WH78 Welded Steel Chain Construction

Welded steel chains got their name from their construction. A welded steel chain is manufactured with a precision strengthened weld around the outside diameter of the barrel connecting the two sidebars together. Within the barrel, there is the pin which on a WH78 chain the pin is full 360° heat-treated for optimal wear life. Then housing it all are the heat-treated distinctive offset style sidebars.
