FluoroFusion Specialty Chemicals, Inc. guarantees FluoroFusion products to be free of defective material and workmanship which would affect the life and use of FluoroFusion products.  This warranty will not cover items that have been misapplied, altered, abused or improperly maintained.  To establish a reasonable warranty period against any product that fails to be superior, we will warranty defects for a period of one year from the date of manufacture.

  1. Valve Seal is intact and cylinder weighs less than full
