The new design boasts a variety of advantages over steel chain. Tycan® is eight times lighter than regular

It’s gentler on equipment, environment, and crew. It’s also non-corrosive. Additionally, it is non-conductive, making


it safer than metal chain for use in a variety of applications and environments. Working with Tycan® is virtually silent compared to the loud clanking of metal chain. And finally, the manufacturing process for Tycan® is gentler on the environment than traditional manufacturing methods involved in the creation metal chain. Product will be available from
