KMC EPT EcoProTeq stainless chain – 670hrs salt spray rated

KMC EcoProTeq (EPT) stainless chains are rated for 670 hours of salt spray use. Presumably for salted bike paths and roads.
My use riding fat bikes on beaches in salty sandy whitewash, would surface rust seize up any chain left overnight that was only hosed off. The EPT hasn’t been affected by comparison with same treatment. So now less lubing and simpler brushing off cleaning. My experience is with 10sp and narrow single speed chain 3/32” (for Rohloff XL).
Since stumbling on it, I’ve heard similar good reviews from other riders already using the EPT chains. Posting it here to link to in the future instead of repeating the testimonial.
