Why are there no pneumatic cylinders for CO2 PSI?

    I have only found pneumatic cylinders for pressures up to 450 PSI. Why do they not make them for higher pressures?

    How were you planning to stop them at the ends of their strokes? You likewise have a problem with supplying compressed inert gas (air turns lubricants on seals into a fire/explosion hazard).
