GLASPAR EPOXY FIBERGLASS TUBING:
Strong, durable low cost spars. The "original" stunt kite spar. Still popular in many single line kites. Other uses include: Stage & Set Design, Amateur Radio Antennas, Medieval Weapons, and Banner Poles.  Many sizes can be interchanged and used as ferreling material for other spars.

Construction: Glaspar tubing products are an advanced multi-ply composite of continuous fiber reinforcements in an epoxy resin matrix, produced by our high technology automated filament winding process. The tubing has alternating longitudinal and circumferential layers applied by multiple winding stations. The reinforcement is pre-stressed and precision oriented to maximize physical strengths. The result is an extremely stiff and lightweight, electrically insulated composite tube of high tensile, compressive and flexural strength. All standard and non-standard sizes above have center less ground surface finish and are typically black in color. All larger diameter sizes have resin rich tape wrap surface. Please inquire for custom colors and cutting services to custom lengths.
