Frame elements in kites

The frame elements (kite stick and kite pipe) of modern kites are made of pultruded composites. Due to the high requirements, carbon fibres are usually used as base material.

Using epoxy instead of vinylesters, which are usually used, results in a product with superb mechanical properties.

Carbon profiles are also often used as stiffening frame elements or ribs in flags, banners, wind turbines, wind chimes, wind mobiles and small wind mills. Carbon rods, tubes and rectangular profiles are used most often in this sector.
