What Kind Of Chain Is This?
Perhaps you've heard of Pewag's now famous "3012" chain. Well, that chain is a traction chain, and while it makes for a very strong and imposing security chain, it is prone to surface rust. It has no rust-prohibitive finish on it, because whatever surface rust accumulates really makes no difference in its service life as a traction chain. But since so many people have adopted 3012 as a security chain, Pewag realized it could be even better with an anti-corrosion finish. It took a few months, but now we finally have this new version of 7/16" security chain by Pewag. Same hardness, same toughness, now with an electro-galvanized finish. You may already be familiar with Pewag's 3/8" Square Case Hardened Security Chain
--we literally sell a ton of it. This chain is very similar, except it's 2 mm larger (12 mm or 0.472" to be exact). This makes it beefier and even tougher to cut. But don't worry, if you still want the original 3012 7/16" Black Security Chain
, we still offer it.This Is The Chain You've Been Hearing About
