YBN SLA Chain Info
YBN is now available in the UK, but since 1989 they have sold millions of chains throughout the world. As one of the industry's leading manufacturers, they pride themselves on product innovation and the relentless pursuit of quality. Their flagship 6.4 titanium chain is a case in point: YBN is the only manufacturer producing a titanium chain and the first company to harden titanium chain rollers with the DHA chromium process. The result is a titanium chain that shares the same dependability and service life as a steel chain. YBN has also led the industry with the development of Ni-PTFE coatings and was one of the first two chain manufacturers to introduce an 11-speed chain in 2008.
A big company doesn't necessarily equate to good products, but with YBN this is unequivocally the case. Tested at friction-facts.com, YBN's titanium chain posted an incredibly low 4.75 total watts of total friction, amazing when you consider there are over 800 contact points in a chain. This level of performance cannot be achieved without extraordinary engineering and exacting, controlled production. It's important to note that YBN's steel chains are made with the same technology and quality as their titanium counterparts. YBN may make over 20 million chains a year, but their high tech equipment and skilled personnel closely monitor each chain during production.
SLA Superior Lubricating Aid series
YBN took two years to explore the Ni-PTFE Teflon Coating, and made the "SLA" Superior Lubricating Aid series. Less Friction, Smooth, Noiseless and Easy cleaning are the main characteristics of SLA chain series. The Durability of the SLA series are upgraded 200% by these characteristics. SLA Superior Lubricating Aid series no need to grease heavily, slightly greased after cycling will be fine.
Chromium Carbide Surface Hardened Treatment
YBN has been using the DHA Chromium Carbide Surface Hardened Treatment to increase the hardness of chain pins. Excellent performance can be expected even in adverse conditions, including the presence of abrasive contaminants. Furthermore, DHA pins is also anti-rust. DHA Chromium Carbide Surface hardened pins are able to prolong 100% of lifetime. The chains are not prolonged easily
