‘Luxfer’s first products were glass prism tiles used to direct sunlight into dark interior spaces. The tiles were invented and patented in the USA by Luxfer founder James Pennycuick.’

Luxfer developed the world’s first aluminum SCUBA cylinder in collaboration with the famous underwater explorer Jacques-Yves Cousteau. Be the next legend.
Luxfer SCUBA cylinders are cycle-tested in excess of 100,000 cycles at service pressure. Minimum burst pressure is tested to 2.5 times service pressure without failure.
(Luxfer does not require or recommend eddy-current )
( Underwater use of Luxfer full-wrap Type 3 carbon composite cylinders )
(Differences among the terms oxygen service - oxygen mixture - nitrox - enriched-air nitrox EAN - oxygen-enriched air)
(Should I be doing anything different for my aluminum alloy 6061 composite cylinders than I have done in the past?)
(Are special coatings needed to protect aluminum cylinder interiors from tap water?)
(Will my aluminum-lined composite cylinder have a shortened life from being hydrostatically tested with tap water?)
