Features of the CABKOMA Strand RodThe CABKOMA strand rod is a carbon fiber composite material consisting of a carbon fiber core and outer layer covered with inorganic fiber, into which thermoplastic resin is impregnated.
Comparison of Mechanical Strength
Rolls of CABKOMA strand rods are approx. 160m in length and 14kg in weight, which can be easily carried by hand.
Metal wire of the same strength has a weight five times more than the CABKOMA strand rod.
The strand rod on the left has almost the same strength as a reinforcing steel rod.
