430 Stainless Steel
Cold Rolled Sheet
EN 10088-2, ASTM A240/A240M, 1.4016
Finish: 2R – Bright annealed, smooth, bright and reflective
Type 430 is ductile, has good forming characteristic and is readily fabricated by such operations as bending, pressing, drawing and heading. Its tendency to work harden is much less than that of the nickel-bearing 300 series stainless steel. Type 430 does not have as good corrosion resisting properties as the chromium nickel steels. However, it is suitable for interior architectural and decorative household appliances trim as well as automotive body molding. Cold rolled Type 430 has an attractive bright finish which can be maintained with reasonable care and periodic cleaning. Type 430 has good resistance to a wide variety of corrosive media including nitric acid and some organic acids. It attains its maximum corrosion resistance when in the highly polished or buffed condition. In general its resistance to pitting and crevice corrosion resistance is close to that of grade 304.
