CST has produced carbon fibre shaft tubing for manufacturing of oars for surf boats as well as rowing sculls.
Our shafts are filament wound using a high temperature epoxy resin combined with aerospace grade carbon fiber to create a tough, stiff and light section.
Filament winding is a fully automated and computer-controlled process in which resin impregnated fibers are wrapped in a geometric pattern over a rotating male mandrel. This process produces considerable advantages over conventional hand-laid and fabric wrapped pre-preg techniques. Resulting tubes have precise fiber orientations, high fiber-to-resin ratios, straight uncrimped fiber paths and excellent consistency.
All tubes are post cured under high temperature and pressure, to ensure the highest quality laminate.
This means every CST shaft will respond, feel and weigh the same, ensuring excellent performance time after time.
