Item details

Carbon Fiber Cord/String, Approx 0.5 mm OD x Approx 64" Long. Please note this is shorter than 9 feet.

This is a braided carbon fiber cord or string. It's not a tube or sleeve like much of my carbon fiber is. It's quite thin at about 1/2 mm diameter. It would be used for miniature parts. It's usually used with epoxy (which is stronger than unsaturated polyester resin) for making composite items.
One way of using this is to insert a wire into one end and apply a little cyanacrylate so the wire is attached firmly, then dunk it into a cup of resin to wet it thoroughly and pull it into a piece of heat shrink tubing that has been injected with a little bit of resin, then drape it into a "U" shape, and apply heat with a heat gun starting at the bottom of the "U", and working your way both sides, shrinking the tubing, which pushes excess resin out the ends (leave enough empty space in the heat shrink tube to contain excess resin). Crimp off both ends to prevent resin from leaking out. Before the resin cures you can then stretch, drape, or wrap the flexible assembly around a form and leave it that way until the resin cures. If you use carbon sleeving you can insert an aluminum (or other light weight material like wax) wire, tube, or cable into the sleeving and repeat the above operation. The inner core allows you form any curve that will hold its shape while the resin cures. If you used a wax core, you can melt it out when the resin cures. There are many variations on that basic idea.
Different suppliers will specify the "diameter" in different ways because this can be adjusted to fit a larger or a smaller insert, just by pushing it together to make a larger diameter or pulling it to make a smaller diameter. A little like buying cloths, the same size from different brands may fit differently. I decided to size this myself and from a measurement of the OD rather than the ID, so there may be conflicting info on the printed label and the handwritten notes.-
