Braided Carbon Fiber Biaxial Sleeve - Clearance

For Precise, Repeatable, High-Strength Parts

These braided carbon biaxial sleeves feature the desirable cosmetics of a 2x2 twill pattern. They can be slid over a prepared mandrel or cylinder to create straight or tapered tubing.

Braided sleeves will completely conform to the shape of products with changing geometries like prosthetics and hockey sticks, improving overall performance, minimizing weight, and maximizing the ultimate tensile strength of carbon.

All Clearance Corner inventory is controlled and maintained through this website. Therefore, all Clearance Corner items must be ordered through this website (No phone / fax / email orders permitted). Each Clearance Corner product is available in limited quantities on a one-time, first-come-first-serve basis. The first customer to fully complete their online order will receive the Clearance Corner product. NOTE: Simply adding a Clearance Corner product to your online shopping cart will not reserve its inventory for you.

Features

  • 2x2 Twill weave for great conformability, strength and aesthetics
  • 45° Angle twill weave orientation
  • Wets out easily with resin
  • Fatigue resistance for durable strength

Tips

  • The sleeves can be increased from their base diameter up to 30% and decreased up to 70%. This means that our 2" sleeve can be used in a single application ranging from 0.6" to 2.6" in diameter.
  • When expanded, a braided reinforcement works much like a shark's body, orienting itself to the direction of force. This actually strengthens its outer skin, enabling it to withstand pressure and carry load, and to tolerate damage and fatigue. If a puncture does occur, the sleeve provides a slow, controlled failure, rather than a more damaging and potentially dangerous blowup.
  • Laying up sleeves is predictable, repeatable, and suitable for precise manufacture of composite parts. Braided sleeves are extremely resistant to cracks between layers, reducing the possibility of delaminating and increasing the strength of the product.
  • To maximize the fiber properties, use with epoxy or vinyl ester resins.
  • Polyester resin is also suitable, and is primarily used in cosmetic applications where higher strength-to-weight ratios are not a factor.

All prepackaged rolls, when ordered alone, will typically ship in a small box. Where possible, we will combine ordered items to reduce the number of boxes shipped.
Braided Carbon Biaxial Sleeve

All sleeve is sold by the linear yard, either as a prepackaged quantity or by continuous yardage.

Prepacks
Sleeve is available in pre-cut lengths that measure one yard (#2610-A, roll), three yards (#2610-B, roll), and five yards (#2610-C, roll). Each is packaged and sold separately. For your convenience, these "prepacks" can be purchased in any combination. However, if the length for any one cut of sleeve totals 10 yards or more, we suggest you purchase it in continuous, "cut to length" yardage.

Continuous, "Cut to Length" Yardage
If you know in advance that you intend to purchase 10 yards or more of sleeve, it should be ordered in continuous, "cut to length" yardage. In this case, sleeve will be cut once according to the total yardage ordered, and customers receive a price-per-yard discount as compared to prepacks.

Quantity discounts continue to deepen as the yardage increases for any one cut of sleeve.
