    L6X® composite medical cylinders

    Each ultra-lightweight L6X carbon composite cylinder has an inner liner made from Luxfer’s proprietary L6X aluminium alloy that is strengthened with an aerospace-grade carbon-fibre wrapping that completely surrounds the liner.

These extremely durable cylinders initially gained favor with firefighters who use them in self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA). These cylinders are now also used by paramedics and other emergency first-responders. Because of their much lighter weight, compact size, higher capacity and excellent portability, Luxfer full-wrap cylinders are becoming popular in emergency and pre-hospital care, as well as for oxygen therapy, in which reduced weight and increased filling capacity provide significant advantages to ambulatory patients.
