Now Stocking 100 Grade Chain

We are happy to announce we are now stocking 100 Grade Chain available by the full and half keg.

100 Grade, alloy chain is rugged, versatile, high-strength, low-weight chain manufactured from special analysis alloy steel. It is quenched and tempered before proof testing and the ultimate tensile strength is over twice that of ordinary steel chain. Tensile strength following heat treatment meets or exceeds all existing OSHA, Government, NACM and ASTM specification requirements. Large diameter grade 80 alloy chain is also available upon request.  Sizes available are 1-1/2", 1-3/4", and 2”.

Grade 100 chain is commonly used for overhead lifting applications because of its excellent energy absorption properties; however Grade 100 chain has the greatest strength to weight ratio of the alloy chains. Our 100 Grade chain and components meet the latest guidelines of the National Association of Chain Manufacturers (NACM). ASTM A952/A952M and ASTM A973/A973M.


  • 100 chain is on average a 25% greater Working Load Limit (WLL) over 80 chain.

  • Users can experience more working power (WLL) with a smaller diameter chain based upon application.

  • Grade 100 reduces the wear on the outer link from dragging on continuous contact with abrasive materials - and because Grade 100 is harder and more durable, inner link wear associated with normal use is reduced as well - which extends the life of the chain.

  • Special chemistry and heat treating processes make Grade 100 our strongest chain option.
