Airframes

"We offer several exclusive airframe materials including Quantum Tube, Kraft Phenolic, and 'Glass Wrapped Phenolic."

Quantum Tube Airframe
.
PML QUANTUM TUBE AIRFRAME!
,
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.
KRAFT PHENOLIC AIRFRAME and MOTOR MOUNT TUBING
.
Phenolic tubes
.
Our phenolic tubes (PT) 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.
Motor mount tubes are identical to the airframe tubing.
PRE-GLASSED PHENOLIC AIRFRAMES
.
Glass Wrapped Phenolic Airframes
.PML offers a fiberglassing service for our phenolic airframe tubing (FGPT). All tubing is compression wrapped, heat cured, filled, and sanded. The fiberglassing service leaves the tubes with a smooth finish, ready for priming and painting with little 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 just to make your rocket very durable!
