Details

Carbon round tube, 1 mm wall thickness, 80 grams/metre, 1000 mm long. Made from high strength carbon with about 50% of the stiffness of high modulus carbon. This tube was intended for use as the lower section of a mast for an A Class where 16 mm and 14 mm will be used for the upper sections. But we have revised the thickness of our 16 mm tubes upwards to 16.5 mm so this is no longer possible without some extra work. Used in this way it will provide a light but sturdy mast with higher stiffness higher up suitable for heavier and more stable A Class designs. The stiffness is actually less than for our 16.5 mm tube and this is because this tube is made of normal carbon rather than high modulus carbon.

Graphs of 'Stiffness of mast spar material against diameter' and 'Stiffness of mast spar material against weight/metre' are shown in the thumbnail sketches. The suitability of any SAILSetc mast spar material for its intended application can be checked using the graphs shown in the FAQs section - link.
