| About Mechanical Zinc Plated Chain

Mechanical zinc plated roller chain offers good corrosion resistance without the worry about hydrogen embrittleness and has the same strength as the standard carbon steel roller chain.

Zinc plating is a common corrosion coating and widely used in light corrosive environment.

Comparing traditional electrolytic zinc plating, the mechanical zinc plating does not contain trivalent chromium and hexavalent chromium, and is not harmful to the environment.

The process of mechanical zinc plated is peening the zinc powder mechanically onto the chain component surface.

The process is done without the concern of  hydrogen embrittlement.


To ensure the complete protection of all parts, every component of the chain is zinc-plated before assembly.

Mechanical zinc plating offers good corrosion resistance without losing any strength and performance ratings.

Mechanical zinc plated chains have more than 60 hours corrosion resistance in the salt spray test result (ASTM B117 Testing Standard).


Zinc plating could be applied to almost all of our specifications from roller chains, attachment chains, etc.

Caution

  • Mechanical zinc plated chain is not suggested to contact with stainless steel (sprocket, screw, etc.); it may get rusty as the result of galvanic corrosion.
  • Mechanical zinc plated chain is not suggested to contact food as there would be some powder drops during operation.
