In 1985, Dr. Solas Y. J. Lin set out to create a company that could make world-class components for boats and personal water crafts with a focus on propellers and impellers. A talented design team was recruited and the manufacturing plant was built to the strictest standards. After almost thirty years, SOLAS propellers have exceeded all expectations and the name is now among the most recognized brands in the industry. The headquarters in Taiwan serves as the heart of the operations which handles research and development, personnel training, material sourcing, and advanced manufacturing. The location enables it to function in a very cost-effective manner while still adhering to the relentless pursuit of quality that has made the brand famous the world over.

Stainless Steel Propellers

SOLAS produces precision cut stainless steel propellers. They have all gone through a rigorous process of design and testing to perfect every single element before they go into mass production. Designers use the latest CAD technologies to leave no room for error while field testers subject the prototypes to a sequence of assessments to iron out any flaw. Customers can be confident that their exact specifications will always be met down to the smallest detail.

The company doesn't cut corners when it comes to materials. SOLAS prides itself with using high grade metal for its range of products. The stainless steel propellers, for instance, contain the largest percentage of molybdenum, nickel and chromium in the whole industry - yet another proof of the commitment to excellence. This purposeful blend of metals makes the propellers in this series incredibly resistant to rust despite constant exposure to saltwater and allows the blades to run in a more stable manner. The durability of these propellers is second to none.

The stainless steel propellers are made through an investment casting process. This tried and tested method has several benefits including an impressive degree of accuracy, ease of repeatability, versatility, and component integrity when dealing with various metals and alloys. While it is more expensive than die casting, it allows the company to generate complex shapes that would otherwise be impossible and thus lets creativity to flourish.

There is a constant push to improve manufacturing processes for SOLAS propellers whether it's with increasing the yield, using better automated equipment, boosting the efficiency of space utilization, or ensuring that inventories are never stale. As such, customers will be able to expect adherence to manufacturing deadlines, product delivery commitments, and quality standards. Examples of the stainless steel propellers include the Titan, the Lexor, the Saturn, the Scorpion, and the Rubex L3, L4, NS3, and HR4.

Aluminum Propellers

SOLAS aluminum propellers, on the other hand, are produced using the advanced squeeze casting process. To understand why this is important, it is best to describe the difference between it and the most commonly used method. Die casting is usually accomplished by pressing two dies before the hot metal is poured in. In contrast, squeeze casting involves having molten metal poured into the bottom die before the upper die squeezes things down. Only after the metal has cooled and taken the desired shape will the upper die be lifted. The advantages of this method include greater strength, less metallic shrinking, and better grain compared to traditional die cast.

To the naked eye, there is no discernable difference between squeeze cast and die cast propellers. However, using a powerful microscope and setting it to 400x magnification will clearly show that the former has finer grains that are nearly impenetrable while the latter has larger grains and glaring holes. The solid microstructure of SOLAS aluminum propellers is one of the reasons why they are among the toughest and most durable products in this class.

As an additional precaution against corrosion, SOLAS propellers are treated with up to 4 layers of performance paint through a sophisticated process that ensures even coating and 100% surface area coverage. Quality control sees these propellers being subjected to more than 500 hours of abuse by a salt water spray tank, an equivalent to over half a year of regular exposure to salt water in normal conditions. Examples of these propellers include the Rubex 3 and 4, the Amita 3 and 4, the High Thrust Propeller, and the Aluminum Bravo Two.

All about Solas Propellers

Located in Taiwan, Solas Propellers was established by Dr. Solas Y. J. Lin in 1985. As a boy in Chaung Hua, Lin became fascinated by the ships passing by in the nearby shipping lanes, and how different designs affected their performance. A growing interest soon turned into a vocation, and he went on to study Naval Architecture at Taiwan University.

Solas Propellers is now one of the most highly acclaimed names in the watercraft propulsion industry, making its reputation on the craftwork and superior design ability of its technical team, plus a sound understanding of its customer base and their needs. The company places a huge emphasis on design, realizing that small gains in performance are rewarded many times over in cost savings, increased sales, and, most importantly, customer satisfaction.

The management philosophy of the company is a holistic one, based on a positive approach to life and transforming that attitude into the goal of producing superior products and customer service. Solas Propellers maintain a Total Quality Control process, enabling strong quality control throughout the whole manufacturing process, while remaining close to their customers. This process ensures a positive result for all involved in product development, from design and manufacture, through to customers and other industry stakeholders.

