Dragonplate axially optimized carbon fiber braided tubes are a high strength, high stiffness extension of our standard braided tube line of products. Combining the best qualities of our standard braided tubes with the rigidity of roll-wrapped uni-directional tubing, the axially optimized braided tubes have a high angle braid and additional uni-directional carbon fiber for maximum bending stiffness, yet maintain the torsional rigidity and robustness that make Dragonplate braided tubes an excellent option for many applications.
As part of a marketing campaign for Kiehl's (a high-end cosmetics brand), Dave Slurz of Night Agency in New York chose
DragonPlate Modular Tube Connectors to build a "spacecraft" to fly a new face moisturizer into space. The new "space moisturizer" uses a material called Aerolite, developed by NASA to insulate spacecraft. DragonPlate Modular Connectors and carbon fiber tubes were chosen for this project because of their lightweight properties and ease of use.
