CO² lifejacket inflation systems are incredibly reliable but depend on the use of steel cylinders. Damp, salty, humid marine environments can quickly corrode CO² cylinders, causing them to rust if they are not cared for. Even a small build up of rust and corrosive electrolic salts can quickly get to the point where the integrity of the cylinder is compromised.
To overcome this well known risk, Spinlock has developed a unique corrosion resistant coating CRC™ that prolongs the life of their cylinders. The revolutionary coating has proved itself in salt environment testing compared to typical uncoated steel cylinders commonly used in inflatable lifejackets.
