About Hexagon Lincoln LLC.:
50 years fabricating advanced filament-wound composites

Hexagon Lincoln has been making filament-wound fuel tanks since before America sent a man to the moon. Our heritage began in 1963 with filament-wound rocket motor cases. Soon after we expanded into high-pressure composite vessels for aircraft, missile, satellite, and launch vehicle programs. This experience made us a logical choice when NASA needed lightweight vessels for its manned missions. In fact, many of the components and pressure vessels on the Space Shuttle were built by us.

Since then we’ve had many different names: Brunswick, General Dynamics, Lincoln Composites, Hexagon Lincoln. We have been a member of the Hexagon Composites Group of companies since 2005. The Group develops and supplies composite cylinders for storage and transportation of liquefied petroleum gas, compressed natural gas, biomethane, compressed hydrogen gas, and other industrial gases.

Over the years we have designed and developed over 80 configurations of high-performance, filament-wound pressure vessels, using liners of aluminum, steel, titanium, Inconel®, plastic, and rubber with structural laminates using a variety of fiber and resin combinations. Our products have also been used for aircraft emergency power, ejection systems, Skylab oxygen tanks, life raft inflation and breathing cylinders.

In 2006, Hexagon Lincoln began development on the largest all-composite commercial pressure vessel in the world. The TITAN® cylinder and storage module was designed specifically for bulk transportation of large amounts of compressed natural gas. You’ll find TITAN® and SMARTSTORE® in regions that are not currently served by natural gas pipelines. They are approved and widely used in the United States, Canada, Mexico, Peru, Dominican Republic, Australia, Indonesia, Thailand, Malaysia, Vietnam, Europe and Russia.
