  • Stainless Steel Roller Chain

Stainless Steel Roller Chain (SS)

Roller Chain using 18-8 stainless steel.

Provides even greater corrosion resistance than RS Roller Chain or RS surface treated chain. Can be used in water or in acidic, alkali, or other corrosive environments, as well as in low and high temperature ranges.

RS80-SS and RS100-SS have been renewed. Maximum allowable load has been increased by 1.5 times due to reviewing bushings. Wear life has also improved.

SS Series

1. Features/Applications

Strong corrosion resistance thanks to 18-8 stainless steel
Uses 18-8 stainless steel to provide superior corrosion resistance over surface treated RS Roller Chain for use in water or in acidic, alkali, or other corrosive environments.
Corrosion resistance guide for Roller Chains
Usable in low and high temperature ranges
Usable in a vast range of temperatures, from -20ºC to 400ºC.
*While the 18-8 stainless steel material is itself largely non-magnetic, it has sligacht magnetism due to the cold forging process.
