Maggis' famous Grade 40 8mm Short Link Stainless Steel Anchor chain. This is a Grade 40 so the same as the AQUA4 steel range and 33% stronger than all other Stainles Steel chains except the Maggi made G50.
This is not a 5/16"imperial sized chain, it is a metric 8mm. There is a big difference.
Note: As the Maggigroup use high grade materials and processes do not apply the following numbers to other manufacturers chain. There are many chains being called the same thing yet have loads only 50% of Maggigroup products.
Maggigroup® chain production is distinguished by the presence of a number of special processes all managed with vast know how and safety. The Maggigroup® engineers did not restrict themselves by only acquiring all the technologies available in the market to manufacturer their chains but in fact to a great extent redefined those but building ad-hoc machinery and systems that represent the latest technological excellence in the industry.
Maggigroup® has been manufacturing chains since 1925 and all products undergo stringent controls, which not only involve the functional testing of individual pieces but also includes the identification and evaluation of the product in terms of the environment impact and risks to the user. These processes not only satisfy environmental requirements relating to product use but also guarantee the end user gets a top quality product, which is always the Maggigroup® prime concern.
This makes Maggigroup® chains world leaders in performance, safety and reliability.

Specifications subject to change if the manufacturer so desires. But that is unlikely in our opinion.
1 kN = approx. 102 kilograms. Or 101.971621298 to be more precise.
What the!!! do those Terms mean? Better check here for more detail then. (Will open in new window)
