Acco G-4 Hot Galvanized, Carbon Steel Chain
ACCO Grade 43 High-Test Chain features both high tensile strength and resistance to wear needed by marine windlasses, anchor rodes, modern hauling and heavy duty trucking, logging, farming, and construction applications. Working load limits exceed those of ordinary low carbon or general utility chain. ACCO Grade 43 High-Test Chain is embossed with "G4" on every link.
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.
- ISO short link, high tensile strength carbon steel ideal for anchor (windlass) chain.
- Working load limits exceed those of ordinary low carbon or general utility chain
- The short link makes it more flexible and ideally suited as a windlass chain.
- Special Hot Dip Deep Galvanized finish is recommended for all marine applications
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.
