We have supplied a range of diameters and lengths of composite tubes to the marine industry. We can manufacture tubes using a range of different techniques and materials. Bespoke use tubes tend to be manufactured using “roll wrapping”, laying material around a male mandrel before consolidation and cure. These tubes can be manufactured from a range of materials, glass, carbon or Kevlar all of which are “pre-preg” materials which are combined with high temperature aerospace resin systems. This method normally leaves a ridged or rippled effect on the outside of the tube, with the inside have a perfect finish.
Customised Composites also have an in-house tooling facility that can manufacture high temperature tooling which can then be used to female tooling in order to have a perfect finish on the outside of the tube or object. Tubes can be achieved by laying the composite pre-preg materials into the tooling and inflating a bag inside.
