Answer

The average tensile strength is where a load is applied to a chain until it breaks. This process is repeated several times to obtain the 'average' tensile strength. FACT: Tensile strength does NOT determine quality of a chain.

The working load rating is the maximum load a chain can withstand without fatigue failure. Under normal circumstances you should theoretically obtain a 15,000 hour service life. Many factors will affect service life.
