Hoist chains, offer excellent core toughness and have high breaking strength with resistance to brittle fracture. These characteristics, together with a high wear resistance and fatigue life determine the quality of a hoist chain used for lifting. In selecting the correct hoist chain it is generally necessary to consider a balance between increased case hardened depth and the tensile load capability of the chain.

RUD chains combine an extraordinary high strength and toughness with very high wear resistance. These are the characteristics required for safe operation of heavy duty hoisting devices.
