Special Notice -- 6351 T6 Aluminum Alloy Cylinders:
Effective June 17, 2020 Scuba Center made the decision that we will no longer fill any Aluminum Cylinder made from 6351 T6 Aluminum Alloy. These cylinders have exhibited a history of potential SCL (Sustained Load Cracking) and / or rupturing. While these cylinders have not been recalled, this decision was made by Scuba Center with the safety of our staff and customers as the utmost priority.
