When aluminum oxidized, it creates a coating that prevents oxidation of deeper layers.
For steel it is easier for rust to go deeper, then chipping will start to occur until it just turns into some nasty rusted out tank.

I know they used to anodize 20oz. tanks on the MontNeel Mega-Zs to match their guns. It was soopah cool!

Plus lots of tank valves over the years. First the thermo valves in the 80s, then the Tippmann and Shraeder pin valves. Tippmann also had that QuickValve, and Smartparts had its SmartValve in the 90s.

Both JT and RAP4 sold tanks with integrated, nonstandard vavles. BRass Eagle also had those odd CamAir tanks back 25 years ago. I also remember that valves were either 5/8" or 3/4". Gradually the 5/8" became standard.

Burstdiscs used to be all rated at 1800psi, but there was huge industry backlash since improperly filled tanks meant that piles of tanks were being returned as "defective". Now all tanks have 3000psi burstdiscs, and nearly everyone underfills tanks.

Those of us old-timers remember the constant "pop---whooooosh" of the blown discs in the old days.

Plus now you have those weird JT tanks where the burst disc is threaded into the tank itself instead of the valve.

Whoa that's a weird design. Is the valve permanently attached as well? If not it looks like a pain to remove it.

It has a pair of small spanner flats below the tank threads.
