The Faber LP-Series SCUBA Cylinders are manufactured using deep-drawn chrome molybdenum steel resulting in a light weight cylinder with excellent buoyancy characteristics. Manufactured in Italy by Faber Industrie S.p.A., this 2640 PSI service pressure cylinder is imported for the North American market in an unpainted hot-dipped galvanized finish. Hot-dip galvanizing offers excellent durability and corrosion protection for steel scuba tanks. However, the hot-dipped galvanized finish is "industrial grade", with noticeable cosmetic imperfections that in no way impacts their durability or function. The inside of Faber cylinders also feature a unique phosphatized hardening treatment to create a corrosion resistant internal surface.
