Corrosion Resistant Chain

Whether your operation requires a sanitary environment, is exposed to corrosive chemicals, is heated to extreme temperatures, runs through a freezer, is exposed to the outdoors or is affected by excessive moisture: our specially designed and tested chains will outlast your current chains and contribute to a cost effective application.

Tsubaki can provide you with both BS and ANSI chains that are Corrosion Resistant

BS PC Engineering Plastic Combination Chain
The pins and pin link plates of these chains are made of SUS304 (spring clips SUS301). Engineering plastic (white) is used for the inner link. This combination makes it a lube-free, low noise (5 dB lower than BS standard roller chain) and lightweight chain (50% lighter than BS standard roller chain). Working temperature range: -10°C to +80°C. For details on corrosion resistance, please check out our Corrosion Resistance Guide.

BS SS Stainless Steel Chain
All basic components of this chain are made of Stainless Steel SUS304 (except the spring clips, which are made of SUS301). This chain can be used in special environments such as underwater, acidic and alkaline applications. It can also be used in high and low temperatures (-20°C to +400°C). SUS304 is only marginally magnetic, which is the result of the cold-forging process. For details on corrosion resistance, please check out our Corrosion Resistance Guide.

ANSI PC Engineering Plastic Combination Chain
The pins and pin link plates of these chains are made of SUS304 (spring clips SUS301). Engineering Plastic (white) is used for the inner link. This combination makes it a lube-free, low noise (5 dB lower than ANSI standard roller chain) and lightweight chain (50% lighter than ANSI standard roller chain). Working temperature range: -10°C to +80°C. For details on corrosion resistance, please check out our Corrosion Resistance Guide.

ANSI SS Stainless Steel Chain
All basic components of this chain are made of Stainless Steel SUS304 (except the spring clips, which are made of SUS301). This chain can be used in special environments such as underwater, acidic and alkaline applications. It can also be used in high and low temperatures (-20°C to +400°C). SUS304 is only marginally magnetic, due to the cold-forging process. For details on corrosion resistance, please check out our Corrosion Resistance Guide.

ANSI AS Stainless Steel Chain
The pins and rollers of this roller chain are made of precipitation hardened, tempered stainless steel (SUS600). The link plates and the bushes are made of SUS304 stainless steel (spring clips are SUS301). The Maximum Allowable Load is 1.5 times that of ANSI SS chain. Corrosion resistance is slightly lower than standard SS chain. This chain is suitable where corrosion and heat resistance is required in a heavy duty drive application and where a smaller ANSI SS chain is preferred. Magnetism exists due to the use of precipitation-hardened SUS600. The working temperature range: -20°C to +400°C.
