1.0 ANALYTIC TECHNOLOGY
- State-of-the-art advanced computer technology enables EK to reduce the overall weight by 3% without compromising tensile strength, which in turn extends the life of the chain.
Industry leadingmachining process of all metal surfaces helps create an unmatched and optimal seal of all EK O-Ring and X-Ring chains.
- Additionally, mud and dirt build-up is significantly reduced via this technology.
2.0 HEAT TREATMENT
- All EK off-road race chains utilize EK’s exclusive CRH pin treatment process, which provides an extremely hard outside coating and softer inside to increase strength and reduce wear.
- Superior impact and shock absorption, and reduced oxidation is also a result of EK’s Chromium Carbide pin surface coating.
3.0 MATERIAL ANALYSIS
3.1 BUSHING & ROLLER: EK’s research and development has indicated that one of the initial points of failure is the chain roller – therefore EK features the thickest chain roller in the industry to prolong chain life.
3.2 INNER PLATE: The inner plates have been designed to minimise weight without sacrificing strength which results in increased power and a longer chain life.
3.3 PIN: The exclusive CRH treatment provides an extremely hard outside coating and softer inside to increase strength and reduce wear.
3.4 SEAL RING: EK’s advanced X-Ring technology gives EK unprecedented life on all sealed chains.
