In this study, a winding process for sixteen E-fiberglass composite tube was made. Before the processing, fiber had been tested for tensile strength for E-fiberglass and carbon fiber. Nine polymer matrix laboratory scale were made and analyzed using thermal gravimetric analysis (TG), and differential scanning calorimetry (DSC). Fourteen wounded tubes were tested for burst pressure using hydrostatic test, to measure the performance winding process, matrix material, and winding angle patterns. The pattern (±45)6, 90, with resins EPN 1338 and E44, with curing agent DJ651 gives the best burst pressure, which was 11.3 MPa. The two last tubes were tested for high temperature using 85g black powder for the first tube, and 250g for the second one, producing pressure about 1.38 MPa, and 5.23 MPa for the first and the second tube respectively. Even with increasing black powder amount three times, the yielding pressure increased about 3.8 times in the second tube, while the composite tube outer temperature for the first and the second one was 48°C, and 71°C respectively, which just increased about one-half times.
