The engineering plastic rollers used with LSC Series may suffer premature wear when using in contact with water or underwater. Use in these environments is not recommended.

2. Points of Caution

  • The engineering plastic rollers used with LSC Series may suffer premature wear when using in contact with water or underwater. Use in these environments is not recommended.
  • There is an engineering plastic sleeve (black pipe) between the pins and bushes. Be careful that the sleeve does not fall out when disassembling the chain, and always be sure that the engineering plastic sleeve is inserted between pins and bushes when connecting.
