SILCA has developed a proprietary impact resistant helmet for the cartridges. Research showed that the number 1 and number 2 cause of CO2 regulator failure are damage to the gasket which seals to the cartridge and destruction of the threads in the regulator. Both of these failure modes are caused by using a cartridge with damaged threads. SILCA Impact Helmets guarantee perfect, clean threads when you need to use the cartridge, while also allowing the threads to be lubricated with a high-viscosity silicone grease. The grease ensures smooth assembly and an airtight seal once the cartridge is punctured.
Impact helmets also protect cartridges from damage or puncture in seat bags and toolboxes.
