40SS-2 is a double strand ANSI roller chain with a standard 1/2" pitch. The double row roller chain is manufactured from #304 stainless steel material. The Nitro™ 40SS-2 roller chain us both solid bushing & solid rollers to increase the overall strength and longevity. Stainless steel roller chains are great for highly corrosive applications as well as high/low temperature environments.

Chain Material:#304 Stainless
304 stainless material is highly corrosive resistant and can withstand hot/cold environments with ambient temperatures ranging from -40°F Up To 752°F.
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.
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.
