About TUBETEC composites
TUBETEC is the culmination of a challenge that inspired a solution that became a breakthough composite molding process.
For the better part of a decade, our founder, Javier Carbi and his brother, renowned architect Alberto Carbi, were challenged because there seemed to be no process to mold a curved, strong and beautiful composite tube. Their designs screamed for such a tube, be it in fiberglass or carbon fiber, but they could not find anyone who could achieve what they sought. Repeatedly, Javier and Alberto were told “not possible” or were quoted exorbitant tooling and setup costs.
So they took matters into their own hands. A decade-long effort to solve this problem resulted in the TUBETEC process, a patent-pending closed molding technique that represents a tremendous breakthrough in composite tubular molding.
Javier and all of us at the TUBETEC family are excited about how we can help premium manufacturers innovate and improve their products.
