Plastic Roller Chain for Light Duty Applications

Plastic chains have been developed for light duty power transmission applications. They can be used with steel or plastic sprockets, and perform a variety of speeds.

A real advantage of plastic roller chain is that it can perform in harsh chemicals, moisture and various temperature applications. They self-lubricate and are ideal for applications where cleanliness is important. Food processing, medical and computer equipment and clean rooms are common uses for plastic roller chain.

Plastic Roller chain is available in 1/4″ pitch, 3/8″ pitch and 1/2″ pitch in your choice of Nylatron GS, Acetal, Polypropylene and Kynar PVDF.
