In an effort to make the “more stylish and safer composite liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) cylinders” more popular among consumers, Indane has started a campaign to text customers in the State. These cylinders weigh less than the traditional 14.2 kg domestic cylinders made of steel, and allow consumers to see the quantity of gas inside.

Sources said the composite cylinders that come in 5 kg and 10 kg variants are popular in Bengaluru’s IT hubs. The text message said: “Switch to the all-new, stylish, rust-free, 50% lighter, composite cylinder from Indane. Security deposit of ₹3,500 applicable. If you’re already an Indane domestic customer, you will only have to pay the differential deposit amount. Give a missed call to 8655677255 to apply for your composite cylinder now.”

Composite cylinders have three layers with their inner lining made of blow-moulded high-density polyethylene. The next layer is a composite of polymer-wrapped fibre glass. The outer layer is an HDPE jacket. The company launched them in March 2021.
