Roller chains with vulcanised elastomer profiles
Roller chains with elastomer profiles are ideal for applications where fragile goods such as coated or thin sheet metal, planed timber planks or pipes require gentle conveyor handling. The chain has a rubber profile that prevents scratches during conveyor transport. The vulcanised elastomer profiles are available in various standard forms, and special profiles are available on request for specific applications.

Elastomer profile chains for particularly gentle handling
A standard rubber profile made from nitrile butadiene rubber (NBR) with a hardness of 80 Shore A is used for elastomer profile chains. NBR combines the best characteristics of static friction, abrasion resistance and durability. Chains with natural rubber or polyurethane profiles are available on request. Operating temperature range: -30°C to +100°C.
All ELITE chain plates are tapered and shot-blasted, while production processes such as fine blanking and ball-drifting ensure a particularly high contact ratio. Roller chains with elastomer profiles feature seamless, cold-extruded, shot-blasted rollers with extremely regular wall thickness.
