Effects of Hazardous Conditions
The strength of all chain slings is adversely affected by heat so care must be exercised when using at elevated
temperatures. Where temperatures are likely to be higher than 200ºC reductions in the working load limits of
Alloy 800 slings should be applied. (See table)
Alloy 800 Chain & Fittings do not require periodic heat treatment and
must never be heat treated.
Alloy 800 Chain & Fittings should not be used in acid or other corrosive
Alloy 800 Chain & Fittings must never be hot dipped, mechanically galvanised or electroplated except by PWB
Anchor. Hot dipped galvanised slings must always have their working load reduced by 20%.
