8mm Titan Grade 43 Calibrated Anchor Chain is manufactured, hot dip galvanised, hall-marked, proof tested and engineered by CMP to specifications exceeding DIN766

Titan Chain Titan Marine Products are a brand of Canada Metal (Pacific), the manufacturers of the world renowned Rocna and Vulcan range of anchors. CMP pecialise in the manufacture of World Class Marine Anchor Chain

Titan G43 Chain specification and the resulting higher than comparable Grade 40 break loads are testimony to the quality of the steel and the manufacturing process.

All Titan Marine Chains are manufactured and proof tested in a ISO-9001 environment to ensure their lasting quality and strength for yacht anchoring and mooring.

All Titan Grade 40 Chain is clearly embossed at regular intervals with G43, CMP and DIN766 or ISO as appropriate. This is a clear testament to their confidence in the chain and galvanising quality

All Titan Grade 43 Chain is hot dipped galvanised to a minimum 100 Microns

8mm DIN766 Titan Grade 43 Anchor Chain is generally suitable for yachts up to approximately 12 metres, length overall
Factor in:
Displacement : Length ratio
Your cruising intentions
The anticipated anchorage conditions e.g. depth, seabed holding characteristics, the length of fetch and degree of exposure to prevailing winds
The length of chain that will be deployed and any extra scope provided by an anchor warp
The weight and design of anchor

Your anchor rode is only as strong as the weakest link so ensure that all your connectors and shackles are rated to the requisite break load

There is one main calibration for 8mm chain - DIN766

N.B. Some Windlass and Chain manufacturers also refer to 8mm ISO 4565 but the dimensions are exactly the same as DIN766.
It is very important to check the size and calibration of your gypsy/chain before you order.
If you are unsure we can help you to decide - we will take all reasonable steps to ensure you get the correct chain.
The simplest way to check that you are buying the correct calibration is to take a measurement from your existing chain, providing of course that it fits correctly.

We measure 10 links because, in practice, it is difficult to measure one link accurately enough.
The links should be laid out flat and pulled tight.
Measure from the outside edge to outside edge.
Compare your measurement with our stock:
Jimmy Green Titan Grade 43 8mm DIN766 = approximately 253mm

Determining the Correct Calibration

N.B. The measurement for an old chain may be a little longer than new due to a degree of wear and elongation in use

Titan Anchor Chain exceeds DIN766 specifications

Jimmy Green Quality Control and Accountability
Every length of chain is checked and labelled with the manufacturer, the date received and a corresponding batch number when it arrives.
The batch number is then recorded at the point of sale.
Every chain order is therefore traceable and accountable to the manufacturer Test Certificate.

A copy of the corresponding Titan Test Certificate is available with your order on request.
