ACCO BBB Anchor Chain

Bulk Chain

We stock a complete selection of I.S.O. standard chain from Acco to fit almost any windlass. All Acco chain is hot-dip galvanized, which is superior to the zinc electroplating used by most other major U.S. chain vendors. When comparing Acco chain to other brands, be sure to ask if other models are hot-dip." Remember that the Safe Working Load (SWL) is a conservative rating for safety and should not be exceeded, although the breaking strength is generally 3-4 times greater. Proof Coil (PC) is made of low-carbon steel and designed for ordinary marine applications, but not for use in most windlasses due to its long links. BBB is made of low-carbon steel, but has shorter, calibrated links that are designed to be compatible with many windlasses. Sold by the foot. We will contact you if chain quantity purchased requires truck freight at additional shipping charge.

      Comments about Acco 5/16" Bbb Chain, 1900lb. Swl, 7600lb. Breaking Strength, 1.2lb./ft.:

      In December 2011 I purchased 200' of BBB 5/16, galvanized chain made by Acco, 4 months later my chain was rusted. I got a replacement and now my new chain is rusting event more than the first one. I got a second replacement. It steel in the delivery barrel it looks like electro plated not hot deep galvanized. I know it will rust again. Save yourself a lot of trouble don't buy Acco chain.

          Comments about Acco 5/16" Bbb Chain, 1900lb. Swl, 7600lb. Breaking Strength, 1.2lb./ft.:

          I bought ACCO chain because it is American made and supposedly better than the cheaper foreign-made chain, but was a bit surprised to see that on the end links it looked like the galvanizing had been scraped through and I could see bare steel. I am replacing rusty 26 year old chain and don't know how long this chain will last given that the galvanizing seems quite thin, despite the fact that this is supposed to be hot-dipped chain.
          Guess I'll watch it carefully and see.
          Wish I had known that you can have chain re-galvanized for less than a dollar a pound before my old chain eroded past the point where I could have that done!
