Stainless Standard Series Chain

Built to ANSI B29.1 standards, Diamond® Stainless Standard Series chain offers strength and wear performance with the added corrosion resistance of stainless steel. We offer two styles of stainless steel chain:

  • AP Series: Our standard and recommended stainless steel chain for exposure to chemicals or acids, offering the best combination of corrosion resistance and wear performance.
  • 300 Series: Intended for applications requiring superior corrosion performance, low magnetic permeability or a “non-sparking” chain.


Features & Benefits

  • Materials

    The Diamond Difference begins with raw materials that meet exacting standards for metal grade, mechanical properties, carbon and alloy content to ensure minimization of impurities that impact tensile and fatigue strength.

  • Fabrication

    Diamond designs each component to exacting dimensional standards for optimal performance. What makes this chain “corrosion resistant?” To create Stainless Standard series chain, we use stainless steel to provide extra protection against high-corrosion environments.

  • Heat Treatment

    Strict control of atmosphere, time and temperature optimize the material properties – increasing strength, durability and wear resistance.

  • Shot Peening

    Proprietary shot peening equipment was developed specifically to ensure consistent intensity and coverage of components. Shot peening adds a layer of compressive stress that helps components resist fatigue failure when exposed to repeated high loads.

  • Lubrication

    We use a proprietary lubrication process on all lubricated chains for enhanced corrosion protection and extended wear life.

  • Preloading

    Following assembly, all chains are preloaded to firmly seat the pins and bushings. This is to reduce initial run-in and extend the wear life of the chain.
