Carbon fiber tanks
Being from the evil U.S..lol I'm having my markers and gear sent here. Would they have a fit about filling my tanks here. Whats this about a tc stamp? Would I need to get them rehydroed?! Whats the deal!? Thanks guys.

You cant get a TC stamp added as far as I know...
On all my tanks...the TC stamp is right under the DOT stamp.

to be honest it never seems like a lot of fields even look at the tanks when filling them. Buddy of mine has a nice crossfire tank, and has gotten it filled many times. I think if you actually send the tank back to the manufacturer you might be able to get a TC stamp for it, but its not really worth the cost. Your proper bet would be to sell the old tank, and invest in a new TC stamped one.
Or, get a tank cover and hope no one checks it.

If it does not already have a TC stamp you can't get one. The manufacturer may now be TC certified and stamping their tanks, but they were not certified at the time when the non TC tank was made. The TC permit requires location of manufacture as well as manufacture between specific dates. For example if that tank was made on tuesday, and the TC permit was approved wednesday that tank cannot be TC stamped by the manufacturer.
There are exemptions you can get, but they are time consuming and expensive. Only really useful for someone importing non stamped tanks and using them within their own organisation.
