In 1941 Luxfer produces the world’s first hot-extruded seamless aluminum cylinder. In 1958 Using its proprietary extrusion technology, Luxfer produces the world’s first cold-extruded, seamless, high-pressure aluminum cylinders. In 1976, the company introduced fiber-reinforced, hoop-wrapped composite cylinders that could be filled to even higher pressures than all-aluminum cylinders. A decade later, Luxfer added fully wrapped, ultra-lightweight composite cylinders to its worldwide product line. Over the years, these products have been progressively redesigned and improved by the use of more and more advanced alloys and materials.
