I'm not sure there is anyone hear that can decode your language. I know that I haven't got a clue what this is about.
looking for a water tank only a tank to put in line with boiler incoming water for demestic use. street pressure 60 psi so just any tank wont do
If you installed a bladder tank, if the supply water was lost, and you had a checkvalve on the inlet, you'd still have whatever was stored in there with street pressure. Course, without a pump, it would slowly decrease pressure as you used it. Most of them aren't SS, though.

A composite retention tank would not rust and would retain the full capacity of water since there is no air in them.
great stuff thanx if you know how long do thay last
On municipal water with constant pressure they should last your lifetime.

Nor do they need to be since the water doesn't touch the steel but rather is contained by the bladder.
Incorrect. The AIR is contained in the bladder and the water pressure compresses it. The tank is partially full of water when the bladder is pressurized and FULL of water when the bladder pressure drops to zero. However, we still do NOT know what he wants the tank for, because it will NOT raise the water temperature no matter what it is made of.

I do know however, that the WellMate composite tank with bladder works the way you describe but then it is composite so no rust issues.
Here is a cut away view:
