Share Article

Rock West Composites announces the launch of its new Marine Division a week in advance of its attendance at DEMA Show 2021 in booth #1424. Initially focusing on supplying original equipment manufacturers with composite components, Rock West will display new custom products, in addition to off-the-shelf products and materials, relevant to the marine market.

In the diving industry in particular, there is tremendous opportunity for cost efficiencies while retaining the high-quality structures and schedule adherence that original equipment manufacturers demand.

Rock West Composites (RWC) announces the launch of its new Marine Division in advance of its attendance at DEMA Show 2021, a premier trade-only event for businesses in the ocean diving and watersports markets. RWC will be in booth #1424. Targeting original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), RWC believes that its unique experience with high-performance industries and commercial markets will enable it to provide high quality products that are both cost effective and schedule sensitive, key issues that are challenging to OEMs.

RWC will be focusing on applications including carbon, glass, and hybrid composite free dive fin blades, wrapped and filament wound pole spear tubing, speargun chassis, gaffs, harpoons, technical diving backplates, and mechanical component substructures.

At DEMA Show 2021, the company will highlight a new product, a composites fin blade, which will be on display in the New Product Showcase. The materials are 100% carbon fiber, woven, uni-directional prepreg epoxy. The laminate is quasi-isotropic, strategically stepped and balanced. It has a medium- and soft-flex version available. Blade dimensions are 752mm X 210mm, and it weighs 235 grams. The attachment tendon is a 22-degree angle designed to fit most popular foot pockets. RWC fin blades are designed for high-performance continuous use conditions and are made using the highest quality carbon fiber, fiberglass, and epoxy resin systems and processes.

“We are excited about what we can contribute to this dynamic market space,” said Eric Thorstenson, General Manager of RWC’s Marine Division. “In the diving industry in particular, there is tremendous opportunity for cost efficiencies while retaining the high-quality structures and schedule adherence that original equipment manufacturers demand.”
