The full CFRP struts developed by Space Structures are a true innovation and World First. They are manufactured as an integral single CFRP piece including the fittings!
Full CFRP. including the interfaces
• Maximum ultra-lightweight. up to 80 % mass saving depending on length and application
• Dimensionally stable. No thermal expansion, insensitive to thermal cycling. Special DoubleZeroTM variant with zero CTE and CME. CTE can also be customized.
• Reduction of a number of parts. By integration of attachment brackets into strut design