It is not surprising that the company name involves a variation of the Latin word for the sun, the source of all energy. The company’s full name is actually Solas Science & Engineering Ltd, so it is to be expected they are at the forefront of design and performance in the propulsion industry. It is not enough for a business to operate with glossy brochures and a state of the art website. The products have to back up the hype with performance and customer satisfaction.

The company has agencies and dealers throughout Asia, Europe and America. Their website enables online purchase and delivery options, and a map facility helps customers find a dealership handy to their location so purchasers can deal with someone local, if they prefer this. There is a strong emphasis on customer service, so that purchasers are happy with their purchase, and will likely become repeat buyers and recommend the company to others. Solas Propellers also look at their dealers as customers, knowing that resellers need to believe in the company’s goals to actively promote and sell Solas products.

For all who experience and enjoy life at sea, whether for a living or the weekend hobbyist, propulsion is all important. Knowledge of fluid dynamics and propulsion design is vital, and Solas Propellers expertise in these areas remains unchallenged.

SOLAS boat propellers

Solas is one of the best known boat propeller manufacturers in the world. The company was founded in 1985 by Dr. Solas Lin and specializes in making both outboard and stern drive propellers and impellers. While the company has many different props to choose from, each product line is made after specialized research and only high quality materials are used. The company is based out of Taiwan but sells boat props all over the world.

Solas Props – What are the Options?

Solas Props are made from either stainless steel or aluminum. Both materials are high quality, although each type of metal has its own advantages and disadvantages. Being aware of the pros and cons of each material type will help a boat owner choose the most suitable prop type.

Aluminum propellers are the most common, as they are affordable, suitable for most boat types and easy to repair. They are also nearly non-porous and lightweight. However, aluminum props are not suitable for boats that are used in sandy situations and they tend to flex under high RPMs.

Stainless steel propellers are quite expensive, but are well worth the cost. Solas has recently made a new line of stainless steel propellers that are guaranteed to never rust under any circumstances. These propellers can hold up to a lot of wear and tear, as the blades do not flex under pressure. The only downside to purchasing a stainless steel boat propeller is that it will be costly to repair.

Aluminum and stainless steel propellers can have either three or four blades. Three blade propellers are ideal for most recreational boats, as they offer a high top end speed and there are many pitch and style options to choose from. On the other hand, four blade props are most suitable for high performance boats, as they have good holding power for ocean sailing as well as better low speed handling than three blade propellers.

Buying a good vessel is not enough. It is imperative to take the time to choose the right propeller for the boat. Solas props are an excellent choice, as they are well made and guaranteed to be high quality. Even so, one should take the time to consider the options and make sure the material and blade type are suitable for the type of sailing that is to be done.

SOLAS Aluminum Propellers

Boaters like to know that when they go out onto the water, their boats and equipment will work properly without the danger of breakage or other failures. Every experienced boater runs through a checklist before launching, and if something is not right, the boat stays dry until it is corrected. To ensure more time on the water and less time engaged in repairs or replacement, many boaters have simplified their lives by installing Solas propellers. The Solas Aluminum Propeller is one of the top choices among serious boaters and mariners around the world because it is durable, reliable and highly dependable.

Solas was founded in 1986, and it exists today as one of the most trusted names in the world of boating and boating equipment. The company focuses on propellers for outboard and stern drive motors, and many boaters use the company’s products exclusively. The propellers made by Solas are engineered to be the finest in the water, and this is why so many boaters trust the brand. Although the company manufactures many types of propellers, the Solas Aluminum propeller is one of its most popular for a variety of reasons.

The Solas Aluminum propeller has been built with reliability and precision in mind. The revolutionary squeeze cast process that Solas uses in the manufacture of these propellers ensures that they are stronger than those made using traditional die cast processes. In fact, the squeeze casting process produces a propeller that is almost completely non porous, resulting in a much more durable unit. The aluminum propellers made by Solas are also coated with four layers of paint for maximum resistance to corrosion. Additionally, the propellers are exposed to over 500 hours of salt water spray testing in a specially-designed tank to ensure that they can handle the abuse of working with salty sea water.

There are many propellers on the market, but the Solas Aluminum Propeller is the choice of many expert boaters. It is durable and dependable, and it is built to last. For these reasons and more, boaters choose the Solas product. It ensures excellent operation and more time spent in the water where boats belong.
