Corrosion resistant high-quality chain solutions

Corrosion resistance contributes to longevity and ensures functionality in demanding environments. Harmful elements such as moisture, salt and chemicals can affect the material strength of the chain links and lead to a reduced life. The choice of the right material and the appropriate surface or further processing is crucial for corrosion resistance.

Stainless steel and certain alloys or treatments such as electropolishing offer excellent solutions here.

They also reduce maintenance requirements and the associated costs. Corrosion-resistant chains are ideal for applications in demanding industrial sectors such as heavy industry, maritime transport or the chemical industry. Investing in corrosion-resistant chain solutions pays off in many ways because they reduce operating costs and increase productivity.

High quality raw materials: a must for chain manufacturers

Quality is a decisive factor for us as a manufacturer of chains. This starts with the purchase of the highest quality stainless steel.

The manufacturing and processing process itself is just as important. State-of-the-art technology is used to ensure optimum performance and durability of the chains. Continuous quality controls during and after production are essential, as is the testing of the chains in our own Lloyd's Register-certified test laboratory. Certifications from independent testing organisations can also confirm the quality. Finally, customer service is another aspect that should not be neglected. After all, good service also contributes to overall quality and strengthens customer confidence in the manufacturer.


What are stainless steel chains?

Chains are link chains in which the chain links are joined together directly. They are used for lifting, conveying and lashing.

What are the advantages of stainless steel chain?

A stainless steel chain is rustproof and offers the following advantages:

  • Corrosion-resistant to acids, chemicals, salt, etc.
  • Temperature-resistant
  • Clean surface for optimum hygienic conditions and easy cleaning
  • Durable

What quality classes are there for chains?

Grade classes for chains play a decisive role in safety and reliability. Grade 60/Grade 60+ chains used for cromox® chains are characterised by the highest quality. Their advantages are excellent strength and increased load capacity compared to lower grades. These chains are ideal for demanding applications where safety and load capacity are of paramount importance.

At your side as a qualified partner

Our cromox® chain solutions are "Made in Germany", quality-tested in our own test laboratory and fulfil all common standards and quality classes depending on the application, for example analogous to DIN 766 / 5684 / 5687. In addition, we use our engineering and materials expertise to develop application-specific sling systems for you – precisely according to your specifications and application purposes.
