Plastic chains are well regarded for their quiet operation and low weight. Plastic chains from Uni-Chains are made out of different materials and designs. Our material range is constantly growing. The chains are delivered as straight running type or side flex.
Primary material used is acetal supplied in three versions:
D-acetal polymers with self-lubricating Guide components;
LF-acetal polymers with increased number of self-lubricating components;
SLF-acetal polymers with additives which achieve the smallest friction resistance.
Uni-chains also produces chains made of other materials. The whole range of plastic chains that Uni-chains produces can be supplied with embedded rubber inserts that allow elevated transport of products such as smooth boxes with pitch in excess of 4 ° without worrying that the boxes will slip off.
