Pluma® is a 7.5 kg lightweight LPG cylinder for domestic use. It comprises a pressed steel plate liner less than 1 mm thick, coated with layers of Twintex®, a continuous fibre composite, finished with a gel coat shield layer, giving it high strength and excellent safety performance. The plastic skin and full-jacket is composed of four separate parts body, base and two identical handles in injection moulding High Density Polyethylene.
