Future Technology –
Spread Tow Carbon
Ultrafine, ultralight and high strength carbon material opens new horizons for
wide variety of ideas! Extensive use of this fiber for forming robust and very
light constructions has switched modern radio controlled models to a new level
too. From now on your products will have the necessary strength having smaller
– More homogeneous than its analogues.
There are no numerous bends in rectilinear fiber.
– Unlike many other materials made of carbon fiber, in the dry form does not
stretch and crumble providing a precise cutting of even the smallest parts.
– will enable you to make the multi-layer material with any fiber direction and
thickness of the monolayer from 0.012 mm (9.5 g/m2)
Spread Tow Carbon —
It is made of TohoTenax® carbon fiber:
— high strength carbon fiber
UMS 40 — high
modulus carbon fiber

Elongation at break, %
Tenax® carbon fibers IMS series are tailored to suit applications where
strength and stiffness are of ultimate priority. To accommodate this, they are
featuring an increase in tensile strength and modulus compared to the usual high
tenacity carbon fiber type, leading to unique performances in laminates.
Sophisticated components with low wall thicknesses profit from these properties.
Tenax® carbon fiber IMS has quite wide practical application, particularly it
can be used for aerospace composite components
The high modulus
fiber Toho Tenax® UMS is a carbon fiber for meeting the requirements of
extra stiffness (elastic stiffness). Exceptional characteristics of this
material are especially suitable for constructions for space applications, such
as satellite constructions, antennas, shafts and rollers. Properties of
TohoTenax® UMS fully meet the requirements of sports goods (fishing rods, boat
masts, radio controlled models, ski sticks, etc.)
