Tsubaki has launched the G8 Series (eighth-generation) of its RS Roller Chain and its Heavy Duty Drive Chain.
RS Roller Chain is the company's standard, designed to meet the needs of most applications. Heavy Duty Drive Chain is an endurance chain with a high maximum allowable tension for particularly demanding situations.
The G8 RS Roller Chain offers a 20% improvement in service life over the previous designs and a special corrosion suppressing oil is applied to the chain in the final stage of manufacture to inhibit rust and improve durability. Developed in-house, this oil does not leave a sticky residue on the chain surface, making handling cleaner and more pleasant. The new G8 chain is available in 11 sizes from RS40 to RS240.
