Alloy Chain is rugged, versatile, high strength, low weight chain manufactured from a special
analysis alloy steel. Peer-Alloy has a comparatively high carbon content as well as containing
various other alloying elements. The chain is quenched and tempered before the proof testing. The ultimate tensile strength of alloy chain is over twice that of ordinary steel chain. The chain is marked to identify grade and manufacturer. These are the only chains recommended for use in over-head lifting applications. Minimum elongation at break test 20%. Tensile strength following heat treatment meets or exceeds all existing OHSA, government, NACM and ASTM specification
requirements. Regularly supplied in Black Protective Finish. Also available in Silver Shield, a cold zinc process equal in protection to hot dip galvanizing.
Grade 80 Alloy steel chain is the most widely used chain for overhead lifting applications and is available from 9/32” through 1-1/2”
