Description

 

The most common and widely used corrosion resistant roller chain in the world is stainless steel roller chain. This is due to the highly anti-corrosive properties of stainless steel, as well as the extremely broad range of temperatures and applications that stainless steel chains can operate in.

304-Grade Stainless Steel – This is the most common grade of stainless steel used because it is a non-magnetic material with good chemical resistance, which is extremely resistant to corrosion and can operate in temperatures ranging from -200° to +700° Degrees Fahrenheit.

316-Grade Stainless Steel – This is the second most common grade used which offers slightly better properties when it comes to chemical attack resistance and welding. We typically produce 316-grade stainless steel roller chains according to ANSI and DIN standard, but we can supply other sizes and even specialty MTO chains in 316-grade as well. Some of the benefits of using a 316-grade stainless steel over 304-grade stainless steel are superior resistance to corrosion, greater resistance to chemical attack, more durable, easier to clean, easier to weld, and in most applications, it will last longer.
