Glass clarity and silicone on new large low iron tanks.


I got a private message asking to to see the quality of our new large low iron tanks silicone and glass. So here a a few pictures I took of a MA-821LI. No cleaning up, just removed the packaging and took the pictures.

Here is the top of the corner, focused on the silicone seam.


Here is the top corner, focused to see the clarity down through the glass.

Great stuff. Do you know how they assemble those tanks? Its hard to believe that its normal silicone. I wonder if they use that UV process that is stronger than silicone and doesn't require an inside bead to keep the water from forcing its way between the joints.

It's not normal silicone. It's a much stronger silicone made in Germany. That is how we can make our seams and silicone work so much cleaner than other brands.
