We know corrosion can have a significant impact on the service life and performance of a roller chain. This is why we stock a full range of corrosion resistant chain that has different levels of corrosion resistance for various applications. Many of the chain we offer have good resistance to many acidics, alkalis and chemicals. Our line of corrosion resistant chain is available for applications ranging from outdoor enclosed gate operators to parts wash-down machines.
Stainless steel roller chain is perfect for almost all high corrosive & high temperature applications. Nitro stainless roller chain is manufactured from #304 stainless material. The only drawback #304 stainless roller chain is that the material is naturally
softer, so you do lose significant strength over carbon steel roller chain.
Dacromet roller chain is a great option for medium-high corrosive applications where the strength of carbon steel is needed. Nitro dacromet chain has a special corrosive resistant coating that's baked on the chain components prior to assembly.
Our nickel plated roller chain is perfect for mildly corrosive environments such as enclosed gate operators.
Zinc chain is very similar to nickel plated roller chain as far corrosion resistance. Some applications where chemical are involved may not allow the of nickel plated products due to possible chemical interactions.
Plastic chain is great for light-duty applications where the chain may encounter certain chemicals, solvents & fuels. Our plastic roller chain is manufactured from Acetal Copolymer with stainless steel plates & pins. Acetal Copolymer has greater impact resistance over many other plastic roller chains in the market.
