Chains and Components Grade 8 and Grade 10

Chains and chains components must be steel grade 8 or 10. These have different minimum breaking loads and, consequently, different working load limits.

  • Certification: EN 818-2 and ASTM A973/A973M-01
  • Safety Factor: 4:1

Main Advantages of Grade 10 over Grade 8:

  • WLL 25% higher
  • Sling weight up to 40% lower
  • Excellent price-performance ratio
  • Chains with greater wear resistance and durability due to increased hardness
