Stainless steel generally offers superb resistance to corrosion, chemicals, and heat. Tsubaki offers the following line-up of products taking advantage of stainless steel’s features. These chains are used in a wide range of industries, especially the food industry.
While stainless steel roller chain has excellent corrosion resistance, its strength (maximum allowable load) is only 1/8 that of steel chain. For applications requiring corrosion resistance and the same strength of steel chain, Tsubaki recommends Surface Treated Roller Chains. (However, Surface Treated Roller Chains have less corrosion resistance than stainless steel chain.
