Tubing for Thick Wall Applications

Norplex-Micarta, a leading manufacturer of high performance thermoset composites, introduces RT571, high strength tubing composed of a heavy weave glass fabric with an epoxy resin system. RT571 has excellent strength at elevated temperatures but has also been formulated to facilitate the production of thick walled tubes. This formulation allows for walls to be up to 2 times the ID without checks and cracks. Typical uses for RT571 include bushings, spacers, structural parts and many other applications that require parts to be fabricated from an extremely thick walled glass tube.

RT571 can be manufactured in standard lengths of 36" and 48" with inside diameters ranging from 0.750" - 35.688", outside diameters ranging from 1.00" – 36", and wall thickness ranging from 0.125" - 2.00". RT571 complies with NEMA G-10 and the MIL-I-24768/2 Type GEE. RT571 is part of a wide range of Norplex-Micarta tubing products. Norplex-Micarta offers an assortment of tubing products that meet a variety of individual application requirements.
