Catalina Cylinders does not endorse the practice of polishing cylinders.
Polishing methods can subject cylinders to excessive localized heating as well as removal of material from cylinder walls. Due to the physical changes as a result of polishing cylinders, all DOT and TC certificates of conformance, the manufacturing test reports, would be nullified.
Catalina Cylinders recommends that nitrous oxide cylinders be powdercoat painted in a controlled environment at our facilities at the time of manufacture.
