Base chain specifications and features

Standard Series
Base chain: Steel
The main dimensions are the same as with roller chains, but the shape of the pin ends is different. Be aware that the chain is slightly weaker than an RS drive chain.
*Base chain requires lubrication.
NP Series
Base chain: Nickel plated steel
Nickel plated for an attractive appearance and slight corrosion protection.
*Base chain requires lubrication.
LMC-NP Series
Base chain: Lube-free Lambda Chain with oil impregnated sintered bushes
All parts except the bushes are nickel plated.
SS Series
Base chain: All parts 18-8 stainless steel
Can be used in corrosive environments.
*Base chain requires lubrication.
PC Series
Base chain: Poly-steel chain (TN-PC)
Uses a special connecting link for TN chain. This Top Chain is made from engineering plastic and 18-8 stainless steel -- provides corrosion resistant, lube-free, low noise operation.

2. Structure

Illustrations of Structure

TN Series Top Chain uses an RS60 equivalent base chain and snap-on top plates.
The legs of the top plates snap onto the outer links of the base chain.
