PRE-GLASSED PHENOLIC AIRFRAMES NOW AVAILABLE!

PML now offers a fiber glassing service for our phenolic body tubing. All tubing except 11.4" dia. is vacuum bagged. The fiber glassing service leaves the tubes with a smooth finish, ready for priming and painting with little if any prep work required. This pre-glassed tubing is perfect for super-heavy duty flights that will reach 0.85 Mach or greater, your L3 project, or also is just nice to have so you don't have to fill the spiral grooves! If you're scratch building, see below for pricing for us to slot the glassed tubing for you. Also, any of our kits in these sizes can be "upgraded" to ship to you with pre-glassed tubing, all slotted and ready to go. Call PML at 810-468-1748 M-F 9-5pm EST for pricing details.

The Quantum Tube (QT), is made from a special blended polymer that is extremely durable and easy to use. You will find this new material easy to work with and very forgiving. Most hobby type epoxies and paints will readily adhere to this material as well. The Quantum Tube can be squeezed, dropped, or even thrown and will not suffer any damage as can sometimes occur to cardboard or phenolic tube. The Quantum Tubes are molded in medium gray and have a glass smooth finish. The Quantum Tube does have one thing missing, the spiral groove! You will appreciate the fact that you no longer have to fill and sand the airframes to achieve the perfect finish.

All PML kits in the 2.1”-3.9” diameter range (except Nimbus) now ship standard with Quantum Tubing. These kits are all available with phenolic airframes on request; the price is the same.

Some customers have thought that QT is a replacement for ‘glassed phenolic. This is not the case. Quantum Tubing is not intended for super-high-stress applications. It is intended as a replacement for standard phenolic for sport rockets. QT makes it easier and faster for flyers to achieve a nice finish, and to eliminate some of the problems of plain phenolic in high-impact situations like landing on rocks, cold-weather flying, etc. ‘Glass-wrapped phenolic is still the best product for high stress flights. 

Our phenolic tubes for airframes and motor mounts are the nationally renowned Kraft phenolic tubes that are sold exclusively by Public Missiles, Ltd. Over FIVE times the compression strength of cardboard at a fraction of the cost of fiberglass. (And it won't make you itch!) Easy to work with and can be finished glass smooth.
