Notes:

  1. Scientific grade
  2. CFRP tubes as spacer (open design)
  3. CFRP ribs as spacer
  4. Coefficient of Thermal Expansion (CTE) in plane of board, 10E-6 mm/mm∙K
    (measured value for plane plate of CFRP @ 273 K)
  5. Coefficient of Thermal Expansion (CTE) perpendicular to plane, 10E-6 mm/mm∙K
    (measured value for CFRP tube in axial direction @ 273 K)

CarbonVision® designs and manufactures high precision breadboards, benches and structural parts made from CFRP.
