Magblade Propellor Firm Aims to Take Propulsion to New Levels

#magblade – Leading Irish marine supplier Nick Bendon, well known to readers through his CH Marine brand, launched MagBlade™ marine propellers at last week's international Marine Trade fair, Mets, in Amsterdam.

The South African venture, where Bendon is a Sales Director, aims to improve on propellor design. MagBlade™, says Bendon takes propulsion design to a new level with unique features like improved fuel efficiency and superior hydrodynamic efficiency.

Designed using a lightweight aerospace technology, MagBlade™ provides a blade surface which claims to be seven times stronger than stainless steel, seven times more rigid than the most hardened steel, and four times more impact absorbent than aluminium.
