If you’re looking for the best lifting chains and bulk chain in the industry, look no further than grade 120 chain. 120 grade chain is a new generation of high performance chain. With working load limits 50% higher than traditional grade 80 chain, and 20% stronger than grade 100 chain, it’s ideal for any application requiring superior strength.
The higher levels of strength also allows for significant reduction in overall chain weight, an excellent benefit for lifting applications. The added strength comes from the chain’s square link design, which provides higher wear resistance. Because there’s increased contact between the links’ bearing surfaces, pressure is reduced on the chain, which reduces overall wear and encourages a longer working life.
This square profile also offers up to 38% higher moment of resistance in comparison to traditional round links in the same diameter. This translates into the chain being able to withstand bending forces- making it the superior chain for heavy duty jobs.
In comparing chain with the same dimension and workload, grade 120 alloy offers a design factor of 6:1 compared to G80 with 4:1. 120 grade chain is manufactured with a powder coat finish for corrosion protection. The bright blue color also makes it easily identifiable.
Our grade 120 chain comes from the experts at pewag, the leaders in chain technology and manufacturing since its first documented forging plan in Austria in 1479. pewag’s North American distribution company and service center was founded in 1975.
We’re pleased to carry grade 120 chain in four sizes: 9/32", 5/16", 3/8", and 1/2", all in full drum sizes of cut lengths by the foot. Grade 120 fittings are also available. Shop the full selection here: Grade 120 chain.
