It Really Is Rocket Science
Groundbreaking “firsts” require new thinking
After developing the world’s first all-Titanium regulator, we were faced with a unique problem, what could we do for act two? The success of the Atomic T1 confirmed that divers want products born from new thinking. They embrace new materials and designs and realize the benefits of improved performance. So we launched an aggressive R&D program to seek materials and employ new designs that enhance the diving experience for divers of every skill level.
The Atomic DNA starts with the metals
Every Atomic product design starts with the careful selection of the perfect material. We don't let cost or manufacturing difficulty limit us. The number one priority is choosing the right metal to deliver the best diving performance. In many cases, this requires the development of new manufacturing processes never before utilized in the scuba industry.
Even though it all started with Titanium, Atomic embraced a R&D philosophy to seek materials that perfectly integrate with designs to give divers options. Our engineers carefully choose metals to provide a superior level of diving performance for every skill level, minimal maintenance, and greater product longevity. Great attention is given to consider every budget level as well. Every Atomic regulator model is designed to appeal to a specific diver’s needs, while delivering the highest possible performance.
It’s All About Titanium
Titanium is the perfect material for the ocean environment.
Titanium is strong as steel, yet half the weight. Titanium is inert in sea water while steel rusts, unprotected brass turns green and corrodes, and aluminum pits. Even though Titanium is a very exotic, expensive and difficult metal to fabricate, Atomic developed cost-effective processes. Now divers benefit with a lightweight, high-performance, low-maintenance diving experience.
