Chemical resistance meeting supreme requirements

thanks to carefully used materials and great diversity of applications – also available as special-steel version upon demand.


Resistance to mechanical strain for top-level applications.

As for load lifting, cromox is based on grade 60 (SF 1:4); in conveying, the hard material ensures long service life for the conveyor machines.

In addition to being of grade 60, cromox lifting chains have a safety factor of 1:4, guaranteeing a high degree of trueness of calibration and precise running over the chain links.

cromox anchor chains exceed by far the requirements of DIN and ISO standards as far as their load-bearing capacity and exact running over anchor windlass wheels is concerned.


Optimum surface finish thanks to a variety of methods of treatment, some of which have been specially developed:

natural black for further processing, mechanically brightened for conveying, electropolished for the food and leisure industries, pickled for use as anchor chains, blasted for the lifting of loads.


Materials, which have been specially selected.

Our products are mainly consisting of 1.4404 (AISI 316 L) (low-magnetic) or of 1.4462 (AISI 318 LN) (magnetic), which offer excellent chemical and mechanical advantages.

These are: a better corrosion resistance and more favourable mechanical properties.


Optimised accessories for individual requirements:

chains, links, hooks, connectors, shorteners, shackles, swivels and rotary parts.


A multiplicity of possible combinations of individual components,

for use in a variety of fields including:

  • Chemistry
  • Food industry
  • Water and wastewater engineering
  • Environmental technology
  • Renewable energies
  • Power plant engineering
  • Naval and military technology
  • Nautical engineering
  • Mechanical and plant engineering
