Welded Chain Specifications – Transport Chain (Grade 70)

Welded Chain Specifications – Transport Chain (Grade 70)

Significantly higher tensile strength for all load binding and tie-down applications, which permits you to hold a given load with the next smaller size chain than High Test. This increased strength-to-weight ratio means lower costs and a lighter chain, for easier storage and handling.
