- Acco A-4, Grade 40 Metric Windlass Chain
- Acco G-40 - DIN766 High-Test Chain
- The short link makes it more flexible and ideally suited as a windlass chain
- Ideal for use as an all chain rode for smaller boats using a windlass with minimal free fall
- Perfect for compact / shallow anchor lockers
- A very popular as a chain anchor rode used in Europe
- High tensile strength and resistance to wear needed by both marine windlasses and anchor rodes
- Working load limits exceed those of ordinary low carbon or general utility chain
- Peerless Grade 40 - A4 is embossed with A4 approximately every foot
- Hot Galvanized, Carbon Steel Chain
- Special Hot Dip Deep Galvanized finish is recommended for all marine applications
- Acco chain is Continuously Hot Dip Galvanized to provide a deep strong protective coating which has over 30% more zinc per unit volume than mechanical coatings
- In the Hot Dip process the galvanized zinc coating is alloyed with the base steel creating a metallurgical bond that is several orders of magnitude stronger than mechanical bonding (zinc electroplating) used by most chain manufacturers
- In the hot dip process this chain is specially shot-peened before galvanizing to create the longest lasting protection against corrosion
- This zinc-steel bond is immune to further corrosion for the life of the zinc
- If the chain's steel base is exposed by cuts or nicks the base steel will not rust until the nearby zinc is consumed
Note: Most brands of windlasses require either BBB or G4 High Test chain, because the links are more uniform in size and more flexible than proof coil. Each windlass is sized for a specific chain. Be sure to check your windlass instructions or contact the windlass manufacturer for correct sizing.
