Grade 8 / 80 Lifting Chain - Chain Diameter 7mm to 32mm, WLL 1500kg to 31,500kg
Grade 'T' (8/80) alloy steel lifting chain specifically designed for chain slings, chain conforms to BS EN 818-2.
This Alloy Steel Chain is manufactured specifically for use in chain slings for lifting purposes. The chain is heat treated for tensile strength and resistance to wear whilst also allowing for shock absorption. The chain is easily identifiable with "MA8" embossed at meter intervals.
- Work Load Limit (WLL) is the maximum load which the chains are designed to sustain in lifting use. The mean stress at this load is 200n/mm2 (MPA) and is based on a 4:1 factor of safety.
- Manufacturing Proof Force (MPF) is the force to which during manufacture the chain is subjected to. The mean stress at this load is 500n/mm2 (MPA) which is 2.5 times the working load limit.
- Minimum Breaking Load (MBL) is the minimum force of which the chain must withstand before failure. The mean stress at this load is 800n/mm2 (MPA). The minimum elongation before failure is 20%.
