Our complete chain range is galvanised as per EN ISO 1461 standard, which requires a minimum 58 micron galvanisation thickness. Our chain goes through regular testing in accelerated seawater environment to guarantee a regular galvanisation quality. A specific engineering process provides a better hold of the galvanisation on the metal, to ensure a longer lifetime. Hot dip galvanisation is engineered with zinc. There may be cases where a marina would be unusually exposed to galvanic currents which could generate a chain deterioration. In such cases, we recommend to use mooring anodes (ref. 38266 & 38267), which will protect both the chain and the metallic parts of the boat.

Plastimo tips & tricks

Every windlass is designed to operate with a specific type of chain. It is essential to read the windlass manual in order to select the most appropriate chain. In the event that you might select an inappropriate chain, it could slip in the gipsy when under load, while the anchor is holding firmly.
