GRADE

Grade 430 (UNS S43000, EN 1.4016) is the most widely used family of Ferritic alloys. It’s also one of widely used “non-hardenable” stainless with good physical and mechanical characteristics, about three-quarters the ductility of low carbon strip and inferior to chrome-nickel grades; cost less than chromium-nickel stainless steels. It is known for its good corrosion resistance to numerous substance, excellent stress, and formability, coupled with practical mechanical properties.

It is a magnetic stainless steel in the annealed condition. It can be formed using a large variety of roll forming or mild stretch-bending operations, as well as the more common drawing and bending processes.

The steel has limited weldability and should not be used in the as welded condition for dynamic or impact loaded structures. It has excellent resistance to citric and nitric acid, sulfur gases; slightly less corrosion and heat resistant than grade 301, 302, and 304, can be used in certain chemical applications.

RAW MATERIAL FINISHS & AVAILABLE SIZES

2D A uniform, dull silver gray finish, which results from cold rolling followed by annealing and descaling.
Range 914 (3') 1000 1219 (4') 1250 1500 1524 (5')
0.3mm ~ 3.0mm
30GA ~ 11GA
0.012" ~ 0.1196"
2B
(Mill Finish)
A bright, cold-rolled finish resulting in the same manner as 2D finish, except that the annealed and descaled sheet received a final light roll pass through polished rolls. This is the general-purpose cold-rolled finish that can be used, or a preliminary step to polishing.
Range 914 (3') 1000 1219 (4') 1250 1500 1524 (5')
0.3mm ~ 3.0mm
30GA ~ 11GA
0.012" ~ 0.1196"
BA
(Bright Anneal)
A highly reflective, mirror like finish, which was produced by bright annealing under Oxygen-free atmospheric conditions following cold rolling using polished rolls.
