Corrosion Resistant roller chain can be called Dacromet or Armor coated chain. Features of this chain is the strength of carbon steel with a corrosion resistance exceeding nickel plated chain. The baked on coating is applied both prior to assembly and again after assembly.
Dacromet or Armor coated roller chains are best used in applications that require a high-strength economical corrosion resistant roller chain. We have single strand, double strand, triple strand, and double pitch roller chains, as well as attachments available from stock with a corrosion resistant coating.
We offer all our coated precision roller chain in 10’ coils, 50’ and 100’ reels. Contact us today 800-648-5429 if you’d like USA made Precison Roller Chain. farmchains.com
Coated Roller Chain vs. Standard
When comparing coated roller chains with standard roller chains that have both run in a medium corrosive environment (gate operator near the coastline), you can see from the above image that the standard chain started to show major signs of rust while the coated roller chain still looks practically new.
Corrosive environments can have a severe impact on the performance and effect the service life of a roller chain. We have evolved with various roller chain options that were engineered to deliver better protection and performance in various environments. We have chain solutions to help fight corrosion in any application ranging from food conveyor systems to salt spreading equipment.
