Hexagon Composites is a global leader in the industry with all-composite Type 4 cylinders that are the best combination of safety, efficiency, and durability available. Development and production take place at our modern facilities in the United States, Norway, and Brazil, which have a combined history second to none.
Beginning more than 50 years ago with filament-wound rocket motor cases, we’ve been producing high-pressure composite vessels before America sent a man to the moon. Our expertise was honed building for aircraft, missile, satellite, and launch vehicle programs — even the Space Shuttle. Back down on earth, we were the first manufacturer to certify an all-composite natural gas vehicle (NGV) container to the ANSI/CSA NGV2 standard. After 20 years of production, we are still the world’s largest manufacturer of Type 4 cylinders. You can find our automotive products in cars, buses, and commercial vehicles around the globe.
In 2006, Hexagon began development on the largest all-composite commercial pressure vessel in the world. The TITAN® trailer and storage module are designed for bulk transportation of large amounts of natural gas, biomethane, and hydrogen. SMARTSTORE® is Hexagon’s large capacity TUFFSHELL® cylinder storage module. This lightweight HC ISO container is easy to transport by standard trailer equipment and intermodal. You’ll find TITAN® and SMARTSTORE® in regions that are not currently served by natural gas pipelines. Industrial consumers and vehicle filling stations no longer need to wait for a real pipeline to be built before switching to natural gas.
