Custom Filament Wound Tubes
InsulWynd® is our proven filament-wound, filament winding product utilizing fiberglass reinforcements in a specialized epoxy resin matrix.
Forming of the tube is accomplished by winding a band of resin-saturated rovings around a rotating mandrel. The mandrel shape forms the shape of the inside of the tube or part. The angle of winding is varied depending on where strength is needed. A steep wind angle provides hoop strength. A shallow wind angle provides axial strength and stiffness. Several layers of reinforcement, each with a different wind angle, can be put in place. Following the winding operation, the tube is heat cured, and the mandrel is extracted.
We manufacture a wide variety of tubes for OEM, military, and commercial applications. Special resin formulations and filament winding patterns have been developed to meet applications such as those listed below.
Filament-wound (filament winding) fiberglass tubes and fiberglass tubing provide a very high strength-to-weight ratio, excellent electrical insulation properties and high resistance to corrosion.

InsulWynd® E-Glass, S-Glass Waste Water Tubes
CK Composites manufactures custom filament wound corrosion and chemical resistant tubes, piping, and joints.
InsulWynd® Radome Housing
CK Composites specializes in manufacturing unique submarine radome housing for sensitive radar equipment. Our InsuWynd® Radome Housings can withstand weather, erosion, ultra-violet radiation, extreme temperatures and pressure.
InsulWynd® Chemical Waste Water Tubes
Filament wound corrosion and chemical resistant waste water pipes and tubes.
InsulWynd® Interrupter Shells, Tubes, and Chambers
Interrupter tubes in circuit breakers are a common necessity for power and electrical equipment. CK Composites can manufacture custom interrupter tubes for almost any application and quantity.
InsuWynd® Insulated Pipe Coupling
InsuWynd® reinforced insulated pipe couplings or tube connectors are manufactured for the military and gas industries. The result is high strength-to-weight ratio, insulation and high resistance to corrosion and pressure.
InsulWynd® Custom Composite Pipe
Fiberglass custom composite tubes or pipes for commercial and military applications. The filament wounds tubes can be produced in various sizes, large and small. InsulWynd® produced tubes use Kevlar and carbon fiber as reinforcement materials.
InsulWynd® Pressure Vessels
Fiberglass composite pressure vessels for fuel, gas, military and storage. The filament wounds vessels can be produced in various sizes, large and small. InsulWynd® pressure vessels use Kevlar and carbon fiber as reinforcement materials that result in high strength, low-weight systems.
CK Composite’s winding capabilities includes nine winding machines of various sizes and types. Tubes to forty feet in length and six feet in diameter can be wound. Two of the nine winding machines have computer controls which permit the winding of complex patterns and enable quick changeover from one item to another. The machine shop is well equipped and setup especially for fiberglass, with a high-capacity due collection system. Many tubes are sold with extensive machining and finishing. We can supply assemblies that incorporate several tubes, such as the betatron assembly shown below.
