These braided carbon biaxial sleeves have the cosmetically desirable appearance of a 2x2 Twill pattern but as a sleeve, they can be slid over a prepared mandrel or tube to create straight or tapered tubing. The sleeves can be increased from their base diameter up to 30% and decreased up to 70%. This means that a 2" diameter can be used in a single application ranging from 2.23" diameter down to 0.76". Laying up sleeves is predictable, repeatable and suitable for precise manufacture of composite parts. 3K AeroSpace 7.5 oz per sq yard.
Tensile Strength is the maximum stress that a material can withstand while being stretched or pulled before failing or breaking.
Elastic modulus is a number that measures an object or substance's resistance to being deformed elastically (i.e., non-permanently) when a force is applied to it. A stiffer material will have a higher elastic modulus.
