Product Types/Features
SS Series
SS Series
Our basic stainless chain using SUS304 equivalent material. Perfect for use in water or in acidic, alkali, or other corrosive conditions.

Details
NS Series
NS Series
Uses SUS316 stainless steel for better corrosion resistance than SS Series. Use in circumstances requiring greater corrosion level of resistance than SS Series.

AS Series
AS Series
Pins and rollers use precipitation hardened stainless for 1.5x the maximum allowable load of SS Series. Nevertheless, AS Series has less corrosion level of resistance than SS Series.
