SOLAS Aluminum Duo-Prop B-Series Propellers are for Gas engines. The unique design, of the 3-Blade Propeller in the front and the 4-Blade Propeller behind, is the key to the outstanding grip in the water.
Solas Propellers are cast using state of the art squeeze casting process to make their Aluminum Propellers stronger and tougher than traditional die cast products. The squeeze cast Propeller is almost non-porous, with finer grain size than the die cast propeller. Solas Aluminum Propellers have 4 layers of paint. Using superior coatings and a high-tech painting process ensures excellent anti-corrosion performance. Solas Aluminum Propellers are exposed to over 500 hours of testing in a salt water spray tank. This testing simulates more than 6 months of normal salt water use.
NOTE: For all engines with speeds in excess of 35 knots, the Stainless Steel Type C Propeller should be used.
