Grade 80 Alloy Chain
Grade 80 chain is recommended by OSHA for overhead lifting applications and is most commonly used in sling assemblies.In the majority of cases, either Grade 80 or Grade 100 chain can be used for a lifting application. However, there are some situations in which Grade 80 is the better choice.Grade 100 chain is tempered at a lower temperature than Grade 80 chain. This becomes important in steel mills, where chain that has been tempered at the highest possible temperature is preferable, as it is less likely to be permanently degraded by the extreme temperatures present in the mill. So, in steel mills—or other high-heat environments—Grade 80 chain is a preferred, often mandated, option.Call us at 800.362.4601 or click here if you need Grade 80 chain products!
