Description & Specifications
16B roller chain is a metric chain size with a 1" ptich (25.40mm) and commonly referred to as a British Standard chain. Not only does Nitro chain conform to ISO606, BS228, DIN 8187 standards, it actually exceeds the strength standards. Nitro 16B metric roller chain is always manufactured high quality carbon steel for optimum strength & longevity. Prior to assembly, the individual chain components goes through special processes that ultimately improves the durability & fatigue resistance. Every 10 foot roll of 16B chain includes 1 connecting link.

All dimensions listed are nominal values.
Manufactured with solid cold-forged rollers for smoother contact with the sprocket teeth and to resist distorting under heavy loads.
Built with solid cold-forged bushings for superior wear resistance that results in service life 2x to 3x greater than split bushing chains. See the solid bushing advantage.
After assembly, all Nitro chains are pre-loaded to a minimum load required by the industry standard. Pre-loading seats the chain joint that eliminates any initial elongation in a new chain.
Pre-lubricated in a special formulated lubricant through a hot-dipping process. This process is critical to ensure the lubricant penetrates and thoroughly coats the internals of the chain. The special lubricant offers better retention (less spin-out) and improved wear protection over chains that are cold-dipped.
Advanced heat treatment is applied to achieve optimum hardness for strength and wear resistance.
To combat fatigue failure from repetitive loads & wear, a compressive stress layer is added through shot peening.
Product Care & Maintenance
Maintenance and lubrication is crucial in the overall performance and life span of roller chain. Proper lubrication will reduce abrasion, chain wear, friction, noise and keep chains running cooler at higher RPM's. You can download the Nitro Roller Chain Care below.
