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.

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.

SOLAS aluminum propellers

Aluminum propellers are made by many different companies. However, the level of quality of the propeller is determined by the company’s manufacturing policies and the access they have to cutting edge technology and high end materials. The main reason why one would want to invest in a Solas aluminum prop is that it is made using high quality metals and workmanship.

Each aluminum propeller the company makes goes through a specialized art squeeze casting process to ensure that the propeller will be stronger and tougher than other aluminum propellers on the market. Furthermore, the propellers are coated with four layers of paint and tested to ensure that they are of the highest quality.

Picking a Model

While Solas aluminum propellers are some of the best models on the market, not every single aluminum propeller made by this company is suitable for every single type of boat. A wise boat owner will check the engine of his or her boat and consider what type of sailing is to be done before choosing a propeller. Other factors to consider include the weight the boat will be expected to pull and the speed that one wishes to travel at.

Four blade aluminum props are ideal for large boats. They can pull heavy loads at an even speed and are fuel efficient. On the other hand, most recreational boats work best with a three blade propeller. Some of these are made for general use but there are others that are specifically made for speed boats and other boats that travel at a fast clip.

A boat owner would do well to measure his or her current propeller and make sure the new propeller is the same size. A propeller that is too large for the boat can potentially cause engine problems if the propeller blades touch external parts of the engine. Furthermore, an overly large propeller will not be fuel efficient.

Taking the time to choose the right boat propeller is very important. Even a well made, top of the line boat will not provide a person with smooth and comfortable sailing if it does not have the right propeller. Solas aluminum props are an ideal choice and the company provides many options to choose from. A boat owner simply needs to consider the many prop types available from the company and see which one best suits his or her boat.

The line of Solas boat propellers

Solas is a well known boat manufacturer that has been creating aluminum and stainless steel boat props for over two decades. The company offers numerous propellers to choose from, enabling any boat owner to find a suitable and affordable propeller for his or her boat. Following is an overview of the stainless steel boat Solas boat props and what each one has to offer.

Why Stainless Steel?

Boat props can be made using either aluminum or stainless steel. However, despite the fact that stainless steel propellers can be pricey, many boat owners are opting to have these installed on their boats. The main reason is that stainless steel boat props are extremely high quality. They can hold up to abrasion and/or impact without flexing or getting dented. While aluminum boat props are suitable for occasional sailing, a person who uses his or her boat on a regular basis would do well to invest in a stainless steel propeller.

What are the Options?

Solas makes five lines of stainless steel props. These are the Lexor, Scorpion, Rubex, Titon and Saturn. Most of these propellers only have three blades, although the Rubex L4, Rubex HR4 and HR Titan 4 all have four blades.

Most of the stainless steel propellers are labelled as being suitable for all around performance. This means that they are ideal for both salt water and freshwater sailing. However, a boat that is used for extensive cruising should be outfitted with the HR Titan 4, as it is specifically made to deliver a powerful thrust, smooth performance and high speed.

High performance boats should be outfitted with high performance boat props. Some good Solas boat props of this nature include the Scorpion and Titan props. These propellers also have excellent fuel economy.

While all Solas boat props are well made and good quality, some are more suitable for certain boat types than others. Before choosing a boat propeller, it is important to consider what type of sailing is to be done and the boat’s weight, among other factors. By choosing a propeller wisely, a boat owner can rest assured that the propeller will perform satisfactorily and last for many years.
