Why be anything but the best?
There had to be a better way. When Atomic Aquatics was founded in 1996, it was a deep-seated passion for diving that compelled us…
A passion to set new standards of excellence and innovation
A passion for superior materials and manufacturing precision
A passion to simplify and enhance the diving experience
The ATOMIC AQUATICS Legend Begins
Divers should enjoy a worry-free experience
Atomic Aquatics founders Dean Garraffa and Doug Toth had already forged a reputation as discerning, demanding designers of innovative diving equipment since 1976. After generating numerous groundbreaking patents for a major manufacturer, they established Atomic Aquatics in 1995 and embarked on a mission to create diving equipment of the highest caliber.
Our Designs Are Radical And Respected
Thankfully, they never took away our colored markers
Atomic designs attract admiring glances…and international awards. We start by identifying a diver’s needs and desires. Then we engineer the technology, materials and ergonomics to achieve maximum performance. Our design philosophy moves freely between pencil sketches and advanced CAD technology to achieve a superior product. Atomic designs have been recognized by numerous industrial design juries, including the prestigious international Red Dot Awards.
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.
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.
