the oven to cured. The tubes will be finished after the severals hours cured, then took off the tapes by machines, and make triming treatment
Carbon fibre tube can be used to replace or substitute aluminium or steel tubes in a wide range of projects. Their superior mechanical properties mean that tubes of the same weight as an aluminium or steel tube can be much stronger, or that tubes of the same strength can be much lighter.
Xinbo Composites manufactures high-quality carbon fiber tubes for different applications, such as automation robotics, telescoping poles, carbon fiber rollers, and UAV components, etc. Additionally, the longer length versions of these tubes have options for high and ultra high modulus carbon fiber, as well as choices for the outer surface options, such as natural 3k and UD surface, polished matte, glossy, colored carbon fiber and Kevlar hybrid, kevlar surface.
Diameter Range: 5 - 500 mm
Wall Thickness: 0.3 - 50 mm
Length Range: 5 - 6000 mm
Inner Diameter: +/-0.05mm

Roll wrapped tube is manufactured using multiple layers of prepreg carbon fiber materials. Generally, each layer is about 0.13~0.25 mm thickness which means that a tube with a wall thickness of 1.5 mm will typically be composed of 6-12 individual layers of carbon fiber. The number of layers allows us to vary the orientation of the fibers throughout the thickness, creating a highest performance product according to per client 's requirement.
Roll Wrapped Process:
1. Wrapped onto a mandrel in multiple layers and angles
2. Externally pressurized with transparant PP tape
3. Heat cured to solidify
4. After curing, the solid composite is demoulded from the mandrel as a tube
Other Customized Multiple Axial Angles
0° Fibers maximize bending stiffness.
90° Fibers maximize crushing stiffness and generally assist in overall tube strength.
45° Fibers maximize torsional stiffness.
Unlike metals which have similar properties in all directions, the properties of composites are varying, depending on the orientation of the fibers in each layer.
1. Clear Grain and Smooth Surface
2. High Strength, Light Weight
4. Low Thermal Expansivity
5. Low Density
6. Good Fatigue Resistance
7. Multiple Axial Angles can be designed to reach the best performance
