The #C2080HX ShieldX™ roller chain is perfect for high corrosive environments where the strength of carbon steel chain is required. The ShieldX™ chain uses a water based zinc-aluminum coating for superior protection in high-moisture and low-mild acidic environments. The coating does not contain harmful toxic metals making this an environmentally-friendly option over other coated chains.

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.
The chain uses a special coating to help fight corrosion that offers superior protection over Nickel & Zinc plated chains. The coating will not flake or chip and the coating is self repairing if it becomes scratched.
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.
